While No Time to Die has suffered numerous delays due to the global health crisis, that hasn’t stopped anticipation for the film.
Rami Malek, who stars in the movie as the villain Safin, has been talking to GQ about his character, particularly if Safin is actually an updated version of the classic Bond villain Dr. No.
Here’s what Malek said: “That’s interesting. I’m not going to bite on that, but I do think it’s interesting. They’ll just have to wait and see. Let the rumours fly, because no matter what you expect from this movie, you will be shocked when you watch the film. I will not add any fuel to that fire.”

Whether or not Malek is playing a new version of Dr. No or not, Malek’s comments about the film shocking audiences jumps out. Who knows what he could be referring to but hopefully, whatever happens, the movie will be a fitting send-off to Daniel Craig’s time as 007.
Bond has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica. His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for help. The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology.
No Time To Die stars Daniel Craig (James Bond), Ralph Fiennes (M), Naomie Harris (Moneypenny), Rory Kinnear (Tanner), Léa Seydoux (Madeleine Swann), Ben Whishaw (Q), Jeffrey Wright (Felix Leiter) and Christoph Waltz (Blofeld), while new additions include Rami Malek (Bohemian Rhapsody), Ana de Armas (Blade Runner 2049), Lashana Lynch (Captain Marvel), Billy Magnussen (Velvet Buzzsaw), Dali Benssalah (A Faithful Man) and David Dencik (Top of the Lake).
