No Time To Die director Cary Fukunaga has confirmed that Daniel Craig’s final James Bond movie is finished.
Daniel Craig’s No Time To Die was originally set to open this month but in the wake of the global coronavirus pandemic, the producers behind the movie decided it was best to delay the James Bond flick. In fact, the Daniel Craig film was the first Hollywood blockbuster to delay its release date, with the producers deciding to push it back to November 2020. Since then, every major Hollywood film has pushed back its release date or has been delayed indefinitely as the pandemic is causing theatres to shutter.
While Daniel Craig’s No Time To Die got a head start in securing a November release date, it doesn’t mean that the James Bond project will have more work done on it. When asked by a fan on Instagram if the release date switch will allow him to work on the film some more, No Time To Die director Cary Fukunaga said that the post production window on the James Bond film has closed. The James Bond director’s comments on Instagram were posted on Twitter, and you can check them out below.

The James Bond director made it exceptionally clear that the Daniel Craig film was done and wouldn’t be worked on any longer because it had already met its deadlines. It makes obvious sense that the James Bond project is ready to go considering it was supposed to open this weekend in its native country, Britain. While money may be a constraint when it comes to further working on No Time To Die, the James Bond director seems confident that Daniel Craig’s final outing as the famed spy is perfect just the way it is.
