“No Mr Bond, I expect you to delay.”
Daniel Craig’s No Time To Die will reportedly get pushed back once again as executives look to reshuffle this year’s spring and summer dates.
MGM is reportedly considering to delay Daniel Craig’s No Time To Die yet again. At the beginning of 2020, the studio decided to push the James Bond film from its April slot as theaters across the world closed their doors a result of the ongoing pandemic. But now that we’re edging closer to No Time To Die‘s April 2021 date, executives are apparently contemplating moving the film to October, November or December.
Executives are feeling “demoralized” (as The Hollywood Reporter put it) by the potential changes, with one veteran executive telling the outlet that they think every major release from now up to Tom Cruise’s Top Gun: Maverick will be delayed as the pandemic continues to cause havoc. If the Daniel Craig film does move again, it’ll be interesting to see how this affects other studios like Warner Bros., Disney and Paramount.
“I think everything substantive between now and Top Gun: Maverick in early July will move. It’s a mess,”
What do you make of the potential delay for No Time To Die? Should MGM release the Daniel Craig film to streaming at this point? Sound-off in the comments below!
