Did You Know?
McClory wrote the Bond film 'Warhead' with Sean Connery and Len Deighton. The film was never made due to a High Court legal action brought by the Fleming Trustees and funded by Eon/Danjaq. The Trustees' bid failed and McClory's Bond rights were confirmed but production had already begun on the less contentious 'Never Say Never Again' (1984).
