Latest James Bond film delayed for third time due to coronavirus

The highly anticipated James Bond film “No Time to Die” has once again been delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

A tweet from the official 007 Twitter account revealed on Thursday night that the new release date for the film is now Oct. 8 of this year.

“No Time to Die,” which is said to be actor Daniel Craig’s final outing as the iconic spy, was originally scheduled for release in April 2020 and was then pushed back to November of last year as uncertainty around the pandemic swelled, according to The Associated Press.

Several Hollywood studios have struggled to adapt to the changing landscape of the industry during the pandemic, with many opting to delay production and moving to release films on streaming services as movie theaters across the country remain closed.

Following the news of a third delay for “No Time to Die,” Sony announced that it would be moving back many of its releases scheduled for this spring. “Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway” is now pushed back from April to June and “Ghostbusters: Afterlife” was delayed from June to November, the AP reported.

“No Time to Die” is directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga and also stars Rami Malek, Lashana Lynch and Ana de Armas.

Actor Tom Cruise went viral in December after unleashing on the “Mission: Impossible 7” crew for breaking COVID-19 rules on set in leaked audio. Multiple celebrities stood in solidarity with Cruise afterward, citing the challenges that the pandemic was causing for the industry as well as the necessity for precautions to aid in stopping the spread of the virus.
