Theoretically, No Time To Die is slated to premiere next week before opening in North America on October 8. I sort of won’t believe it’s happening until I am actually watching it, but it seems the time for Daniel Craig’s final Bond movie has come at last. Ahead of its premiere, director Cary Joji Fukunaga covers The Hollywood Reporter, talking the long, strange trip to get Die into theaters, and also his meandering path to 007 in the first place. It’s a solid interview, touching on his Japanese-American roots and the intergenerational trauma of American internment, hop-scotching through other projects like It, which was eventually directed by Andy Muschietti, and taking over Die when Danny Boyle jumped ship. There are two real highlights worth addressing, though, the first of which is Fukunaga’s time on True Detective and leaving the show before season two.
