In recent months, a steady stream of rumors and bite-sized developments have kept the James Bond franchise—which is approaching its 25th iteration—in the news. And now, duh-nuh-nuh-nuh...nuh-nuh-nuuuuh, duuuuh-nuuuuh, du-nuh-nuuuh—we have an official title for the next film: No Time to Die.
Is there a good time to die? Unclear! All that's known to date about this flick, which is dropping in April 2020, is that Rami Malek (GQ's September cover star) is playing a Bond villain, it's probably Daniel Craig's last hurrah as James Bond, and a new 007—actress Lashana Lynch—is probably entering the fold. There's also this, from the YouTube title reveal synopsis:
In NO TIME TO DIE, Bond has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica. His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for help. The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology.
I too hate when I am enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica and my old friend from the CIA shows up asking for help.
Watch the official title reveal below.
It’s been 15 years since Pierce Brosnan’s final outing as 007 brought us glacier-surfing and an invisible car.
Rami Malek was an acclaimed journeyman actor known for his hustle, preparation, and intensity. Then he played Freddie Mercury, won an Oscar, and became world-famous practically all at once. Now Malek is working through his newest role—as a global star.
