“You’ve all done the most amazing job,” he continued. “I could not be more proud to work with every single one of you on this production. I would like to thank you for this evening, I want to thank you for this – Barbara [Broccoli, producer], for putting it on. Thank goodness we did this tonight.”
Today (October 26), it’s been announced that filming for No Time To Die has now finished.
A tweet posted from the official James Bond account said: “That’s a wrap on #NoTimeToDie. See you in cinemas April 2020. #Bond25.” The caption was posted alongside a photo of director Cary Joji Fukunaga and Craig.

The first poster for the new movie was unveiled on the 57th anniversary of the James Bond franchise.
In a live event held in April, producer Barbara Broccoli said No Time To Die would begin with Bond not on active service and “enjoying himself” in his “spiritual home”. The cast for the film was also confirmed at the time, including Ralph Fiennes, Rory Kinnear, Ben Whishaw, Naomie Harris, Léa Seydoux, and Rami Malek.
According to reports, a new 007 will be introduced in the upcoming movie. Captain Marvel star Lashana Lynch was recently rumoured as Craig’s replacement.
