Additional Information
Licence to Kill was filmed entirely in Florida and Mexico to avoid punitive taxation on the use of foreign actors. The film also marked the end of John Glen's unbroken run as director on the Bond movies - a role he had accompanied for a record-breaking five consecutive movies, starting with 1981's 'For Your Eyes Only'.

Licence to Kill Storyboard Collection - Underwater & Seaplane Sequence

SOLD

Description

A collection of twelve storyboards from James Bond's 16th outing, License to Kill (1989). This storyboard collection features all the main action and story beats from the Underwater and Seaplane Sequence, including Bond's under-water fight with Krest's henchmen, Bond's 'barefoot' water-skiing behind the seaplane and his mid-air hijack of the aircraft.

Each panel features a single storyboarded moment accompanied by a brief description of the characters and related action and were originated in June and July 1988. The panels are generally in good production-used condition but some feature tears to the corners and mild crinkling.

Licence to Kill, the first Bond movie not to use a title from an Ian Fleming story, combines plot elements from two of Fleming's short stories. The film sees Bond (Timothy Dalton) on the run from MI6, as he pursues a vendetta against drug lord, Franz Sanchez (Robert Davi), who ordered a brutal attack on Bond's longtime friend, Felix Leiter (David Hedison), and his new bride, Della. The film is significantly darker and more violent than any of its predecessors and is a standout entry in the franchise.

Producers had originally wanted to base the 16th James Bond film in China - one of the few countries the series had not visited up to that point. Two treatments were written about a drug lord based in The Golden Triangle and writers, Michael G. Wilson and Richard Maibaum, conceived a chase sequence on 'The Great Wall' and a fight scene amongst 'The Terracotta Army'. The plans eventually fell through, and Cubby Broccoli finally closed negotiations to base the production out of Estudios Churubusco - a huge film studio in Mexico City. Consequently, no part of the movie was filmed in the United Kingdom for the first time in Bond movie history.
