Bond 25's production has been rough.

Weeks after Daniel Craig was injured on set in Jamaica, Variety reports that the film has suffered another major setback. According to the franchise's official Twitter page, an on-set "controlled explosion" Tuesday caused damage to the 007 Stage at the UK's Pinewood Studios. The tweet stated that no one was injured on set, but one crew member who was outside the stage sustained "a minor injury."

"There were three huge explosions and it’s blown part of the Bond stage roof off and some wall panels off the stage," a source told The Sun. "There were three loud explosions, one after another, and a member of the crew was lying on the floor outside the building injured."

Following the explosion, the set was reportedly placed on lockdown.

Craig, who has played James Bond since 2006's Casino Royale, reportedly underwent surgery last month after he damaged an ankle ligament. The 51-year-old actor reportedly fell "quite awkwardly" while filming a scene and had to be flown to the U.S. to see a specialist. According to The Sun, Bond 25 production was canceled for about a week while the star recovered.

The Cary Fukunaga-directed film is set to hit theaters April 8, 2020. Craig will star alongside Rami Malek, Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Lashana Lynch, and Léa Seydoux.
