'Bond' actor injured on movie set

LOS ANGELES, CA Daniel Craig was sent to the hospital after suffering a minor hand injury while filming the latest James Bond movie "Quantum of Solace" at Pinewood Studios near London.

"There was a minor incident on set," Columbia TriStar Motion Picture Group spokesman Steve Elzer told The Associated Press on Wednesday. "Daniel injured his hand. He sought medical attention. He was back on the set within a matter of hours and production went on."

An e-mail and phone call to the 40-year-old British actor's publicist was not immediately returned Wednesday.

It's not the first accident that's occurred during filming for "Quantum of Solace." Stuntmen were injured while filming an action sequence on famously winding lakeside roads in Northern Italy in April. Neither Craig, director Marc Forster or any other cast members were at the location when those accidents occurred.

"Quantum of Solace" is the 22nd Bond film and is scheduled for release later this year.
