Bond 25: Cast of Daniel Craig’s final James Bond outing revealed

Naomie Harris has promised there are some “massive twists” in store in the forthcoming James Bond film No Time to Die, which will make Daniel Craig‘s fifth and final outing as 007.

Craig’s tenure as the iconic spy has involved storylines that interconnect from one film to the next, and this will apparently continue with the next instalment, with several familiar faces already announced to return.

This includes Harris as Eve Moneypenny, who was introduced in Skyfall, along with Ralph Fiennes as the newly appointed “M”, and Jeffrey Wright who played CIA agent Felix Leiter in 2008’s Quantum of Solace.

Speaking to GQ, Harris said she had found the No Time to Die script “fantastic” and difficult to put down.

“It’s a tie-up of Skyfall and Spectre,” she said. “But with massive, massive surprises that even had me like, ‘Oh wow.’ So I think we’re really going to shock people.”

The script for No Time to Die was overhauled by Fleabag creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge after director Danny Boyle stepped down. Producers are reportedly so thrilled with the result of Waller-Bridge’s efforts that they’re attempting to lure her back for the following movie.

No Time to Die is scheduled for release on 3 April 2020 in the UK and 8 April 2020 in the US.
