JAMES Bond’s death-defying luck might be intact but another of the show’s stars could be set for a shock end after the MI5 spy’s actor, Daniel Craig, was spotted filming in a graveyard.
The Hollywood star, who is playing the special agent for the final time in No Time To Die, was seen shooting eerie scenes today, causing some to speculate the martini-swigging character could be mourning the loss of a close one.
Yet the victim at the heart of the movie’s desert scenes – which see Bond hovering over a grave in a beige suit – is unclear.
Daniel’s character, ever suave and sophisticated, is seen with a blue shirt poking out from under his suit and trendy sunglasses.
He is accompanied by a bunch of men as he strolls around the headstones and memorials on a scorching hot summer day.
He is firstly seen charging around some particularly ornate stone coffins before glancing at the ground.
Then, perhaps in a sign of danger to come, he is seen looking ahead and staring straight into the distance.
The teaser shots come shortly after the 51 year old actor was seen with a bloodied face shooting additional parts of the film in the same Italian location.
It was previously revealed that actors Naomie Harris, Ralph Fiennes, and Lea Seydoux will all return for the latest instalment of the Bond sequence.
The 25th movie of the series was initially entitled 25, yet new director Cary Joji Fukunaga bestowed the new title.
It was recently revealed that the film will be released on April 3 of next year in the UK after months of anticipation.
The film will see a retired 007 having left active service and enjoying a quiet life in Jamaica – before his old CIA buddy Felix Leiter turns up asking for help.
Their mission – to rescue a kidnapped scientist – turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond on the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology.
The film will be released in the UK on February 14, 2020 (Valentine’s Day!).

Meanwhile, the latest images come as former Bond Pierce Bronson called for men to “get out of the way” so a female can play the superspy.
The 66-year-old star said a woman should take over his successor Daniel Craig next year.
Pierce said of the prospect of a female Bond: “Yes! I think we’ve watched the guys do it for the last 40 years, get out of the way, guys, and put a woman up there.”
