The 53-year-old first graced our screens as Bond in Casino Royale in 2006, but No Time To Die is to be his last portrayal of the secret agent, the man himself has confirmed.
Following the 25th installment of the legendary franchise, the actor will leave space for someone else to fill the shiny shoes of everyone’s favourite MI6 agent, confessing the realisation that ‘there are other things that are more important’ made him decide to bow out.
In the actor’s final Bond movie, the nearly 60-year-old franchise promises to deliver on action and thrill on a whole new level.
No Time To Die will show 007 living a blissful life beyond active service relaxing in Jamaica, that is until old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA shows up asking for help.
Ultimately, Bond is ‘recruited to rescue a kidnapped scientist’ as he ‘finds himself hot on the trail of a mysterious villain, Safin (Rami Malek) who’s armed with a dangerous new technology’.

The newly released trailer claims ‘nothing can prepare you for the epic conclusion’, and we can’t wait to be sitting on the edge of our seats when the movie hits theatres.
The upcoming action/adventure film also stars Léa Seydoux, Ben Whishaw, Lashana Lynch and Ana de Armas.
Directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga, the movie was scheduled for release in 2020 but was delayed due to the pandemic.
It will now have its world premiere at the Royal Albert Hall in London on September 28, followed by its theatrical release on September 30 in the United Kingdom and October 8 in the United States.
No Time To Die shows in theatres this September.
