No Time To Die’s Director Is ‘Mentally And Emotionally’ Done With Daniel Craig’s Bond Film

No Time To Die Trailer Super Bowl

No Time To Die’s director Cary Joji Fukanaga has revealed that he is “mentally and emotionally done with his Daniel Craig James Bond movie.

This upcoming Bond movie just has to be good.

It’s been well-reported that the movie had a troubled production.

There were injuries, director changes, script changes, reshoots…

Basically, everything and anything you can imagine going wrong whilst filming No Time To Die went wrong.

However, then the Coronavirus pandemic hit and they decided to push the film’s release date back to November 2020.

This means that director Fukanaga has had quite a bit of extra time to make sure the film is as good as it possibly can be.

Yet, even though the film isn’t scheduled for release until November, Fukanaga revealed during an interview with Empire Magazine that he’s done with the film.

Here’s what he had to say about his Daniel Craig Bond film, No Time To Die:

I don’t think anyone could have foreseen how the world came to a complete standstill, but I did think audiences would not be going to cinemas. You could just fiddle and tweak and it doesn’t necessarily get better. For all intents and purposes, we had finished the film. I had mentally finished the film. Mentally and emotionally.

So, even though he had extra time thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic to work on the movie, he’d already basically finished it.

There’s only so much tweaking you can do.

After a while, it just ends up becoming meddling.
