Agent 007 is back in action.
After an ankle injury to the set last month, James Bond's star Daniel Craig landed in operation, the 51-year-old actor is back in the gym and trained to recapture the iconic action role.
"Daniel Craig meets the gym hard, prepping to shoot next week!" the official 007 Instagram account was shared Saturday. Craig had to undergo two weeks after rehabilitation after surgery.
Craig's Bond injuries are stacked up. He can add it to two teeth that he lost on playing a stunt for "Casino Royale" in 2006; his fingertip was sliced off while he recorded the 2008 "Quantum of Solace" and knee injury he experienced while playing a battlefield for 2015 "Specter."

The movement of the 25th Bond film has been rocked with drama: After Craig's injury in Jamaica in May a blast furnace went wrong leaving a crew member injured.
EON Productions released a statement on James Bond's official Twitter account of the Pinewood Studios event outside London.
"During the recording of a controlled explosion on the Bond 25 set today in Pinewood Studios, damage was done to the outside of the 007 scene," the reading read. "There was no damage to the set, but a crew member outside the scene has suffered a minor injury."
Despite both hubs, the production company has previously stated that the film is on the right track to meet the announced release date of April 8, 2020.
