Cape Town - The cast of the new James Bond film have reportedly met with some of Britain's top spies on the set of the new 007 movie.

Filming for the 25th instalment is currently underway in London.

Lashana Lynch, David Denick, Ana De Armas, Dali Benssalah and Billy Magnussen join returning cast Daniel Craig, Naomi Harris, Léa Seydoux, Ben Whishaw, Rory Kinnear and Ralph Fiennes.

According to reports spy chief Alex Younger and other senior figures from British intelligence agency MI6 visited Pinewood Studios last week.

It looks like the movie is back on track after it had several setbacks

Daniel 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.

In June a crew member was arrested for allegedly planting a hidden camera in a woman's restroom on the set of Bond 25.

And in July Grace Jones allegedly stormed off the set of Bond 25 after learning she'd only been given a tiny cameo in the new 007 movie.
