It is rumored that the film 's previous director, Danny Boyle, left the project because he wanted to kill off James Bond in the end, a decision that Eon wouldn 't stand for. No Time to Die fittingly feels like a politely passive aggressive rebuttal to Boyle, and a promise that just because this is Craig 's last outing it doesn 't mean that the character will die. This also isn 't the first time the word ”die ” has appeared in a Bond film. Moore confronted death of the voodoo variety in his first appearance as Bond in Live and Let Die (1973), and Pierce Brosnan double dipped on death in Tomorrow Never Dies (1997) and Die Another Day (2002). As far as titles go, No Time to Die is about as Bond as you can get without sticking ”gold ” somewhere in there. The rereleased plot synopsis, attached to the press announcement for the title, hints at a more retro approach with the retired Bond, living in Jamaica, being drawn back into active service by Felix Leiter (Jeffrey Wright) in order to rescue a kidnapped scientist who leads them to a ”mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology. ” Though he isn 't mentioned in the press release, Christoph Waltz was confirmed to return as Bond 's nemesis, Blofeld, just last month. The only thing that 's missing to fully sell No Time to Die as the ultimate retro Bond film is confirmation of a giant Ken Adam inspired villain base. What 's interesting about all of these details is that when Craig 's tenure as Bond began in Casino Royale (2006), great strides were made to modernize the character and help him regain his cool in a world where Jason Bourne was the popular action hero, and Hollywood, feeling the success of Batman Begins (2005), was just starting to understand how profitable a reboot could be, at least for a time. But now, three Bond entries and 15 years later, and audiences have grown increasingly partial to nostalgia, arguably to an even greater degree than what the series most successful entry so far, Skyfall, provided back in 2012.
