In the James Bond film that never was, Sean Connery, as James Bond was to battle a robot shark in the New York sewers. The script tells a dramatic story in which the mysterious disappearance of planes in the Bermuda Triangle is work of the criminal organisation SPECTRE. They are intent on causing havoc by exploding a nuclear warhead under New York's Wall Street, delivered by a robotic Hammerhead shark, via the city's sewer network. Unfortunately the film was never to be made due to a bitter and complicated legal battle.
This is the only known piece of original concept artwork for Warhead that has come on to the market that Christie's are aware of.
