No Time to Die has once again been delayed.
In response to the continued COVID-19 pandemic, producers released a statement on Friday (October 2) confirming that the 25th James Bond movie is being removed from its November release date.
Now, Daniel Craig’s latest adventure as Agent 007 will be moved all the way until April 2, 2021 – which is Easter weekend next year.
A spokesperson for producers said in a statement: “MGM, Universal and Bond producers, Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, today announced the release of No Time to Die, the 25th film in the James Bond series, will be delayed until 2 April in order to be seen by a worldwide theatrical audience.
“We understand the delay will be disappointing to our fans but we now look forward to sharing No Time to Die next year.”
No Time to Die has been delayed multiple times since it was announced, with the film originally scheduled to premiere back in November 2019. It will now debut over a year and a half later than planned.
This delay was announced only a day after Billie Eilish unveiled the stylish music video for No Time to Die‘s theme song.
No Time to Die producer Barbara Broccoli also recently offered some surprising information about the film, confirming it will tie up loose ends from throughout the Craig era and beyond.
“There’s a few lines that are in the script that Bond fans will love from the books,” Broccoli confirmed on the James Bond podcast.
“And some wonderful locations that are described in the books. We always love… We consider this film to be a classic Bond film, but with a modern twist and it’s also vitally important because it is the fifth and final one that Daniel Craig is going to be doing.
“It’s a culmination of everything that his portrayal of the character has been through and it ties up all the storylines. It’s a pretty epic film, I have to say.”
No Time to Die, the 25th James Bond movie, has a new release date of April 2, 2021. All the previous Bond movies are available on DVD or Blu-ray.
