Hardcore Bond fans know we're talking about Warhead, the James Bond movie that never was. It would have starred (and was co-written by) Sean Connery and would feature James Bond batling robotic sharks, skiing on the Hudson River, terrorists bent on exploding a nuclear warhead underneath Wall Street, and helicopter attacks on the Statue of Liberty. According to Sellers, "It would have been the most extravagant Bond film ever." It might sound corny now, but to me it's already better than A View To A Kill, which is one of my least favorite Bond films.
It would have gone before the cameras in 1977 with a budget of $22 million, but the Broccoli's started legal proceedings against the film and things ground to a halt, never to be revived again. Check out some exclusive photos from inside the book over at Commander Bond, and think about what this could have done, for better or for worse, to the franchise.
