The new Land Rover Defender lands a role in the upcoming 007 movie

It’s looking like Daniel Craig will get to drive (or be chased by) a number of pretty choice vehicles in the upcoming 007 film. 

Aston Martin has confirmed its Valhalla, DB5 and V8 Vantage will all appear in the movie earlier this year, and now Land Rover has thrown its new Defender into the mix.  

By way of a video teaser showing the off-roader tear around in the mud/sticks/hills, the British automaker recently announced the new Defender 110 will make an appearance in the 25th James Bond film, No Time to Die

In the 40-second spot, the film’s stunt driver Jess Hawkins takes some “pretty much standard as it would be out of the factory” Santorini Black Defender Defender through the paces, smiling through much of it. 

“Everything we’ve given it so far, it’s taken,” Hawkins says in the video. “I’d do this every day if I could!”

The short appears to show at least one of the four-door Defender 110s ending up on its side. Hopefully they got the shot. 

Land Rover says the Range Rover Sport SVR, Land Rover Series III and Range Rover Classic will also appear in the film. No Time to Die hits big screens on April 8, 2020, a month after the 2020 Defender’s arrival.
