The set for the 25th James Bond film was rocked Tuesday after an explosion stunt went wrong, injuring one crew member.
EON Productions released a statement on the James Bond official Twitter account about the incident at Pinewood Studios outside London.
“During the filming of a controlled explosion on the set of Bond 25 today at Pinewood Studios, damage was caused to the exterior of the 007 Stage,” the statement read. “There were no injuries on set, however one crew member outside the stage has sustained a minor injury.”
There were no further details from the production company about the extent of the damage or the injury.

Britain’s The Sun, which broke the news of the explosion, reported the crew member was “crushed by part of the set which fell on him” and quoted a source who described the scene as “utter chaos.”
The 25th installment of the spy franchise has been hit with other drama. Star Daniel Craig, 51, underwent ankle surgery after sustaining an injury while filming a stunt in Jamaica last month.
