Just a few weeks after Daniel Craig suffered an ankle injury while filming Bond 25 (working title: Shatterhand) in Jamaica, another on-set mishap has resulted in structural damage and at least one injury. A tweet posted to the official Bond account today said, “During the filming of a controlled explosion on the set of Bond 25 today at Pinewood Studios, damage was caused to the exterior of the 007 Stage. There were no injuries on set, however one crew member outside the stage has sustained a minor injury.” Reporting by The Sun has an anonymous source saying, “There were three loud explosions, one after another, and a member of the crew was lying on the floor outside the building injured.” A stunt was being rehearsed wherein “a fireball was supposed to go through the set,” but apparently things went “horribly wrong.” According to The Sun, part of the roof and some wall panels were blown off in the explosion misfire.
Craig, meanwhile, is taking a few weeks to recover following “minor ankle surgery” that he needed after hurting himself during a stunt. The actor was said to be running and then slipped and fell awkwardly. As of now, there have been no significant changes to the production schedule as a result of these recent issues.
