Daniel Craig injures his ankle filming James Bond role

Production on the upcoming James Bond movie has reportedly been cancelled after Daniel Craig suffered an ankle injury.

The actor, 51, was shooting a scene in Jamaica when the accident happened.

According to The Sun, he was in the middle of a high-speed chase scene when he took a tumble and hit the ground.

The British actor was reportedly flown to a hospital in the US after ‘falling awkwardly’ on his ankle.

A source told the newspaper: ‘He was sprinting during filming when he slipped and fell quite awkwardly.

‘He was in quite a lot of pain and was complaining about his ankle.

‘As you’d expect he was also pretty angry that it had happened. He threw his suit jacket on the ground in sheer frustration.’

Decked out in classic 007 finery for the role, the hunky blond was apparently wearing a tailored suit when the accident happened.

Bond 25 has been beset with production problems.

Original director Danny Boyle left by mutual consent, after proposing to kill off 007.

The unnamed film – scheduled for release next April – opens with Bond having left active service.

Unfortunately his retirement is interrupted by the arrival in Jamaica of a CIA friend.

Bond’s arch-enemy will be played by Oscar-winner Rami Malek, who starred as Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody. the sun
