WARNING: POTENTIAL SPOILERS AHEAD FOR NO TIME TO DIE. The 51-year-old James Bond star is currently in Matera, Italy shooting his final 007 outing, No Time To Die. Joined by Madeleine Swann actress Léa Seydoux and director Cary Fukunaga, the team have allegedly been shooting the movie’s pre-titles car chase. Daniel Craig was spotted yesterday covered in fake blood, having removed the jacket of his linen suit.
The last Bond movie ended with 007 and Swann driving off in the Aston Martin DB5 featured in No Time To Die’s car chase, so presumably, Matera is where they went – maybe to get hitched and have a honeymoon?
If it’s Lucia that Bond makes contact with in Italy, clearly there’s going to be a SPECTRE organisation link even if Blofeld is behind bars.
In fact, while Rami Malek is the main villain in No Time To Die, Christoph Waltz is returning as Bond’s arch-nemesis in the movie.
The Bond villain was last seen being arrested on Westminster Bridge at the conclusion of Spectre.
Allegedly, in a scene similar to The Silence of the Lambs, the purpose of this prison meeting in No Time to Die is to “mine him for information about Malek’s sadistic character.”
The outlet added: “I don’t really expect for Waltz to have as significant a role as last time, he’ll likely take a back seat to the focus on Malek.”
Considering that Blofeld is Bond’s arch-nemesis in the franchise, perhaps Malek is some sort of pawn or puppet.
While, the real question remains whether Craig’s Bond will die, even if he thinks he has no time to.
No Time To Die will be released in UK cinemas on April 3, 2020.
