Yesterday, the official Twitter account for Bond franchise tweeted out a set photo of No Time To Die director Cary Fukunaga alongside star Daniel Craig to celebrate the completion of the production.
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.

The next big thing will be the kick-off to the marketing campaign and our first look at a trailer for the film.
With Bond retired, Lashana Lynch character Nomi has taken over the 007 codename.
Spectre’s Christoph Waltz is also coming back as the notorious Blofeld.
The rest of the cast will include Lea Seydoux, Rami Malek (Mr. Robot, The Pacific, Bohemian Rapsody), Jeffrey Wright (Westworld), Ralph Fiennes (The King’s Man), Naomie Harris, Lashana Lynch (Captain Marvel), Ana de Armas (Blade Runner 2049), Ben Whishaw, Billy Magnussen, Rory Kinnear, David Dencik, and Dali Benssalah.
Bond 25 is said to be the end of Daniel Craig’s tenure as James Bond and a new actor will be taking over the part for Bond 26 (script rumored to be in the works from Phoebe Waller-Bridge).
Sometimes, supporting actors from the franchise carry over between Bonds. This could mean that folks like Naomie Harris (Moneypenny), Ben Whishaw (Q), Jeffrey Wright (CIA Agent Felix Leiter), and Ralph Fiennes (new M) might return for Bond 26 without Daniel Craig.
The best legacy example would be actor Desmond Llewelyn playing Q for 17 installments.
A more recent example would be Judi Dench being in the role of M for both Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig eras.
Franchise actress Naomie Harris recently revealed that Moonlight’s Barry Jenkins met with Bond producers about making a Moneypenny spinoff.
No Time To Die will be released on April 8th, 2020 in North America.
