Directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga, '007: No Time to Die', is the exciting new adventure of cinema's greatest secret agent featuring a new villain - Lyutsifer Safin - played by Rami Malek (Oscar for Best Actor in 'Bohemian Rhapsody' ). Safin seeks revenge and is the feared adversary of James Bond in this new mission. Rami Malek's goal in building the character was to show someone disturbing but who sees himself as a hero. For the director, ‘what Safin does and is willing to do makes him a scary character’.
The cast also includes Cuban actress Ana de Armas (Blade Runner - 2017), Léa Seydoux ('007 Specter'), Lashana Lynch (Captain Marvel - 2019), Ralph Fiennes in the role of 'M' and also, Ben Whishaw, Naomie Harris, Jeffrey Wright or Christoph Waltz, who returns to the Blofeld character from '007 Specter'.
The film's soundtrack, with music by Hans Zimmer, includes the original theme “No Time To Die” by five Grammy-winning artist Billie Eilish, written in partnership with her brother, musician FINNEAS. Eilish, 19, is officially the youngest artist to write and record a song for a Bond movie, and joins an incredible roster of singers, including Shirley Bassey, Madonna, Adele and Sam Smith, who have been chosen to have the honour of giving voice to the Bond theme.
