“A lot of people here have worked on five pictures with me,” Craig remarks to Wilson and Broccoli in the film. “I’ve loved every single second of these movies, and especially this one because I’ve got up every morning and I’ve had the chance to work with you guys, and that has been one of the greatest honors of my life.”
“Daniel has just taken this, the character, the series, the whole thing, to a place that is so…extraordinary. And so emotionally satisfying,” Broccoli says.
“It’s also emotionally tough being Daniel’s last one. It’s tough on Barbara, it’s tough on me,” adds Wilson.
No Time To Die is the 25th entry in the James Bond franchise and is directed by Cary Joi Fukunaga. In the film, set five years after the capture of Ernst Stavro Blofeld (Christoph Waltz), James Bond has left active service. He is approached by friend and CIA officer Felix Leiter (Jeffrey Wright), who enlists his help in the search of Valdo Obruchev (David Dencik), a missing scientist. When it becomes apparent that Obruchev has been abducted, Bond must confront a villain whose schemes could see the death of millions. The film also stars Ben Whishaw, Naomie Harris, Ralph Fiennes, Rami Malek, Lashana Lynch, Ana de Armas, Billy Magnussen, and Lea Seydoux.
