In August of 2019, Eon stated that Daniel Craig’s final 007 films would be titled No Time to Die, not Shatterhand, after the alias of Blofeld from Ian Fleming’s 1964 novel You Only Live Twice. In either case, that’s either an iconic Bond movie title or an automated Bond title generator generated it.

Thanks to a video where Fukunaga talks about No Time to Die, some of the plot details have been clarified.  According to the filmmaker, “Rediscovering Bond for me as a writer and a director was crucial. He’s been retired for five years. So what has he become?”

“No Time to Die” is set five years after the events of Spectre,” says Fukunaga.  In addition, it sounds a little like Skyfall, with the filmmaker noting that the picture depicts Bond battling with the new world of espionage and the new norms it evolved while he was away from the Safin.

Lashana Lynch will play Nomi, a rookie MI6 agent who takes over the 007 codenames when Bond retires. A brief and typical internet outcry ensued when it was revealed that Lynch would be portraying legendary spy James Bond as a black woman, but Lynch’s role is a whole new character with a different name.

“Safin” is portrayed by Oscar-winner Malek.  According to the actor, his character is “a different kind of terrorist,” adding that he won’t be associated with any form of terrorist attack expressing an ideology or religion.

Some fans, however, believe that Safin may truly be Dr No, the evil. “There’s a rebirth of an Ian Fleming influence on this film,” Malek hinted to Esquire UK. Being that Fleming’s Dr No is an original Fleming creation, his return would be a “resurgence” of Fleming’
