THE TITLE of Daniel Craig’s final James Bond film has been revealed and it’s a return to a familiar theme for Pierce Brosnan fans.
The 25th official James Bond movie has been given the title No Time To Die.
007 producers confirmed the news via an official announcement made on Twitter.
The film will mark Craig’s fifth outing at Bond, with 007 set to go up against “a mysterious villain” in the form of Oscar-winner Rami Malek.
Ralph Fiennes and Ben Whishaw are set to return as M and Q respectively while Naomie Harris is back as Moneypenny and Rory Kinnear will play MI6 chief of staff Bill Tanner again.
Spectre star Lea Seydoux is reprising her part as Madeleine Swann while Jeffrey, most notably, Wright is returning as ex-CIA agent Felix Leiter.
Cary Joji Fukunaga, whose credits include the first series of HBO's True Detective and Netflix's Maniac, is directing based on a script co-written by Fleabag scribe Phoebe Waller-Bridge.
The inclusion of the word “die” in the title has sparked speculation Craig’s Bond could be killed off.
It marks the third time the word “die” has featured in a 007 film title – with mixed results.
Brosnan has starred in two decidedly iffy entries featuring the word die – Tomorrow Never Dies and Die Another Day, an entry widely viewed as the worst in the franchise.
There have been some bright spots though – Roger Moore’s Live and Let Die is a classic.
