Bond 25 has been hit by several setbacks since production started, with injuries, crew reshuffles and even explosions marring work on the film. 

Now the yet-to-be-named 25th installment of the James Bond franchise is said to have been dealt with another blow, as Grace Jones has reportedly quit her role. 

Grace, 71, was believed to be making a cameo in the upcoming film, 34 years after starring alongside Roger Moore in A View To A Kill, but is said to have pulled out in a dispute over her camera time.

A source told The Sun: 'Bosses were really excited about landing her. Of course, she comes with a reputation, so they organised premium accommodation and rolled out the red carpet on set to make her feel welcome.

'But it turns out Grace was expecting to play a bigger role in the movie and took her brief cameo as a slight.

'She was out of there quicker than it takes to rustle up a martini.'

MailOnline has contacted Grace's representatives and a Bond 25 spokesperson for comment.

Rumours that Grace would be returning to the Bond franchise began circulating in May, with a source telling The Mail On Sunday: ‘Word is that Grace is coming in to film a scene with Daniel Craig.

'There is a lot of excitement as it is a tip of the hat to past Bonds and Roger Moore’s era. Fans will have to wait until next year to know if it makes the cut.’

In her 1985 adventure with 007, Jones played an assassin called May Day who went on to betray the villainous Max Zorin after being bedded by Bond.

The first blow came when director Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire) quit in August last year.

He argued with Daniel Craig over creative differences over casting for the lead villain.
