James Bond movie No Time To Die is reportedly set to be delayed again over coronavirus, this time being pushed back until autumn this year.
According to Deadline, sources have said that the upcoming flick will no longer be released on April 2 as was planned.
The movie, set to star Daniel Craig on his final outing as the secret agent, was previously pushed back from its November 2020 release date.
Before then, it was delayed from April 2020 to November.
The highly-anticipated flick is set to star Daniel in his final movie as Bond, Knives Out star Ana De Armas, Lashana Lynch as she takes on the 007 role, and Rami Malek as the villainous Safin,
Ralph Fiennes is also starring as M, while Léa Seydoux will appear as Bond’s love interest, Madeleine Swann.
Meanwhile, speculation has been building about who’s set to play the next Bond after Daniel steps down this year.
Bookies currently favour the likes of Tom Hardy and James Norton, while Rege-Jean Page and Idris Elba are outsiders in the running.
Recently taking himself out of the running, George Clooney weighed in on the discussion and gave his pick.
Speaking on Mark Wright’s Heart Evening Show, George ruled himself out of the part, but suggested Idris should be the one to take over.
‘First of all because, I’ll be 60 this year so it’s a little late for the Bond thing,’ he told the host. ‘Second of all, Bond should be a Brit don’t you think? I mean properly. It just feels wrong.’
Stating that Idris ‘should be Bond’, the Ocean’s Eleven actor continued: ‘He’s elegant, I think he’d do a great job of it.
‘That’s who I would’ve cast, sure, absolutely but in general, no I don’t think I should be [me].
‘The closest thing I’ve ever done to any kind of hero like that was Batman and we saw how that turned out.’
