No Time to Die wraps filming after global shoot
Shooting started in Norway in early 2019 for Daniel Craig’s final outing as James Bond. The global production went on to visit Jamaica and Italy before wrapping in late October, 2019.
In late April, the stars of the film, director Cary Joji Fukunaga and producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson announced that Bond 25 will open in Jamaica which Broccoli described as Bond’s “spiritual home”. The franchise has shot on the island twice, but not since 1973’s Live and Let Die. The announcement also confirmed Remi Malek (Mr. Robot, Bohemian Rhapsody) would be taking on the role of Bond Villain.
The film went to shoot scenes in the Italian hilltop town of Matera as well as the Scottish Highlands.
Despite obstacles delaying production, including Craig suffering an ankle injury, and an on-set explosion which injured a crew member, the film is has stuck to a release date of 3 April 2020.
No Time To Die was based at Pinewood Studios, Buckinghamshire, the long-time home of the franchise where a Bond soundstage was built for the 1976 film The Spy Who Loved Me. In September, Disney announced a long-term deal with Pinewood's Buckinghamshire site that provides security over soundstage space for the next decade. Having hosted Bond films for over forty years, concerns were raised over the future of the franchise at the studio, but a group Pinewood spokesman commented “Eon have been a very important part of the Studios’ history and we will look after them”.
