No reshoots for No Time to Die

No Time to Die is finished and has been locked away until November.

Back at the beginning of March a rumour started after the seven month delay for No Time to Die was announced.

According to the rumour, the real reason the film had been pushed back had nothing to do with the covid-19 pandemic. Instead filmmakers had decided on reshooting various scenes after audience responses to test screenings.

While the rumour always seemed unlikely – a large part of the world is currently in lockdown because of the novel coronavirus – Baz Bamigboye has said in an article for the Daily Mail that the film is finished and locked away ready for its release in November.

While the Mail can hardly be considered a reliable source of anything – toilet paper, anyone? – Bamigboye has consistently been proven right when it comes to matters of Bond over the years.

Like everyone else in the world it sounds like Eon Productions and partners have battened down the hatches and will simply wait this thing out.

And anyway, with much of the world locked down, how could they possibly reshoot scenes anyway?
