No Time To Die director Cary Joji Fukunaga talks about the delay

No Time To Die Empire Magazine exclusive
No Time To Die director Cary Joji Fukunaga talks exclusively to UK's Empire Magazine about the delay of the 25th James Bond film from EON Productions, and why he isn't changing anything now.

With around seven months between No Time To Die’s intended April arrival and its eventual upcoming November release date, that’s plenty of time to make extra adjustments and last-minute changes. But it sounds like director Cary Joji Fukunaga is resisting the temptation to tinker with the film.

“You could just fiddle and tweak and it doesn’t necessarily get better,” he says. “For all intents and purposes, we had finished the film. I had mentally finished the film. Mentally and emotionally.”

Read Empire’s full No Time To Die story – talking the emotional fallout await Bond when he finally does return – in the Big-Screen Preview issue, on sale Thursday 9 July.
