Spectre: Daniel Craig undergoes knee surgery after injury during shooting
Daniel Craig has had knee surgery after an injury sustained while shooting scenes for new James Bond movie Spectre.
Eon Productions said Daniel Craig, 47, had had a “minor procedure” in New York during a break in production over Easter.
A spokeswoman denied reports Daniel Craig had missed several days of filming on the 24th James Bond movie.
“During a scheduled break, Daniel Craig had arthroscopic surgery to repair his knee injury. He will rejoin production on April 22nd at Pinewood,” she said.
Filming on Spectre began at Pinewood Studios, in Buckinghamshire, last December, and has since moved to Rome and Mexico.
It is Daniel Craig’s fourth outing as the secret service agent, and follows the success of 2012’s Skyfall, which made $1.1 billion worldwide.
Spectre features Christoph Waltz plays a character called Oberhauser – which, in the novels, is the name of James Bond’s former skiing instructor. However, it has been rumored the actor will be revealed as James Bond’s old nemesis, Ernst Stavro Blofeld.
Ernst Stavro Blofeld was the “number one” in Spectre, an international crime syndicate which last featured in the Sean Connery-era films.
Spectre will be released on November 6, 2015.
