The 25th James Bond movie, No Time To Die, has seemingly crossed a significant production milestone. Video has emerged of what appears to be a wrap party of sorts for the film where 007 actor Daniel Craig can be seen and heard speaking about his experience on the film.
“I’m really quite drunk. This has been one of the best, most wonderful experiences I’ve ever had. You’ve all done the most amazing job. I could not be more proud to work with every single one of you on this production,” Craig said.

Some people are speculating that this wrap party, which was apparently held in Matera Italy and put on by James Bond series producer Barbara Broccoli, is celebrating the end of location filming/principal photography for No Time To Die.
No Time To Die hits theatres in April 2020.
It is expected that it will be the final James Bond movie starring Daniel Craig in the lead role. As it happens, it’s rumoured that Captain Marvel actress Lashana Lynch is taking over the 007 title from Craig.
No Time To Die picks up with Craig’s James Bond out of active service and living a peaceful life in Jamaica. Obviously, it doesn’t stay this way. “His old friend Felix Leiter (Jeffrey Wright) from the CIA turns up asking for help. The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology,” reads a line from the movie’s description.
No Time To Die is directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga, who is best known for the first season of True Detective and the acclaimed drama Beasts of No Nation. Ralph Fiennes, Ben Whishaw, Naomie Harris, and Léa Seydoux all return to the roles of M, Q, Miss MoneyPenny, and Madeleine Swan respectively. The new cast members include Rami Malek in a villainous role, plus Billy Magnussen and Ana de Armas. Check out some on-set footage here.
Fleabag creator and star Phoebe Waller-Bridge was hired to add humour to the No Time To Die script.
