Filming halted by injury to 007After filming was halted because of an injury to star Daniel Craig, the action has resumed on the set of the latest James Bond film with Daniel Craig pictured on the streets of Mexico having recently recorded scenes in which the crew set off explosions on the day of a local festival!

The crew were believed to be aware of the Day of the Dead event taking place in the area at the time, but it is believed that a lot of people attending were put on edge after smoke filled the air and the bangs in the distance rattled around.

The festival itself forms part of the new movie which has close links to the Live and Let Die film which featured similar events from the time recorded in New Orleans and Jamaica.

Bond fans will be pleased to see the star back on the set after he was struck down by injury in February. Daniel Craig, who is famous for doing all of his own stunts, picked up a knee injury last month while filming scenes in the mountains in Austria just before they relocated to Italy. The injury caused filming to be “put on hold indefinitely” until the star was fit to return but it appears the problem was only minor with Craig back on his feet and back on the set within a month.

Barring any further problems, the 24th Bond film is set for release in cinemas on 6th November this year.
