It was last year that famed British director Danny Boyle exited from James Bond franchise over ‘creative differences’ and was replaced by Cary Joji Fukunaga. Due to this reason the film, which was initially expected to release in November 2019, was pushed to 2020. Though, the latest 007 adventure has faced a number of problems in the past, it was recently revealed that the 25th James Bond film will be called No Time to Die. The announcement came from the official 007 Twitter account, which also confirmed Daniel Craig’s return to the franchise as its protagonist.

No Time to Die is the fifth 007 film featuring Daniel Craig and follows 2015’s Spectre. Craig’s first 007 film was 2006’s Casino Royale, having taken over the role from Pierce Brosnan.

According to the producers of the film, the 25th installment will see Bond enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica after leaving his active service. His peace is short-lived when an old friend from the CIA turns up asking for help. The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology.

Besides Craig, the upcoming movie features Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris and Ben Whishaw, who will be reprising their roles as M, Moneypenny and Q, respectively. As for new cast members, it includes Oscar winner Rami Malek as the lead villain and Captain Marvel star Lashana Lynch who is rumoured to be taking over from 007 at the end of the film, said to be Craig’s last.
