Daniel Craig has undergone knee surgery during a scheduled break from filming Spectre, the 24th installment in the James Bond series.

"During a scheduled break, Daniel Craig had arthroscopic surgery to repair his knee injury," the rep told the BBC.

Daniel Craig, 47, had the "minor procedure" done in New York during a break in filming over Easter.

"He will rejoin production on April 22 at Pinewood," the rep said.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Daniel Craig injured his knee during a fight scene for the 007 film.

The 47-year-old sprained his knee while shooting at London’s Pinewood Studios in early February.

Roger Moore, the 87-year-old former James Bond, offered to "step in" via Twitter following news of the injury.

Spectre is Daniel Craig's fourth appearance in the 007 series. He debuted as James bond in 2006's Casino Royale and followed that appearance in the role in 2008's Quantum of Solace and 2012's Skyfall.

Spectre, directed by Sam Mendes, also stars Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Rory Kinnear and Ben Whishaw, as well as newcomers Dave Bautista, Monica Bellucci, Andrew Scott, Léa Seydoux, Stephanie Sigman and Christoph Waltz.

Spectre, starring Daniel Craig, is slated to be in theaters Nov. 6.
