No Time to Die The producers had to convince studio managers to kill James Bond

No time to die, the 25th film in the James Bond series, did the unthinkable by killing the iconic character. Daniel Craig’s last outing in 007 ended with Bond sacrificing himself to save anyone else, the first time in the franchise that any iteration of the character has died. The series will continue with a new actor in the role and a new direction for the story, but fans don’t lose sight of how important that ending is. The producers had to work to convince the studio to allow it.

Longtime Bond producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael J. Wilson spoke recently empire Around No time to die He touched on the decision to kill Craig’s 007.

“When Daniel took a break, I told him, ‘That’s not the end of the story,’” Broccoli said. You can’t come out that way.” “It’s a great starting place to see Bond retire and how will he deal with it? Let’s think about it.” He agreed, and Michael and I started with the book, figuring out where we were going. We were in that void.

“Of course we had to convince the studio,” Wilson added with a laugh. “You can imagine their reaction!”

Broccoli went on to explain why this ending is Craig Bond’s best score, at least from a story perspective after his previous films.

“We thought, ‘Okay, Bond now has what he’s always wanted, but dreaded, and that’s family. “Because once you have a family, you are not only risking your life, you are affecting the lives of others,” Broccoli said. “It was always Bond’s big nightmare to be on the other side of the villain and to say, ‘If you don’t do what I want I will kill your loved ones.’”

“It was unbelievable in No time to die The premiere is with 4,000 people and you can hear all the people, their breath and their heartbeat and they’ll go, ‘It doesn’t happen…’ and it happens,” she added.

Now, it will be looking for the next Bond actor and a new direction for the entire franchise.
