The James Bond franchise closes out its current Daniel Craig-led chapter with Cary Joji Fukunaga’s “No Time to Die” which will mark Craig’s fifth and final performance as the MI6 agent.
Now a new report in British tabloid The Mirror says that Eon Productions will film three different endings for the project in an effort to ensure secrecy and that only Fukunaga knows the true ending that will appear with even Craig himself being kept in the dark.
Multiple endings shot for films is hardly new, but rarely happens for Bond films. The paper also reports that one scene filmed last week involved people being gassed on a dance floor.
In the new film, Bond is living a tranquil retirement life in Jamaica – one that’s interrupted when US agent Felix Leiter shows up and asks for help to rescue a kidnapped scientist which puts Bond on the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology.
Along with Craig, the film sees the return of Ralph Fiennes as M, Lea Seydoux as Dr. Madeleine Swann, Naomie Harris as Moneypenny, Ben Whishaw as Q, Rory Kinnear as Tanner, Jeffrey Wright as Felix and Christoph Waltz rumored to be returning as Blofeld.
Dali Benssalah, Billy Magnussen, Ana De Arma, David Dencik and Lashana Lynch also star while Rami Malek serves as the villain. “No Time to Die” opens everywhere April 2020.
