It is now said that the as-yet-named 25th installment of the James Bond franchise has been dealt with with a new blow, as Grace Jones reportedly has resigned from her role.

Grace, 71, was supposed to make a cameo in the upcoming movie, 34 years after starring Roger Moore in A View To A Kill, but would have been withdrawn in a dispute over her camera time.

A source told The sun: & # 39; The bosses were really excited about her landing. Of course she has a reputation, that's why they organized premium accommodation and rolled out the red carpet on the set to make her feel welcome.

& # 39; But it turns out Grace was expecting a bigger role in the film and took her short cameo as a light one.

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

Rumors that Grace would return to the Bond franchise began to circulate in May, with a source telling The Mail On Sunday: & it comes down to Grace coming in to film a scene with Daniel Craig.

& # 39; There is a lot of excitement because it is a tip from the fight against the Bonds and the era of Roger Moore. Fans will have to wait until next year to know if it makes the cut. & # 39;

In her 1985 adventure with 007, Jones played a hit man named May Day and betrayed vileine Max Zorin after being locked up by Bond.

The curse of Bond 25: a series of bad luck that hit the film

Today's explosion is the last accident in a series of bad luck for the 25th movie describing the 007 adventures.

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

He debated with Daniel Craig about creative differences rather than casting for the main enemy.

Since then, the writer's problem has been great when the scenario was constantly rewritten by director Cary Joji Fukunaga, Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Craig himself.

In April, producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson said at the launch of the film that the blockbuster still has no title.

And with less than a year until the release date, his leading man required surgery on his ankle last month after the star slipped while running.

The 51-year-old filmed on location in Jamaica at that time.

Daniel underwent surgery as a result of adjusting his ankle straps after falling during filming for a high-octane scene in Jamaica in May.

The actor underwent surgery last month followed by two weeks of rehabilitation, causing delays in filming the upcoming movie.

The official Twitter account for Bond 25 issued a statement about his injuries at the time and wrote: & Daniel 39 will undergo a minor ankle operation due to an injury sustained while filming in Jamaica.

& # 39; Production will continue while Craig recovers two weeks after surgery. The film remains on schedule for the same release date in April 2020 & # 39 ;.

Bond 25 has been devastated by drama from the outset, with Daniel & # 39; s involvement in the film initially being questioned when he claimed that he would rather & # 39; beat his wrists than repeat the role & # 39; made a revolution and registered for the film.

Meanwhile, three explosions left on the set at Pinewood Studios in the UK after a stunt went wrong during filming earlier this month.

Health and safety officials arrived on the set of the besieged film after an explosion ripped a hole in a noise phase and injured a member of the crew.

Filming for the film began a few weeks ago, four years after the release of the previous Bond film Specter.

Yet it is claimed that the scenario for the film is endlessly rewritten by a committee consisting of director Cary Joji Fukunaga, Phoebe Waller-Bridge and 007 himself, Daniel.

& # 39; She writes a rewrite of a rewrite, & # 39; a source told the recent involvement of Bazel Bamigboye van Waller-Bridge in the project. & # 39; Daniel & # 39; s writing. Write Cary & # 39; s. The crew thinks they are working on a well-polished show.

& # 39; They have a plot description, but the dialogue is at the very last minute. It is not the way to make a movie. I can imagine they are cleaning it up in the cutting room. That is where most films are made anyway. But you would think that the Bond-fate would be more together. & # 39;

The cast, led by Craig, Naomie Harris, Lea Seydoux, Lashana Lynch and Ana de Armas, started shooting on location in Jamaica, but returned to the UK and Europe to make contact with fellow stars Rami Malek, Ralph Fiennes and Ben Whishaw

Various titles have been mentioned as potential contenders for the photo, including Shatterhand and more recently Eclipse and A Reason To Die.

The film – scheduled for release on April 8, 2020 – is scheduled to become Daniel & # 39; s fifth and final film in the series, with speculation as to who will step into the Secret Service agent's suit.
