The next James Bond film – No Time To Die – may now be pushed back further to summer 2021, according to a new report.

It seems like a very different world when MGM and Universal suddenly announced that the release of the next James Bond film was going to be delayed from Easter to November 2020. Of course, as it turned out, they’d foreseen which way the world was going better than many world leaders.

However, a report at the excellent MI6-HQ James Bond unoffical but usually really very reliable website now suggests that a further delay is a real possibility. There’s a growing feeling that cinemas won’t be up and fully operational for many months yet around the world, and given the returns required to make a 007 profitable, a decision is coming as to whether No Time To Die will make its new November release date.

The site details how already $30m was spent on marketing for the film’s aborted April release. If the film is to come out in November, the greenlight needs to be given to a new three month marketing campaign shortly, and thus the prospect of a summer 2021 release for the film is “now under active consideration”.

Expect a decision to be made soon. But early signs are pointing towards a further delay for Mr Bond…
