One of the roles the late Fred Ward was known for was Remo Williams in 1985’s Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins, which Orion Pictures hoped would become a James Bond-style action series for them. However, the movie failed critically and commercially however and there were no other Remo Williams movies.
