According to Deadline, delayed James Bond sequel No Time To Die could be about to move once again with reports that the movie is shifting from its rescheduled date of April 2 to an unspecified new slot sometime in the winter. Nothing has been confirmed (yet), MGM/Eon will likely see how the next couple of weeks goes with efforts to combat the pandemic before making a decision. That said, these are unprecedented times we live in; such choices could be made much sooner.
Had the world not turned into an immersive episode of Black Mirror, we would likely know the identity of the person taking over the role of James Bond. Daniel Craig is exiting the role after more than a decade playing the world's best known secret agent, a turn of phrase that would surely be an unwelcome title for an undercover operative. I mean, Bond rarely uses an alias he just tells everybody he full name as soon as he meets them. Getting back to the point at hand, amongst all the usual names like James Norton and Tom Hardy, Bridgerton star Regé-Jean Page has also emerged as a possible candidate for the role.
Should No Time To Die be delayed again, it will join Sony's Morbius as another high-profile movie of 2020 being pushed towards the end of 2021. Naturally, this had led to a renewed debate on how Marvel plans on releasing both Black Widow and Eternals, Kevin Feige remains optimistic over a theatrical launch, but at this stage, it is impossible to be sure of anything. Directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga, No Time To Die also stars Léa Seydoux, Ben Whishaw, Naomie Harris, Jeffrey Wright, Christoph Waltz, Rory Kinnear, Ana de Armas, Ralph Fiennes, and Rami Malek.
