Daniel Craig has suspended filming for the new James Bond movie after he injured his ankle.

Craig has been flown to the US for X-rays, resulting in the filming that was scheduled to begin at London's iconic Pinewood Studios at the end of the week to be canceled.

The English actor, 51, is said to have hurt himself whilst filming the upcoming movie - now dubbed Bond 25 - in Jamaica. According to British newspaper The Sun, the actor fell while sprinting on the set in Jamaica last week and has been flown to the USA for X-rays, resulting in a suspension of the shoot.

"He was sprinting during filming when he slipped and fell quite awkwardly", the anonymous source reportedly said.

The insider added: "He was in quite a lot of pain and was complaining about his ankle".

It's not yet known whether Craig has fractured, broken or bruised his ankle.

Bond 25 is now set for release April 8, 2020.

In April the cast and the villain of the film were announced from Ian Flemming's iconic house in Jamaica.
