An official synopsis for the movie dropped this past April, revealing what Daniel Craig’s James Bond has been up to since the closing moments of Spectre. You can check it out below.
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.
Daniel Craig made his debut as 007 in 2006’s Casino Royale and then reprised the role in three more movies — Quantum of Solace, Skyfall and Spectre. Bond 25 will mark his final outing as the iconic spy. Neal Purvis, Robert Wade, Scott Z. Burns, Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Fukunaga worked on the Bond 25 script.
Filming is currently underway at Pinewood Studios in the United Kingdom. Additional filming locations include London, Jamaica, Italy, and Norway.
The cast of James Bond 25 includes Daniel Craig, Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw, Lea Seydoux, Rory Kinnear, Jeffrey Wright, as well as franchise newcomers Rami Malek, Ana de Armas, Lashana Lynch, Billy Magnussen, David Dencik and Dali Benssalah.
James Bond 25 is scheduled to be released in theaters on April 8, 2020. Stay tuned for more updates on the project.
