Daniel Craig’s ankle surgery and recovery won’t halt Bond movie


Daniel Craig‘s ankle injury won’t halt the new James Bond movie, according to the film’s producers.

The 51-year-old suffered the injury while filming in Jamaica earlier this month (May 19), according to The Sun, and a shoot planned for Pinewood Studios near London was canceled, but the schedule is now back on track and filming will continue as the Brit undergoes surgery and then spends time recovering.

An official statement from the producers reads: “Daniel Craig will be undergoing minor ankle surgery resulting from an injury sustained during filming in Jamaica. Production will continue whilst Craig is rehabilitating for two weeks post-surgery.

“The film remains on track for the same release date in April 2020.”

Reports suggest filming in Jamaica has now wrapped and the production has moved to Europe.
