Hidden cameras found on the set of Bond 25 and the suspect has been charged.
The shooting for James Bond’s upcoming movie Bond 25 is in full upswing. The new movie will star Ana de Armas, Lashana Lynch, Dali Benssalah, Lea Seydoux, Naomie Harris, Billy Magnussen, David Dencik and Daniel Craig.
However, there were several problems faced on the set that has pushed the release date for the movie even further ahead of its official date.
Filming was initially supposed to begin last December but the schedule was disturbed as director Danny Boyle departed. Then, the US director Cary Fukunaga took over shooting in January 2019.
However, even after the new director was brought in, the team found out that the movie still did not have any finalized script.
Daniel Craig flew to US for X-rays as the 51 year old star go injured on the set. Daniel slipped on the set of Jamaica last month and damaged his ankle. This called for an emergency ankle surgery.
The film’s Twitter account confirmed this, “Production will continue whilst Craig is rehabilitating for two weeks post surgery. The film remains on track for the same release date in April 2020.” However, the James Bond actor was healthy and ready for work.

However, Craig was furious about the injury. Due to this mishap, Daniel Craig’s schedule no longer matched the villain for the movie, Rami Malek. This led to further delay in production.
Hidden cameras found
The management at Pinewood studios also reported a hidden camera found inside the Women’s washroom. They called in cops and the device was found where Cary Fukunaga was shooting.
According to The Independent Thames Valley detectives has taken 49 year old Peter Hartley into custody. They have charged him with voyeurism. However, the police has not made it clear how Hartley is connected to the scene.

Hidden cameras made everyone confused. The management at Pinewood studios gave a statement. They said, “We take this issue very seriously. We reported the incident to the police and are supporting them with their investigation.”
Other issues faced at the set
Moreover, Bond 25 had been in shooting for three weeks after the investigation when a stunt for the movie went wrong.
Professionals investigated a controlled explosion that blew the side of the 007 stage. A member of the staff was also injured by the falling debris.
The official James Bond Twitter account released a statement. They said, “During the filming of a controlled explosion on the set of Bond 25 today at Pinewoods studio. Damage was caused to the exterior of the 007 stage”.
The statement continued, “There were no injuries on set. However, one crew member outside the stage has sustained a minor injury”.
