Just a little over a month left before the next James Bond title drops, MGM has now released a behind-the-scenes look at the production of No Time to Die, with a director’s commentary from Cary Joji Fukunaga.
Set five years after the super spy’s retirement, with Daniel Craig reprising the role one last time, Fukunaga said his goal was to rediscover who 007 is and what’s important to him now. “He’s sort of a wounded animal struggling with his role as a double 0,” says Fukunaga. “The world’s changed, the rules of engagement aren’t what they used to be, the rules of espionage darker in this era of asymmetric warfare. The people close to Bond, those he considers to be family, are at great risk, and now there’s someone new out there, more dangerous than anyone he’s ever encountered. And whoever they are is smarter and stronger than SPECTRE.”
