Bond 25 will be delayed even further now. The film production hit another snag when Daniel Craig got an injury while shooting an action scene. According to reports, the action actor fell while running on the set in Jamaica and he hurt his ankle while shooting the scene.
The scene Craig was shooting was one of his final scenes in Jamaica. According to a source, “He was sprinting during filming when he slipped and fell quite awkwardly. He was in quite a lot of pain and was complaining about his ankle.”
So, production was shut down and Craig was flown back to the United States to see his doctor and get some X-rays. We don’t know how long the shooting will be delayed, but the film was supposed to move to London’s Pinewood Studios to shoot at the end of the week. That’s been canceled, though.
James Bond productions are quite rough on the actor and I’m sure you all remember him saying that he’d rather slash his wrists than make another James Bond movie.
While shooting Casino Royale, he had two teeth knocked out of his head during a stunt scene. In Quantum of Solace, he cut off the tip of a finger and tore a shoulder muscle. He went on to injure his knee during a fight scene in Spectre. And now this.
The movie is being directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga and it also stars Rami Malek as the villain, Ana De Armas, Lashana Lynch, David Dencik, Billy Magnussen, Dali Benssalah, Lea Seydoux, Jeffrey Wright, Ben Whishaw, Rory Kinnear, Naomi Harris, and Ralph Fiennes.
Bond 25 release is currently scheduled for April 8th, 2020.
