No Time to Die was initially expected to release in November 2019 but that date was pushed back to 2020 after Danny Boyle pulled out as director and was replaced by Cary Joji Fukunaga.
According to a twitter post on the official 007 account, "Daniel Craig returns as James Bond, 007 in NO TIME TO DIE. Out in the UK on 3 April 2020 and 8 April 2020 in the US."
The producers of the film revealed that that the film would see Bond enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica after leaving active service before an old friend, Felix Leiter, from the CIA turns up asking for help.
Bond embarks on a mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist, which puts him on the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology, they added.
Previously, it was announced that Rami Malek will be playing the villain in the upcoming movie when filming began in Jamaica.
The film is also being shot in London, Italy and Norway and actors reprising their roles will include Ralph Fiennes as M, Naomie Harris as Moneypenny and Ben Whishaw as Q.
The Bond franchise is one of the most profiting ones worldwide. While 2015’s Spectre made $880 million at the box office worldwide, Skyfall grossed more than $1 billion globally in 2012.--REUTERS
