Actress Quits New 'Bond' Movie Moments After Arriving On Set

Returning to the franchise 34 years after playing May Day in the 1985 Bond film 'A View To A Kill', singer Grace Jones has reportedly stormed off the set of 'Bond 25'.

The 71-year-old star reportedly walked away from the film -- currently known as 'Bond 25' -- after discovering how few lines she’d been given for her performance opposite Daniel Craig.

According to The Sun, the flick's bosses were left frustrated when Jones sensationally quit just moments after arriving on set, after they had forked out a substantial amount of money to secure a luxury villa near Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire.

It's not yet known if Jones has quit the film for good or if negotiations about the singer's role will take place in order to keep her on board.

Jones first appeared in 1985 Bond flick 'A View To A Kill' alongside Roger Moore, Tanya Roberts, Christopher Walken and Patrick Macnee.

It's the latest in a series of setbacks for the flick, with the original director Danny Boyle quitting over a script dispute in August 2018, Daniel Craig injuring himself while filming in Jamaica leading to delayed production, and just last month, the set was rocked by a controlled explosion gone wrong, which left at least one crew member injured.

Along with Craig, 'Bond 25' is set to star 'Bohemian Rhapsody' actor Rami Malek, Jeffrey Wright, and returning actors Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw and Ralph Fiennes -- that is, if no one else decides to storm off the set.
