Daniel Craig will once again appear in the role of super spy James Bond. His code name is 007, a man of British origin who loves fast cars and beautiful girls. Moreover, he carries a gun with a license to kill to complete his mission. These invariably involve global politics where stakes are high. Each of his movies has been a hit and he has a huge fan following. The next one will be the 25th one with the title of Bond 25. Production is in progress but there are delays because Daniel suffered an injury. He is 51 years old and he broke his ankle during shooting. How it happened? Well, he was filming in Jamaica last month and tore a ligament of his ankle. It was during a chase scene and he has to undergo surgery. Obviously, some delay is inevitable and fans must grin and bear it.
James Bond has yet to meet Rami Malek
Cary Fukunaga is the director of Bond 25. He has come in place of Danny Boyle and the movie has already seen a number of shooting delays. Hence, delay in release is inevitable. One of these was Daniel Craig’s ankle injury. Second was an accidental stunt explosion at Pinewood Studios. Thirdly, James Bond has not yet met the villain. Rami Malek is playing the role of the villain but they have not met. They must come face to face and film together. Initially filming was supposed to finish in September. However, it could shift to late October or even early November.
Actors who have donned the mantle of James Bond

Others who have portrayed the master spy James Bond alias 007 are Daniel Craig, Roger Moore, Pierce Brosnan, George Lazenby, and Timothy Dalton. Out of them, Daniel Craig is the latest.
