Less than a month into principal photography and production on Bond 25 has run into unexpected delays after returning star Daniel Craig suffered an on-set injury while filming an action sequence in Jamaica.
During a scene in which the actor was running at a full sprint, Craig reportedly fell and twisted his ankle badly, putting a premature end to filming, which was slated to wrap the Jamaican portion of production this week.
While Craig has been flown to the United States to see a specialist about his ankle and return to action after healing, the first round of filming planned to begin in London this coming weekend has been postponed for the foreseeable future.
Principal photography on the currently untitled sequel to 2015's Spectre officially began last month in Jamaica, following James Bond living out his retirement in the Caribbean only to be called back into action by his old CIA friend Felix Leiter against a new enemy. There is currently no timetable announced for Craig's recovery.
Directed and co-written by Cary Fukunaga, Bond 25 stars Daniel Craig, Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Rory Kinnear, Léa Seydoux, Ben Whishaw, Jeffrey Wright, Ana de Armas, Dali Benssalah, David Dencik, Lashana Lynch, Billy Magnussen and Rami Malek. It is scheduled for release on April 8, 2020.
