The film remains on track for the same release date in April 2020
Daniel Craig will undergo a minor ankle operation due to an injury that occurred while recording the title of the James Bond movie.
"Production continues while Craig is rehabilitating for two weeks after surgery. The film is still on track for the same release date in April 2020," read a statement published on the franchise's official Twitter account . Bond producer Eon had not previously commented on the damage reports.
The film revealed its cast in April. Rami Malek will portray the villain this time, while Ben Whishaw returns as Q. Lea Seydoux will also play his role from Specter as Dr. Madeleine Swann, Naomie Harris returns as Miss Moneypenny and Ralph Fiennes will be back as M.
Details of the plot are about how Bond enjoys a quiet life in Jamaica (where Craig was injured during admission) after leaving active service. But of course his peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter of the CIA turns out to ask for help. The mission to save a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond to the trail of a mysterious villain (played by Malek) armed with dangerous new technology.
In addition to Jamaica, film locations include Norway, Pinewood and London before the end of Italy.
The producers of the film are Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson along with director Cary Joji Fukunaga.
This marks Craig's fifth time playing Bond, surpassing Pierce Brosnan's four films, but behind Sean Connery and Roger Moore, who separately played 007 in seven films.
Bond 25 is set to April 8, 2020 within the framework of MGM's United Artists and Annapurna.
