'Bond 25': Daniel Craig To Have Surgery After Sustaining On-Set Injury
After sustaining an injury while filming the 25th installment of the Bond franchise, Daniel Craig will have to undergo surgery before he can return to the set. The production of the film will apparently not be affected by this.
Last week, Daniel Craig injured himself on the set of 'Bond 25' and production needed to be suspended. The producers have now released an update on the actor's condition via a statement on Twitter. As it turns out, the 51-year old Craig will have to have surgery on his ankle. "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," the statement read.

This is actually NOT the first, time that Daniel Craig was injured while on set for the franchise. The 'Daily Mirror' reported that Craig lost his two front teeth in the heavy fight scene while filming the 2006 movie Casino Royale.
We sure hope that Mr. Craig gets back on his feet soon so production stays on track - we can't wait for the movie to come out in 2020!
