Daniel Craig Returns to the ‘Bond 25’ Set After Injury
Bond is back, but let’s be honest, the super spy is bound to have some aches and pains for as long as he’s been around! According to Deadline, actor Daniel Craig, who plays James Bond, has returned to the set after injuring his ankle ligaments.
The 51-year-old actor fell while filming in Jamaica this past May and the injury was serious enough that he needed to spend some time on the injured list. The next Bond film managed to continue production during Craig’s two-week rehab period, and the injury was not expected to impact the movie’s 2020 film release.
A new tweet from the official James Bond twitter account showed Craig in character as Bond roaming the streets of London as part of a shoot for the film. Director Cary Fukanaga had Craig and crew in the Whitehall area where the actor shot a scene featuring the classic Aston Martin V8, which many Bond fans will remember dating back to The Living Daylights film in the series. See that and additional shots from film shooting below:
At present, the film retains the working title of Bond 25, but an official title will eventually be granted.
Craig, who started in the James Bond series with 2006’s Casino Royale, is reportedly on the final film in his contract to play the super spy 007. The cast will include Ralph Fiennes, Ben Wishaw, Lea Seydoux, Naomie Harris, and Jeffrey Wright, with Bohemian Rhapsody star Rami Malek expected to portray the film’s villain.
