Daniel Craig’s Injury Has Delayed the Next Bond Movie. But For How Long?
The beloved 007 actor has had an accident on set. So, what's next?
James Bond has fallen and it looks like his final mission has been put on hold. But for how long?
On Tuesday, Variety reported that 007 actor Daniel Craig reportedly “slipped and fell quite awkwardly,” which resulted in a twisted ankle and led to him being ” flown to the U.S. for X-rays.” This report comes from unnamed sources at The Sun, meaning, for now, meaning the top-secret allies of James Bond (or anyone from EON productions) have not confirmed this is real.
According to the report, Craig was filming the final scenes of the new film in Jamaica, and subsequent scenes, thought to be shot at Pinewood Studios in London have been suspended. Should Bond fans worry? Will the movie ever be completed?
In all likelihood, Daniel Craig will bounce back and the movie will still come out on time. After all, Harrison Ford broke his leg in 2014, and The Force Awakens still came out on time in 2015. We’re not saying who is tougher — Daniel Craig or Harrison Ford — but if Han Solo can deal with a broken leg, then James Bond can get over a twisted ankle.
That said, here’s hoping Craig makes a swift recovery, if only so he can get back to his dad duties as well as his secret agent work, too.
Bond 25 doesn’t have a title yet is and is scheduled to be out sometime in February 2020.
