Daniel Craig has been injured on the set of the new James Bond film in Jamaica.

The actor, 51, was shooting the latest installment of the spy film series in the Caribbean nation when he was hurt.

He will now undergo minor ankle surgery, a tweet from the official James Bond account said.

“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.”

An official movie title for the 25th Bond installment has not been released and the film is being referred to as Bond 25.

It will be Craig’s fifth outing as 007 after earlier saying he would “rather cut his own wrists” than do the role again. He eventually confirmed in 2017 he would play Bond one more time.

Oscar winner Rami Malek, who starred as Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody, is making his Bond debut playing a villain while Captain Marvel star Lashana Lynch and Game Night actor Billy Magnussen are joining the cast.
