New James Bond movie, No Time to Die, almost took place inside 007’s head
No Time to Die, a new James Bond movie originally scheduled for April 10 2020 release, was moved to November 25 2020. Director Cary Joji Fukunaga (True Detective, Beasts of No Nation, Maniac) revealed that he was considering an idea that most of the new movie would take place in James Bond’s head.
As there are few storytelling devices cheap as the “it was all in his head” gimmick thank God director Fukunaga decided to reject his own idea as it would likely have infuriated 007 fans.
No Time to Die, 25th James Bond film, directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga (True Detective, Beasts of No Nation, Maniac) and starring Daniel Craig (Casino Royale, Skyfall, Knives Out, Layer Cake), Rami Malek (Mr Robot, Bohemian Rhapsody), Ana de Armas (Blade Runner 2049, Knives Out), Léa Seydoux (Spectre, Beauty and the Beast, The Grand Budapest Hotel), Christoph Waltz (Inglourious Basterds, Django Unchained, The Zero Theorem, Alita), Naomie Harris (Skyfall, Rampage), Ralph Fiennes (The Constant Gardener, Harry Potter, Spectre, The Grand Budapest Hotel, Schindler’s List), Ben Whishaw (Perfume, Cloud Atlas) and Jeffrey Wright (Westworld, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire) will be released on November 25 in the US.
James Bond has left active service. His peace is short-lived when Felix Leiter, an old friend from the CIA, turns up asking for help, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology.
