Bond movie halted after Daniel Craig suffers injury

Bond movie halted after Daniel Craig suffers injury

Cape Town - The new Bond movie has reportedly been put on ice to allow Daniel Craig to recover from an ankle injury.

A source told The Sun that the 51-year-old was sprinting during filming, slipped and then fell awkwardly.

According to The Sun, Craig fell while sprinting on the Bond 25 sets in Jamaica last week and has been flown to the United States for X-rays that has led to the hold of the filming. The actor had two teeth knocked out during his first stunt scene for his Bond debut in Casino Royale; sustained a number of injuries, including slicing off the tip of a finger and tearing a shoulder muscle on his next, Quantum of Solace and injuring his knee during a fight scene for his most recent Spectre.

Even after its high-profile director debacle, James Bond's 25th cinematic outing is still facing a few more obstacles, it seems, as 007 himself has suffered an injury in the line of duty.

According to the report, Daniel Craig was filming one of his last scenes in Jamaica, with filming set to resume in London's Pinewood Studios afterward.

'He was in quite a lot of pain and was complaining about his ankle.

The unnamed film - scheduled for release next April and rumoured to be a remake of 1969's On Her Majesty's Secret Service starring George Lazenby - opens with Bond having left active service.

The cast, led by Craig, Naomie Harris, Lea Seydoux, Lashana Lynch and Ana de Armas, have been on location in Jamaica but are heading back to Europe to link up with Rami Malek, Ralph Fiennes and Ben Whishaw. Danny Boyle quit as director along with his writing partner John Hodge over creative differences regarding the script with long-time Bond producer Barbara Broccoli and Cary Joji Fukunaga was brought in. "The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with unsafe new technology".
