It'll be a while yet until we see the next James Bond movie, 'No Time to Die'.

We know no re-edits will be made to it. But it turns out that director Cary Fukunaga had something entirely different in mind for "Bond 25", originally.

Fukunaga, whose previous credits include 'True Detective', 'Beasts of No Nation' and 'Maniac', told Interview Magazine: "I swear to God. I had an idea that this movie could all be taking place inside the villain’s lair from the last film.

"There’s this scene [in Spectre] where a needle goes into James Bond’s head, which is supposed to make him forget everything, and then he miraculously escapes by a watch bomb.

"And then he and Léa blow up the place, and go on to save the day.

"I was like, ‘What if everything up until the end of act two is all inside his head?’"

Bonkers, right?

If they almost went with that it makes you wonder what the heck Danny Boyle (who was originally attached to write and direct) had in mind?

In other 007 news, Pierce Brosnan recently spoke about getting drunk with Quentin Tarantino as the director pitched a Bond movie to him.

'No Time to Die' hits Irish cinemas on November 12th.
