Daniel Craig’s latest outing as James Bond will be the longest 007 movie ever.

The eagerly anticipated No Time To Die is set to run for a whopping 163 minutes, according to cinema listings.

That beats 2015's Spectre, which was 148 minutes long and previously held the title of the longest Bond film.

The film has been hugely delayed.

It was originally set to be unveiled late in 2019 but that date was pushed back after original director Danny Boyle exited the project. It then suffered various setbacks because of the COVID pandemic.

No Time To Die will be Craig’s last outing as the suave spy.

The actor first slipped into 007’s tux in 2006’s Casino Royale and the new film will be his fifth and last as Bond.

Addressing his departure, he said on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon: “I’ve given it everything I can. I’m so glad that I came back and did this last one. We had lots of loose threads we hadn’t tied up.”

The star also had some advice for whoever takes over the iconic role: “Don’t f*** it up.”

“It is a beautiful, amazing thing,” he said.
