‘James Bond’ filming delayed after Daniel Craig injures ankle on-set

Bond 25 filming 'suspended as Daniel Craig injures his ankle filming 007 role'

On the heels of reports that the script is an ever-evolving beast as the cameras roll, now there is word that production will be delayed because star Daniel Craig has fallen and injured his ankle.

According to The Sun, Craig was filming a running scene wearing a suit and smart shoes when he fell awkwardly and hurt his foot.

The newspaper cited an unnamed source as saying that Craig was shooting one of his final scenes in Jamaica.

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

According to British newspaper The Sun (via Variety), star Daniel Craig sustained an injury while sprinting on the Jamaican set of the spy thriller, thus prompting production to be paused while he was flown to the USA for X-rays.

Then in 2015, while shooting Spectre, production was postponed for two weeks so he could recover from a knee injury.

It's not yet known whether Craig has fractured, broken or bruised his ankle.

The untitled 25th Bond outing, which co-stars Oscar victor Rami Malek, is reportedly Craig's fifth and final appearance as the British secret agent.

This isn't the first time Craig has sustained an injury while playing the suave secret agent as he knocked two teeth out in 2006 while filming Casino Royale.

Bond 25 (it's still without an official title) is now scheduled to open in theaters April 8, 2020 (though it stands to reason that could potentially change depending on the current shooting delay).

The full cast for the new adventure was revealed in April as production officially began, with Oscar-winner Rami Malek confirmed to play the film's villain. Locations include London, Italy and Norway. 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.
