No Time to Die will mark the milestone 25th film in the legendary James Bond series, and one of the movie's main stars claims that we'll be taken by surprise in the latest 007 installment.
Naomie Harris - who will portray Eve Moneypenny for the third time - said in an interview with GQ that fans will be taken away by the many surprises in No Time to Die, which also marks Daniel Craig's final performance as 007.
"It’s a tie-up of Skyfall and Spectre," Harris said. "But with massive, massive surprises that even had me like, ‘Oh, wow!’ So I think we’re going to really shock people."
There have been rumors that Bond will pass on the 007 role to a female in No Time to Die. Pierce Brosnan - who portrayed Bond in GoldenEye, Tomorrow Never Dies, The World Is Not Enough and Die Another Day - believes that a woman should be cast as the next Bond.
Ben Whishaw, who portrays Q, also likes the idea of a female taking over as 007, saying that it "could be amazing." The likes of Tom Hardy and Idris Elba have also been rumored to be the next Bond actor. Sean Bean - who played the main villain (Alec Trevelyan) in Goldeneye - believes Richard Madden is suited for the Bond role.
Rami Malek, who played Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody, will play the main Bond villain on No Time to Die. Along with Craig, Harris and Whishaw, Léa Seydoux will reprise her role as Dr. Madeleine Swann as Bond's lover from Spectre. Rory Kinner (Bill Tanner), Ralph Fiennes (M) and Jeffrey Wright (Felix Leiter) are also set to reprise their roles for the Bond film.
Though Spectre earned mixed reviews from pundits and Bond fans, it scored $880.7 million at the box office. Not only that, but Sam Smith's Writing's on the Wall song for the film won Academy and Golden Globe awards.
