Director Danny Boyle quit the James Bond franchise after he reportedly refused to kill off Daniel Craig's 007.

According to sources, Craig, who is said to be filming his final Bond movie, and producer Barbara Broccoli wanted the iconic character to die in a "spectacular finale".

Boyle refused to kill off the secret agent, labelling the idea "ridiculous".

The source said: "There were discussions about killing off Bond in dramatic fashion at the end. It would be a final hurrah for Daniel, and leave fans hanging.

"It would also leave it open for a twist in the next instalment -- either Bond hadn't died or there could be a Doctor Who-esque regeneration with a new actor. There were clashes over budget and there's pandemonium among crew with people leaving the production left, right and centre.

"There are fears the film will be put back months and backroom staff are worried about where their next pay cheque is coming from."

It was announced last week that Boyle had quit over "creative differences".
