It’s official: the new James Bond film is being delayed by six months.
The producers of the new James Bond film, Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, have bowed to pressure that had been building, and decided to delay the release of the next 007 movie. No Time To Die had been set for release this April, but concerns over the global spread of coronavirus have already lead to part of the movie’s promotion being cancelled.
Now, they’ve gone one step further: the movie’s entire release has been shifted to November 2020. Concerns had been spreading not just about the virus itself, but the impact it was having on cinema attendance. Hence, what’s pretty much an unprecedented move for a film on the his scale, in response to a public health concern.
The news was broken in the following Tweet…
