Daniel Craig recently had knee surgery to repair an injury sustained while shooting scenes from the new James Bond film "Spectre," an Eon Productions spokeswoman said this week.

The studio told the BBC News that Craig's "minor procedure" took place in New York during a planned Easter break in production.

"During a scheduled break, Daniel Craig had arthroscopic surgery to repair his knee injury. He will rejoin production on April 22nd at Pinewood," the spokeswoman said.

"Spectre" is the fourth film in which Craig plays the iconic Agent 007 James Bond, following up 2006's "Casino Royale," 2008's "Quantum of Solace," and 2012's "Skyfall."

"News of Craig's injury first surfaced in February when the 46-year-old 007 actor reportedly hurt himself while filming a fight scene," Deadline.com reported. "Production execs at the time moved to deny claims the incident would affect production or, more importantly, the film's release date Nov. 6."

"Spectre's" production outside London's Pinewood Studio will cross Europe to Morocco and then cross the Atlantic Ocean into Mexico, according to Deadline.com. The website reported that requests to shoot in Rome at the city's largest cemetery was denied by monks.

Ralph Fiennes joins Craig in "Spectre" as M, Naomie Harris as Eve Moneypenny, and Ben Whishaw as Q. New to the series include Christoph Waltz, rumored to be playing Bond nemesis Blofeld and Monica Bellucci will play Lea Seydoux. Sam Mendes, who directed "Skyfall," is returning to guide "Spectre."

Mendes said in a behind-the-scenes video blog in February that "Spectre" will dig deeper into Bond's childhood and develop the characters of M, Moneypenny, and Q more, according to BBC News.

"Spectre is a movie entirely driven by Bond," Mendes said in the vlog. "He is on a mission from the very beginning."

"The reasons I'm doing the second Bond movie are the reasons I would do any movie, really, which is all to do with the story," he continued. "It's about whether or not to pursue the life (Bond's) always pursued, whether he matters and is he going to continue or not."
