Cape Town – Bond 25 director Cary Fukunaga has responded to claims of a crew mutiny of the set of the film.

The Sun reported on Tuesday that a "mutiny has erupted on the set" because Cary shows up late on set because he is too busy playing video games on his PlayStation 4.

On Thursday, the director took to social media to clear the air.

Alongside a photo of production designer Mark Tildesley, he wrote: "Mark Tildesley— commented to me once that being a director must feel like dying of a thousand cuts, because of the constant stream of questions one must field."

"There's not a minute on this job that isn't scheduled, and even during a shoot day, in the hours before call, between takes and setups, and after we wrap there's always a line of dedicated and hardworking department heads hungry to prep our next sequences, no one sleeps on this kind of job."

Addressing the rumours about the unrest of set, he wrote: "I'd never disrespect the hardest working cast and crew. We're all in this together. As for my PS4 relationship, if my RDR2 progress is any indication, it's been stunted at 63% for months, and if anyone spoils the end for me before I wrap on B25, I'm going to be pissed."

Our Production Designer/Artful master of living for the day, Mark Tildesley— commented to me once that being a director must feel like dying of a thousand cuts, because of the constant stream of questions one must field. There’s not a minute on this job that isn’t scheduled, and even during a shoot day, in the hours before call, between takes and setups, and after we wrap there’s always a line of dedicated and hard working department heads hungry to prep our next sequences, no one sleeps on this kind of job. So sure it’s hard, but it’s still the best job in the world and I’d never disrespect the hardest working cast and crew. We’re all in this together. ?? As for my PS4 relationship, if my RDR2 progress is any indication, it’s been stunted at 63% for months and if anyone spoils the end for me before I wrap on B25 I’m going to be pissed.

The 41-year-old who is the first American to direct a James Bond movie replaced Danny Boyle who left the production due to creative differences last year.

The movie has had several setbacks.

Daniel Craig sustained an ankle injury while filming in Jamaica for which he had to receive minor surgery.

Shortly after that, an explosion rocked the set at the Pinewood Studios, leaving one crew member injured.

Things seem to be back on schedule with Prince Charles even paying a visit to the set.
