Blackball: The Kevin McClory Story
I'd love to see a biopic of Kevin McClory and his fascinating lifelong obsession with Bond. I'm spurred to suggest this after I saw the Eon doc which caused me to think that his life seems ready made for a movie. The initial fracas with Flemming and the Thunderball court resolution in the first act, his grand triumph of roping Connery back in for Never Say Never Again as the climax of act two, and then finally his last years bitterly fighting to keep the dream alive until 2002 when his
visa situation ends his hopes of Thunderball 3.0.
McClory would be an anti hero. He's the supervillain of the story as far as EON is concerned, but what must the view have been like from inside his volcano base as he plotted his grand Thunderball based triumph?

I'd have Pierce Brosnan as McClory, and Game of Thrones' Rory McCann as Sean Connery.
