The Next James Bond Will Be The Most Expensive Film Of The 007 Saga
With a nice budget of $250 million.
Now that the shooting is finished, and while we only have six months to wait before we can see it (!) a few pieces of information are starting to come out on No Time to Die, the new and last James Bond for Daniel Craig.
In addition to the crazy casting - with the usual Daniel Craig, Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw, Jeffrey Wright and even Léa Seydoux, and the newcomers including Rami Malek, Ana De Armas and Lashana Lynch - and a shooting in Jamaica, we learn that Cary Fukunaga's film would be the most expensive of the franchise.
Indeed, in this long (and very interesting) paper from the Hollywood Reporter on the James Bond Girls news, the media informs us that the film would have cost $250 million. A sum that would be no less than the largest ever spent on a James Bond, just ahead of Spectre (which cost 245 million dollars).
Since Craig joined the game, prices have skyrocketed. Casino Royale cost 150 million, while Quantum of Solace and Skyfall each had a budget of 200 million. But well, given the box office success of the latter (Skyfall had even exceeded $1 billion in revenue), it goes hand in hand. And then, it's still the price of big blockbusters these days - poke Avengers: Endgame, which cost $356 million.
With a release at six months, it will be necessary to expect in the next few weeks to see a first trailer, accompanied by a semblance of synopsis. And it would be a nice euphemism to say that we are looking forward to seeing Daniel Craig's latest adventure in 007. The combo Cary Joji Fukunaga for the direction and Phoebe Waller-Bridge for the script have a lot to do with it.
Noe Time To Die is due to be released on April 8, 2020.
