We don’t know any plot details for No Time to Die, the next installment within the James Bond franchise, but one of the film’s stars has confirmed that the outing will definitely be full of things fans won’t see coming in an interview Naomie Harris gave for GQ.
“It’s a tie-up of Skyfall and Spectre. But with massive, massive surprises that even had me like, ‘Oh, wow!’ So I think we’re going to really shock people.”
“I would say that Bond’s reconnected with his heart. We’re definitely seeing a Bond who’s more in touch with his feelings and more open to falling in love. At the end of Spectre there are women Bond gives his career up for: there’s no more emotional attachment than that. It’s just about moving with the times and recognising that women can no longer be seen as eye candy.”
Harris also went on to recall how she read the script all in one go after producer Barbara Broccoli hand-delivered it to her in the hopes of avoiding plot points being leaked.
“It was the personal touch. There was no putting it down, no stopping for anything. It’s going to be fantastic.”
I like the idea of surprises but – I dunno – this seems like it will continue the PC-fying of Bond which is not something I support, because he’s losing many of the characteristics that make him Bond!
No Time to Die has a UK release date of April 3, 2020, and opens in the US on April 8, 2020.
