The new film in the James Bond saga seems to be jinxed. After Danny Boyle decided to leave the direction of the tape and the protagonist, Daniel Craig, announced that it is his last performance as a secret agent, now the filming has been paralyzed, precisely by the latter, Daniel Craig. The actor who has given life in the last films to James Bond has been injured in full recording and filming has had to be postponed.
According to some British media like Daily Mail or the Sun, the actor, of 51 years, sprained an ankle during one of the scenes last weekend and, for the moment, the filming has been cancelled. "He was running when he slipped and fell. He had a lot of pain and complained about his ankle, "assures a source to The Sun.
It is not the first time that Craig is injured due to the action scenes of these films. In 2015, during Spectre's recording, the British interpreter had to have his knee operated after having suffered several injuries. Craig hurt his knee when he was filming an action scene in the Austrian Alps, an injury that worsened when a month later he recorded a shootout at Pinewood Studios outside London. Before, in Quantum of Solace , he hurt a Doll and Skyfall in the leg.
Bond 25, the provisional title of the saga's new film, has been in the sights from the beginning. In August last year, Oscar filmmaker Danny Boyle decided to leave the management for "creative differences" with their producers. An announcement that came five months after he said he was already working on the new script of the franchise and expected to start soon filming.
Finally, the filming of the film, which premiere is scheduled for November this year, started last month, four years after the launch of the previous Bond movie, Specter, and the script is being rewritten by a committee formed by the creators Cary Joji Fukunaga, Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Craig himself. The cast, led by Craig, Naomie Harris, Lea Seydoux, Shana Lynch and the Spanish-Cuban Ana de Armas, was presented in Jamaica last April, has now returned to Europe and joined the cast Rami Malek, Ralph Fiennes and Ben Whishaw.
