Daniel Craig has knee surgery in NYC, returns to filming on April 22nd
James Bond star Daniel Craig has flown to New York for surgery on a knee problem. He will not return to filming 'SPECTRE' until April 22nd 2015.
"During a scheduled break, Daniel Craig had arthroscopic surgery to repair his knee injury. He will rejoin production on April 22nd at Pinewood," a spokesperson for EON Productions told the BBC.
They denied Craig had missed any planned filming, but a three week break without the lead actor is almost unprecedented.
Back in 2002, EON had to suspend filming of 'Die Another Day' whilst Pierce Brosnan also underwent a procedure on a knee injury. It was the first time a Bond movie had to put shooting on hold mid-production.
Almost all of the location work for 'SPECTRE' has been completed. Shooting will continue at Pinewood Studios in the UK before a brief trip for the first unit to Morocco in June.
