The title was revealed Tuesday for the eagerly anticipated James Bond movie that we’ve been calling “Bond 25” as we’ve tracked various problems during the film’s production. MGM revealed that the movie will be called “No Time to Die.”

“In ‘No Time to Die,’ Bond has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica,” MGM says in a promotional blurb released today. “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.”

The film is due to be released in the U.S. on April 8, 2020.

The title “No Time to Die” has been used a number of times in the past, including as one of the titles of a 1958 movie directed by Terence Young, which is also known as “Tank Force.” Young later directed the early Bond movies “Dr. No” (1962), “From Russia With Love” (1963) and “Thunderball” (1965).
