Last week we shared a slick behind the scenes video for True Detective and Beasts of No Nation director Cary Fukunaga's upcoming James Bond 25. And if that somehow wasn't enough for you, today we have your first official look at Daniel Craig as James Bond and his classic Aston Martin ride. This photo was provided by the official James Bond account over on Twitter where they tweeted this.
"007 star Daniel Craig, director Cary Fukunaga, and the Bond 25 crew were out in the sunshine today shooting across a number of London locations, including Whitehall, where Daniel filmed a scene with a classic Aston Martin V8, first seen in a Bond film in The Living Daylights."
While not much is known about the pilot of the upcoming Bond 25, the official James Bond website did give us a few details. It turns out that when this new flick kicks off, Bond is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica having left active service. But as you might imagine, his peace is short-lived when Jeffery Wright's CIA agent, Felix Leiter turns up asking for help to rescue a kidnapped scientist. Being a James Bond movie, things turn out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology.
This still untitled 25th entry in the 007 series will see the return of Daniel Craig as agent 007, James Bond, marking the fifth time Craig has played the role. Other Craig/Bond movies include Martin Campbell's Casino Royale with Eva Green and Mads Mikkelsen, Marc Forster's Quantum of Solace with Olga Kurylenko, Mathieu Amalric, and Gemma Arterton, and Sam Mendes' one-two punch of Skyfall and Spectre with Javier Bardem and Christoph Waltz.
Craig will be joined in this new Bond motion picture by Rami Malek (Mr Robot, Bohemian Rhapsody) as the movie's villain, Ralph Fiennes (The Grand Budapest Hotel, The Constant Gardener) as M, and Naomie Harris (28 Days Later, Collateral Beauty) as Eve Moneypenny. Rory Kinnear (The Imitation Game, Penny Dreadful) joins them as Bill Tanner, along with Léa Seydoux (Blue Is the Warmest Color, Midnight in Paris) as Dr. Madeleine Swann, and Ben Whishaw (Cloud Atlas, Mary Poppins Returns) as Q.
On top of that, Jeffrey Wright (Broken Flowers, The Manchurian Candidate) returns as Felix Leiter, and is joined by Ana de Armas (War Dogs, Blade Runner 2049) as Paloma, Lashana Lynch (Bulletproof, Brotherhood) as Nomi, and David Dencik (Top of the Lake, Chernobyl) as Waldo. And finally, (Into the Woods and Game Night) star Billy Magnussen and Dali Benssalah have been cast in undisclosed roles.
Cary Joji Fukunaga directs Bond 25 from a screenplay written by Neal Purvis, Robert Wade, Scott Z. Burns, Fukunaga, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge. Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli are once again producing this new Bond adventure based on the famous secret agent man created by Ian Fleming. Linus Sandgren will be handling the movie's cinematography, and Tom Cross and Elliot Graham will be editing it all together. Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, Universal Pictures, and Eon Productions are behind the film which will be unleashed into a theater near you by United Artists Releasing here in the U.S. on April 8, 2020, and worldwide by Universal Pictures on April 3, 2020. This first look still comes to us via James Bond over on Twitter.
