There may be no longer running film franchise than James Bond. James Bond has been a mainstay in films since 1962 and shows no signs of disappearing. It's not hard to believe that there aren't a couple un-produced Bond scripts and we finally tracked one down! James Bond of the Secret Service is the script that eventually became Never Say Never again, which is a remake of the MGM James Bond film Thunderball. This film has a history of it's own that is worth diving in to but for now we are just looking at this early early draft of the film.
LogLine: James Bond has to deal with the villainous organization SPECTRE as they attempt to blackmail the word for control of the Earth's oceans.
Writers: Kevin McClory, Sean Connery, Len Deighton
