Problems on the set of the new James Bond film appear to still be happening according to the latest report from British tabloid The Sun.
The paper reports that the film’s director Cary Fukunaga was three hours late to a scheduled slot due to a particularly intense video games session on a PlayStation.
A large number of crew were reportedly waiting on location when he eventually turned up and the film, already majorly delayed because of disagreements and an ankle injury to leading man Daniel Craig, fell behind schedule further.
To make up for lost time, Fukunaga’s senior production staff reportedly told the crew they would be required to work over the weekend – which included Father’s Day. That did not go over well with a source saying:
“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. 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.”
The same paper revealed how earlier this month three explosions ripped through the set and left one member of crew in hospital. “Bond 25” is still in the midst of production and targeting an April 2020 release at present.
