Daniel Craig to Have Ankle Surgery After Bond 25 Injury

-

EON Productions announced today that Daniel Craig will be undergoing minor ankle surgery resulting from an injury sustained during Bond 25 filming in Jamaica. Production will continue whilst Craig is rehabilitating for two weeks post-surgery. Despite the Bond 25 injury, the film remains on track for the same release date in April 2020.

EON and United Artists Releasing previously revealed that the cast includes Daniel Craig as 007, Ralph Fiennes as M, Rory Kinnear as Tanner, Ben Whishaw as Q, Naomie Harris as Moneypenny, Léa Seydoux as Dr. Madeleine Swann, Jeffrey Wright as Felix Leiter, Dali Benssalah, Ana De Armas, Billy Magnussen, David Dencik, Lashana Lynch, and Rami Malek.

The filming locations for Bond 25 include Jamaica, Norway, London and Italy. The 007 production is based at Pinewood Studios in the UK.

In the film, Bond has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica. His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for help. The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology.

Daniel Craig has played the secret agent in four films so far, including Casino Royale (2006), Quantum of Solace (2008), Skyfall (2012), and SPECTRE (2015). He also made a guest appearance as Bond in the Danny Boyle-directed opening ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic Games, alongside Queen Elizabeth II.

Cary Joji Fukunaga is directing from a script by Neal Purvis & Robert Wade, Scott Z. Burns with Fukunaga and Phoebe Waller-Bridge.

Metro Goldwyn Mayer will release the 25th James Bond feature film domestically through their United Artists Releasing banner on April 8, 2020; and through Universal Pictures International and Metro Goldwyn Mayer in the UK and internationally from April 3, 2020.
