Bond 25 finally gets a title: No Time to Die
As anyone who has been keeping an eye on developments around the next James Bond film will no doubt be aware, the 25th film in the James Bond franchise has endured a difficult journey towards the screen so far, with numerous setbacks reported since the film was announced, from injuries on set to the arrival – and almost immediate departure – of former Bond star Grace Jones.
Even the film's title seems to have suffered from a couple of false starts, with rumours of projected titles such as Shatterhand surfacing and then quickly refuted by Eon Productions, who develop the Bond films under the stewardship of Barbara Broccoli.
However, it appears that Bond 25 now has an official title after an announcement on the official James Bond Twitter account: No Time to Die.
Cary Fukunaga is directing the 25th movie in the Bond franchise, which will see Daniel Craig return to reprise the role for what is expected to be the final time. There have already been reports about some bold choices made for the new film, including the proposition that his famous '007' number handed to another agent played by British actress Lashana Lynch, with Bond retiring from active service.
However, Bond is unlikely to be enjoying his retirement as a visit from his old friend, CIA operative Felix Leiter, sees him dragged into a confrontation with a new villain and a dangerous new weapon.
No Time to Die is due to make its debut in cinemas next year, arriving on UK screens on April 3rd.
