The upcoming James Bond film will be called No Time To Die, it has been announced.
Daniel Craig will star in 007’s 25th outing which will be released in the UK on 3 April 2020.
Oscar-winner Rami Malek has been confirmed to play the villain in the film, with Fleabag writer Phoebe Waller-Bridge due to add a bit of comedy magic to the script.
Other new cast members include Captain Marvel star Lashana Lynch and Game Night actor Billy Magnussen, while Ralph Fiennes, Ben Whishaw, Rory Kinnear, Naomie Harris and Jeffrey Wright have all been confirmed to reprise their roles.
The title of the film has been confirmed after rumours it might be called Shatterhand sparked ridicule on social media.
The movie’s producer Barbara Broccoli hinted it was not the final title when she autographed a logo designed by a 007 fan.
Above the Shatterhand logo, she wrote: “It’s not.”
True Detective director Cary Joji Fukunaga is at the helm in the latest film after the departure of Danny Boyle last year.
The British director quit the film “due to creative differences” in August 2018.
Craig previously stated he would rather “slash my wrists” than return to the role of Bond, but later said he made the remarks two days after he had finished shooting Spectre – and was exhausted.
Idris Elba had been rumoured to replace Daniel Craig after it was reported Brocolli had said it was now “time” for a black actor to take the role.
Elba sent the rumour-mill into overdrive last year when he posted a cryptic tweet which read: “My name’s Elba, Idris Elba.”
