Daniel Craig Proves James Bond Can Get Hurt With SPECTRE Knee Injury

It’s not the first time that Daniel Craig has been injured on the set of a James Bond film, but it was a bad enough one for the “Spectre” production to come to a halt. The 46-year-old actor, who plays the lead role in the franchise, sprained his knee while shooting a fight scene for the “Skyfall” sequel which is due to hit cinemas in November.  You can check out some production stills below from the 007 movie.

Daniel Craig suffered an injury during a fight scene for the upcoming James Bond film “Spectre,” the Hollywood Reporter reported yesterday.

Craig hurt his knee during a dramatic action scene being shot at Pinewood Studios in Buckingham, England. The injury was severe enough to cause filming to be brought to a halt with extras being sent home. As the 007 films are very expensive with a tight production schedule, any issues like this can cause quite the panic.

Craig has said in interviews that the script for “Spectre” is much better than “Skyfall” which should excite fans as that film was easily one of the best starring him.

Sources within the production told the British newspaper, The Sun: “Bond bosses would have been panicking. Filming deadlines are so tight, any sort of delay can bring mayhem to the schedules.”

A spokesperson for the movie claimed that Craig was on the mend and would be filming again this weekend, but there has been no word or site of him on set.

This isn’t the first wrench thrown into the production schedule as producers had planned to shoot key scenes on the 15th century Ponte Sisto bridge in Rome, including having Craig leap from a helicopter, but that has been stopped. Religious campaigners since the bridge holds special significance with links to Pop Innocent X, and this led them to hold protests in the Italian capital. Director Sam Mendes had been prepared to begin shooting in that location in March, but things are on hold as they continue looks for a less controversial site.

Former 007, Sir Roger Moore jokingly tweeted that he was ready to don the tuxedo once again if needed.

Spectre” is the fourth James Bond film that Craig has starred in, and it began filming in December with Sam Mendes. Naomie Harris (Moneypenny), Ben Whishaw (Q), Rory Kinnear (Bill Tanner) and Ralph Fiennes (M) will be returning. Christopher Waltz is a new face in the cast set to play a classic 007 villain.

“Spectre” is set to be released in theaters Nov. 6 as long as no other production delays happen.
