Craig, 51, slipped and fell while running, and the subsequent ankle injury resulted in him being flown to the USA for treatment, Britain's The Guardian reported.
"He was sprinting during filming when he slipped and fell quite awkwardly", a source told the newspaper. He was also pretty angry that it had happened.
While the creative heads behind Bond 25 reportedly hope production won't be held up for too long, The Sun reports that filming at Pinewood Studios in London has been canceled following Daniel Craig's injury. "He threw his suit jacket on the ground in sheer frustration", said the source. That film's release date was unaffected despite the seriousness of Cruise's injury, which resulted in a broken ankle. While shooting Casino Royale, Craig had two of his teeth knocked out during his first stunt scene in the role.
Even now though it hasn't been officially stated by anyone, many seem to believe that Bond 25 will be Craig's final turn in the tuxedo, and on-set injuries probably help convince him to hang it up.
The release date had been previously delayed due to the departure of director Danny Boyle from the project.
Cary Joji Fukunaga is directing from a script by Neal Purvis, Robert Wade, Scott Z. Burns and Phoebe Waller-Bridge.
Bond 25 (it's still without an official title) is now scheduled to open in theaters April 8, 2020 (though it stands to reason that could potentially change depending on the current shooting delay). Franchise veterans Ralph Fiennes, Naomi Harris, Lea Seydeoux, Ben Whishaw, Rory Kinnear, and Jeffrey Wright are set to return, while newcomers Dali Benssalah, Ana de Armas, Billy Magnussen, and Lashana Lynch are confirmed to be on board.
Bond 25 will follow the British spy has he faces off against "a mysterious villain armed with unsafe new technology" while in pursuit of a missing scientist.
