The plot of the next 007 film is starting to take shape. Oscar-nominated actress Naomie Harris who portrays Eve Moneypenny in the current run of James Bond films has revealed more about the setting of the fifth outing for co-star Daniel Craig. In an interview in Jamaica, via HeyUGuys, Harris revealed that some time will have passed since the preceding entry in the franchise, SPECTRE.
Harris revealed: "Quite a lot of time has passed since SPECTRE. By the time the film is released in April 2020 it will have been five years - it's half a decade." The actress went on to reveal that "Moneypenny has grown up somewhat" in that time. However, the MI6 secretary "still has that soft spot for Bond, though, that's never gonna go, but she's an independent woman with her own life."
