"Get Out." Daniel Kaluuya was given the lead role on the spot after nailing his audition. Jordan Peele said Kaluuya did about five takes of a key scene, in which his character needs to cry, and each was so perfect that the single tear came down at the exact same time for each take.

Craig will be joined by Ralph Fiennes as M, the head of MI6; Rory Kinnear as Tanner, a loyal associate of Bond's; Ben Whishaw as Q, who presides over MI6's research and development department; Naomie Harris as Moneypenny; Léa Seydoux as the psychologist Dr Madeleine Swann; and Jeffrey Wright as CIA agent Felix Leiter. Rami Malek will take on the role of the antagonist. Other new additions to the cast include Billy Magnussen, Ana De Armas, David Dencik, Dali Benssalah and Lashana Lynch. No Time to Die is directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga, who came on board as a director after Danny Boyle exited the project over "creative differences." The film has been shot across the Caribbean island nation of Jamaica, London, Italy, and Norway.

The Horse Head used in the movie "The Godfather" was real.

Fukunaga has co-written the film alongside Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Scott Z Burns, Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, according to Collider. No Time to Die is Craig's fifth and final outing as James Bond. There has been a raging debate about who would succeed the actor. A strong case has been made by many who want to see a female Bond. Recently, Pierce Brosnan said that he would like to see a gender-flipped 007 but was unsure whether producers, Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson, would be willing to see the change.
