There were a lot of considerations about who would be playing the role of James Bond in the next movie of the franchise, and several leading actors from Idris Elba to Tom Hardy and Theo James were examined to play the role of this charming British secret service agent. However, all these speculations were put to rest when Daniel Craig agreed to star as our favorite spy one more time in the latest venture of the franchise.
When is the movie expected to release?
The movie was set to release in April of this year; however, due to the delay in production caused by the Corona outbreak, the date of release had been pushed further back. The official date of release has now been declared as November 12th of this year, but if the widespread pandemic induced lockdown is not resolved anytime soon, we can expect the release date to be pushed further into 2021.
What do we know about the cast and plot so far?
The plot of the movie is pretty straightforward. James Bond is assigned on a mission to save a kidnapped scientist and make sure that no harm comes to his latest technology. With an unknown villain trailing his every movie, will the world-famous spy be able to save the day once again?
This movie will once again have Daniel Craig appearing as our globetrotting English spy, and we also have Ana De Armas playing an important role in the movie. Co-incidentally this will not be their first pair up because they had already been well-acquainted through the “Knives Out” movie.
Interestingly the movie will have Phoebe Wallace Bridge (Fleabag creator) working as the screenwriter, and Craig in multiple interviews had told that this is going to be one of the selling points of the movie.
During his time as the host of the Saturday Night Live, Daniel Craig had made his intentions clear that this would be the last time he will appear as Jame Bond. Therefore it is quite unlikely for us to expect him to star in another Bond film.
If you are still worried about the delay in the release of the film, you can watch Bond in action in the official trailer of the movie released on Youtube.
