In an interview with Comics2Film The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen producer Don Murphy reveals that the role of Campion Bond, an ancestor of James Bond, had to be removed from the film because of torrential flooding in Prague. The flooding destroyed many of the including the Nautilus submarine set. The destroyed sets forced changes in the movie including a change to the epilogue which was to feature Campion Bond and set up for the film’s sequel.
Though it was never revealed who was to play the role of Campion Bond, rumours said that the producers wished to cast Roger Moore or Jason Isaacs. Of course, Bond fans can still enjoy Sean Connery in the role of adventurer Allan Quartermain.
