Dalton was contracted for three Bond movies, with the next set to release in 1991, but a legal dispute between EON Productions and MGM stalled the movie.
After this was resolved in 1993, the star was asked to appear in Goldeneye, but it didn’t come to pass.
Dalton told The Week in 2014: “[Broccoli] asked if I would come back, and I said, ‘Well, I’ve actually changed my mind a little bit. I think that I’d love to do one. Try and take the best of the two that I have done, and consolidate them into a third.’”
“And he said, quite rightly, ‘Look, Tim. You can’t do one. There’s no way, after a five-year gap between movies that you can come back and just do one. You’d have to plan on four or five.’ And I thought, ‘Oh, no, that would be the rest of my life. Too much. Too long.’ So I respectfully declined.”
