After James Bond fans called for producers to postpone forthcoming 007 film No Time to Die in light of concerns over the spread of coronavirus, MGM and Universal announced Wednesday that the movie will indeed be pushed to November.

The news was shared to the spy series’ Twitter account. “MGM, Universal and Bond producers, Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, announced today that after careful consideration and thorough evaluation of the global theatrical marketplace, the release of NO TIME TO DIE will be postponed until November 2020,” the announcement reads.

The film had already been delayed three times before this latest postponement. It was slated to be released in April, but as the letter sent from Bond fans noted, “With a month to go before No Time to Die opens worldwide, community spread of the virus is likely to be peaking in the United States. There is a significant chance that cinemas will be closed, or their attendance severely reduced, by early April.”

So it looks as though fans will have plenty more time to (hopefully not) die of coronavirus before the new Bond flick finally hits the big screen this fall.
