DANIEL Craig has been pictured with his face covered in bloody while filming the latest James Bond film in Italy.
The 51-year-old, who takes the helm for the final time in No Time To Die, looked like he had been in the wars as he shot in the streets of Matera, Italy.
Despite his face being roughed up, the actor wore smart linen suit trousers, with shirt and braces – showing off Bond’s typical suave style.
Earlier in the day he was spotted alongside co-star Lea Seydoux as well as the film’s director Cary Fukunaga.
It was recently filmed the film will be released on April 3 of next year in the UK after months of anticipation.
The film will see a retired 007 having left active service and enjoying a quiet life in Jamaica – before his old CIA buddy Felix Leiter turns up asking for help.
Their mission – to rescue a kidnapped scientist – turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond on the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology.
The latest images come as former Bond Pierce Bronson called for men to “get out of the way” so a female can play the superspy.
The 66-year-old star said a woman should take over his successor Daniel Craig when his final movie No Time To Die is released next year.
Pierce said of the prospect of a female Bond: “Yes! I think we’ve watched the guys do it for the last 40 years, get out of the way, guys, and put a woman up there.

But the actor from Drogheda, who starred in four Bond films from 1995 to 2002, said producer Barbara Broccoli was unlikely to make the move in an interview at Deauville Film Festival.
He continued: “I don’t think that’s going to happen with the Broccolis. I don’t think that is going to happen under their watch.”
“The #MeToo movement has been relevant and significant and well needed in our society, so they’ll have to address that.”
