Craig is next victim of Bond curse

The curse on the new James Bond film 'Quantum of Solace' has claimed another victim - 007 star Daniel Craig has sliced off the top of his finger during an action sequence.

The production of the film has been marred by accidents - including a car crash which left one crewmember critically injured - causing gossips to conclude the movie is jinxed.

Production had to be halted in April when a stuntman suffered serious head injuries after losing control of a vehicle and slamming into a wall in northern Italy.

This followed yet another mishap when an Aston Martin sports car had to be fished out of Lake Garda, Italy after it skidded off a narrow road in torrential rain and plunged into the water.

An outdoor James Bond set was also damaged at the weekend when a fire broke out at Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire, England.

Now Craig has suffered the latest misfortune - the actor was admitted to hospital on Tuesday after cutting his finger.

A source tells British newspaper the Daily Mail: "There was quite a lot of blood and it was decided he needed to go to hospital for emergency treatment. Some people are beginning to believe the production is jinxed."

The accident comes just one week after Craig's face was sliced open while filming a scene - requiring eight stitches.
