Daniel Craig Reportedly Hospitalized While Shooting 'Bond 25'
The actor injured his ankle while filmming in Jamaica
Published May 14, 2019Daniel Craig and director Cary Fukunaga are deep into production on the 25th James Bond film, but production has hit a snag. According to a report, Craig injured his ankle while shooting in Jamaica and had to be flown to the United States, thus halting production.
An unnamed source shred details with the U.K.'s The Sun newspaper, which reports 51-year-old Craig had been sprinting in a scene for the new 007 film when he tripped and fell.
"Daniel was suited and booted for one of the last scenes in Jamaica," the source said. "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.... As you'd expect he was also pretty angry that it had happened. He threw his suit jacket on the ground in sheer frustration."
The Bond film was scheduled to continue production in London this weekend, but The Sun reports that Craig's injury has thrown a wrench into plans. He's currently being treated by a specialist in the United States.
Bond 25 is slated for release on April 8, 2020.
