James Bond 25’s release date has been pushed back by two months and is now expected to be released on 8th April 2020. The news was confirmed by the James Bond franchise’s official Twitter account, with a tweet that read: “The release date for Bond 25 has changed. Producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli: “We are absolutely thrilled to be releasing Bond 25 on 8 April 2020.”

It’s been a rocky start to the franchise’s 25th output, and it’s not the first time the release date has been pushed back. Director Danny Boyle left the project over creative differences last year, which meant the slated November 2019 release date was set to be delayed. When the film’s new director, Cary Joji Fukunaga, took over, it was announced the new Bond film would begin filming at Pinewood studios this March before being released to the world on February 14, 2020. But the date has now been pushed back two months.

Daniel Craig, who has starred in the last four bond films, is set to star once again in the next release. However, it’s currently unknown as to whether he’ll carry on as 007 following Bond 25

Speculation as to who would take over the role should Craig exit has been building steadily – with Idris Elba, Tom Hiddleston, Richard Madden and Tom Hardy all touted as potential replacements. Last month, Idris Elba teased fans speculating over the rumours he could take up the Bond role with a cheeky selfie with Daniel Craig at the Golden Globes. While Bohemian Rhapsody’s Rami Malek has teased he could be the next Bond villain. (via NME)
