Here’s what we know so far about Bond 25, the 25th film in the EON Productions franchise based on the novelist Ian Fleming.
We don’t have an official title for the 25th James Bond film, but we do know about major cast members, the filmmakers, and the start date for principal photography. Here’s what we know so far.
Bond has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica. His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter 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.
Bond 25 is produced by Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli under Albert R. Broccoli’s EON Productions and Metro Goldwyn Mayer Studios.
The 25th Bond film is being directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga (Sin Nombre, Beasts of No Nation).
Bond 25 stars Daniel Craig as Ian Fleming’s James Bond. It will be his fifth time playing the role of 007. Returning cast members include Ralph Fiennes (M), Naomie Harris (Eve Moneypenny), Rory Kinnear (Tanner), Léa Seydoux (Madeleine Swann), Ben Whishaw (Q) and Jeffrey Wright (Felix Leiter). Bond 25 will introduce Ana de Armas (Paloma), Dali Benssalah, David Dencik, Lashana Lynch, Billy Magnussen and Rami Malek as the story’s villain.
Bond 25 is being written by Neal Purvis, Robert Wade, Scott Z. Burns, and Cary Joji Fukunaga, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge.
Bond 25 will be based at Pinewood Studios in the UK, and on location in Italy, Jamaica, London, and Norway.
MGM will premiere Bond 25 through United Artists on April 8, 2020, and through Universal Pictures International and MGM in the UK and internationally starting April 3, 2020.
