No Time to Die will be the British actor's final outing as 007, and in a new interview, it's been hinted that strands featured in films including Casino Royale (2006), Quantum of Solace (2008) and Skyfall (2012) will be addressed before he bows out.
Speaking on the forthcoming film's official podcast, Barbara Broccoli called it “a culmination of everything that his portrayal of the character has been through”.
“It ties up all the storylines,” she said, adding: “It's a pretty epic film, I have to say.”
This backs up previous comments made by filmmaker Cary Fukunaga, who reworked the film's script after taking over from original director, Danny Boyle.
“In terms of what I can bring to change the character, Bond is on a character arc that started with Casino Royale, and I will be carrying that on," he said.
“There will be changes, I am sure. As in any story, a character has to change in order [to have] a narrative.”
While the film will have a more direct link to previous movie Spectre (2017) due to the return of Blofeld (Christoph Waltz) and Madeleine Swann (Léa Seydoux), it seems No Time to Die will bring things full circle for Craig's Bond.
In the same podcast, Craig himself revealed the one request he made to Brocolli and producing partner Michael G Wilson before agreeing to sign on as the spy.
No time to Die has been delayed until 2 April 2021.
