James Bond bosses to 'RE-SHOOT scenes to save product placement deals'
James Bond bosses ‘set to painstakingly RE-SHOOT key scenes in a desperate attempt to save time-sensitive product placement deals’… after No Time To Die is delayed AGAIN
The James Bond film, No Time to Die, was scheduled to be released in 2020 but was delayed due to the pandemic.
And now the film’s bosses will frustratingly have to re-shoot key scenes because the MI6 agent’s technology is out-of-date, it was reported on Monday.
The updates will allegedly be made to the 007 franchise in hopes of saving product placement deals from sponsors who are concerned their high-tech items have evolved over the one-year delay.
Oh no! No Time To Die bosses will reportedly have to re-shoot scenes because James Bond’s technology is now out-of-date due to delays with the film’s release date amid the pandemic
An insider told The Sun on Monday: ‘The details of the gadgets and things are all kept tightly under wraps, but everyone knows that James Bond always carries the latest kit with him.
‘But by the time the movie comes out now it will look like Daniel Craig and all of the other cast members are carrying something that has been out for ages. That isn’t really the point of these deals.
‘It means some of the scenes are going to have to be very carefully edited and looked at to bring things up to date.’
No Time To Die reportedly features a number of sponsored products including gadgets from tech firms and mobile phones provided by Nokia – with bosses said to be keen to change scenes where tech guru Q hands out items.

No Time To Die follows Bond after he has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica when his old friend Felix Leiter, played by Jeffrey Wright, from the CIA turns up asking for help.
Leaving his seemingly happy life with Madeleine (Lea Seydoux), Bond returns to the field to face Safin (Rami Malek) who is armed with a new dangerous technology that could impact the world.
Producer Barbara Broccoli has already teased what fans can expect and said that the movie will deliver a satisfying ending for Daniel’s Bond.
Speaking on the official James Bond podcast, she said: ‘It’s a culmination of everything that his portrayal of the character has been through and it ties up all the storylines. It’s a pretty epic film, I have to say.’
