Between director shake-ups, on-set accidents, rewrites and rumours of discontent, it’s fair ot say that Bond 25 hasn’t had the smoothest of rides, but the official Instagram account for the franchise has announced that production has officially wrapped on Daniel Craig’s fifth – and expected to be final – outing as 007 in No Time To Die. The news came via a set photo featuring Craig alongside director Cary Fukunaga, while we also got another look at Bond himself thanks to the image above.
Meanwhile, the news follows a recent report from the Daily Mirror which claims that Fukunaga and Eon Productions have shot three different endings for the movie in an effort to preserve secrecy, and that even Daniel Craig himself is being kept in the dark about which one they’ll ultimately be going with.
