James Bond movie paused again

Cape Town - The new Bond movie has reportedly been put on ice to allow Daniel Craig to recover from an ankle injury.

The untitled 25th instalment has been hit with another setback.

Filming of the movie kicked off in Jamaica last month.

The production was set to move to Pinewood Studios in London over the weekend, but it was cancelled.

A source told The Sun that the 51-year-old was sprinting during filming, slipped and then fell awkwardly.

"He was in a lot of pain and complaining about his ankle. He was also pretty angry that it had happened. He threw his suit jacket on the ground in sheer frustration," said the source.

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