The whole situation with that is weird. Ian Flemming's 1961 novel Thunderball is based on an unfilmed James Bond screenplay called Longitude 78 West. The 1965 film Thunderball is based on the novel, and the 1983 film Never Say Never Again is also based on the novel. After the 1965 film was released, the authors of the original screenplay sued over rights to the characters/story.

Never Say Never Again wasn't produced by Eon like the other Bond films - it was done by an independent company that included one of the authors of the original Longitude 78 West screenplay. It opened just four months after the Eon-produced Octopussy.

Is it a Bond film? I'd say it is. I mean, the Daniel Craig ones are just like generic action films with a guy called James Bond in them, and no-one pretends they aren't Bond films.
