These Bond movies never seem to go smoothly, do they?
Having been injured on the set of Bond 25 (catchy title) while filming in Jamaica, 51-year-old Daniel Craig has apparently bunched his ankle and now needs to have surgery to fix the damage. Craig was filming a scene where Bond was in full sprint when the injury occurred.
Craig famously had knee surgery while filming Spectre in 2015, underlining how hard on the body filming these action sequences can be.
It's thought that production will be rescheduled around other actors and sequences while Craig recovers from his surgery, thus not holding things up too much.

The much anticipated final outing for Craig as the iconic spy will be released in April of next year and is helmed by 'True Detective' season one director, Cary Joji Fukunaga. Recent Oscar winner Rami Malek will play the villain.
