According to a report in The Sun, Grace Jones made a dramatic exit after she stormed off the set of BOND 25.
The Boomerang actress, who starred in the 1985 Bond film, A View To Kill, quit after learning that she would only make a small cameo in the new film.
The singer left set minutes after seeing the number of lines she would be saying. Although executives are unhappy about Jones leaving the film, they’re even more upset to be stuck with paying the bill for her luxury hotel.
“Grace’s 007 homecoming was meant to be a real crowd-pleasing moment. Bosses were really excited about landing her,” a movie insider told the publication. “Of course, she comes with a reputation, so they organized premium accommodation and rolled out the red carpet on set to make her feel welcome.”
We can imagine the supermodel’s exit from the film will cause additional production delays.
This theatrical exit isn’t the only drama surrounding the film. Some fans of the movie series have made racist remarks regarding rumors that Idris Elba will play James Bond after Daniel Craig. Bond 25 is the last film where Craig will portray the main character.
Here is the official trailer teaser to the film:
