It seems like the production problems on Bond 25 are never-ending. Following Craig’s ankle injury, the official 007 Twitter account put a positive spin on what some fans are calling a “cursed” movie by releasing a snap of the 51-year-old star in the gym before getting back to filming this week. However, The Sun’s James Bond insider now alleges director Fukunaga – who replaced Danny Boyle – caused a set mutiny this weekend after being “several hours” late for shooting due to an intense gaming session on his PlayStation.
Bond 25 has already seen a number of shooting delays, from Craig’s ankle injury to the accidental stunt explosion at Pinewood Studios.
Allegedly, Cary’s senior production staff required the crew to work over the weekend – including Father’s Day – however many refused to do so.
A Bond insider said: “There is real mutiny right now on the set.
“It’s bad enough that Cary was so late for filming and held everyone up, but then for the crew to be asked to work extra hours to cover it was just the final straw.”
They added: “He turned up three hours late which p***ed everyone off.
“There was a big bust up because they’re so behind.
“Many said they were not willing to give up their Father’s Day in return for this film. It’s just doomed.”
Allegedly, Craig’s injury also resulted in shoot scheduling conflicts with Bond villain Rami Malek.
The Sun’s Bond source said: “Filming was supposed to finish in September but the cast and crew have been told it’s been pushed back to late October, possible early November due to Daniel’s injury and the set explosion.
“But they still need to find a time for Daniel and Rami to film together. You can’t have a Bond film where 007 doesn’t come face to face with the villain so it’s a complete nightmare logistically.
“They are looking at the whole schedule again now and doing everything they can to make it work, but production is going to have to over-run even further now.”
Bond 25 is released in UK cinemas on April 3, 2020.
