It has been a long road to get to the title of Daniel Craig's fifth outing as the iconic British spy, James Bond, directed by Cary Fukunaga. For a while the film was variously rumoured to be Eclipse, A Reason to Die, and Shatterhand. But now, finally, the truth is out. The next James Bond film, Bond 25, will officially be called No Time to Die.

The title seems to reference two punchy scenes from 2015’s Spectre. In the first, Bond tells Blofeld: “I came here to kill you,” and Blofeld replies: “And I thought you came here to die.” In the second, Bond says, “Doesn’t time fly?” and then throws an exploding watch at Blofeld. The callbacks to these two scenes suggest that No Time to Die will resume the intense to-the-death rivalry between Bond and Blofeld.

Also, according to reports, No Time To Die will begin with Bond enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica after leaving active service, and then enters his friend Felix Leiter from CIA, seeking his help. What begins as a mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist, leads to a mysterious villain armed with dangerous technology.

Fleabag creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge is one of the writers. Ralph Fiennes and Ben Whishaw will return as M and Q respectively, while Rami Malek will be seen as the villain.

Naomie Harris will be making a return as Moneypenny and Rory Kinnear will again play MI6 chief of staff Bill Tanner. Lea Seydoux will be reprising her Madeleine Swann character from 2015's Spectre, while Jeffrey Wright is coming back as ex-CIA agent Felix Leiter.

Fukunaga came on board last year after Danny Boyle left the project over unspecified "creative differences"

No Time To Die will be released on 3 April, 2020 in the UK and India, and on the 8 April in the US.
