Fukunaga says NTTD is done, won’t be tweaked

Cary Joji Fukunaga

The director of No Time to Die, in an exchange that’s part of an Instagram post, says the 25th James Bond movie is done, with no further tweaking.

“(W)e had to put our pencils down when we finished our post production window which was thankfully before COVID shut everything else down,” Fukunaga wrote.

He made a separate response to another question of why not use the delay in the movie’s release date to do polishing.

“(S)hort answer is money,” the director said. “And although Bond is a big movie, we still have to weigh cost with value.” Fukunaga added the movie “is great as it is.”

The exchanges were spotted by @antonvolk, who included it in a tweet.

In early March, No Time to Die’s release date was moved to November from April. Since then, movies have been delayed as the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) caused movie theaters to close and many businesses to be shut down.

Some YouTube channels suggested the real reason was the movie needed reshoots. However, since the early March announcement, production of movies and many TV shows has been shut down because of COVID-19.
