THE release of the latest James Bond film No Time To Die is set to be pushed back yet again due to Covid-19 concerns.
One problem is cases of the virus climbing in the US, as many fans of Bond, played by Daniel Craig, are over 40 and so more vulnerable.

An LA source said: “There are very secret discussions moving forward about what to do.
“Bond films are massive money spinners; people forget Daniel’s work on Skyfall and Spectre staved off potential bankruptcy for the MGM company with its profits.
“This is business. And business decisions have to be made.
“Simply put having No Time To Die earning less than half a billion at the box office would be deemed a disaster – no matter the circumstances.”
It’s expected a decision on a release date will be announced by the end of this month.
The film’s initial release date had been planned for April 3 this year.
Studio bosses announced it would be pushed back to November in March, after evaluation of the ‘global theatrical marketplace’.
