Queen, Lady GaGa: James Bond composer's next choice for theme tune?
Composer of James Bond, David Arnold, has revealed that he would like Queen to record the next film's theme tune.
Titled 'Skyfall', the 23rd installment of the spy franchise will be released next October, and Arnold, who has written tracks for the past five Bond films - wants to see Queen have a go at writing the main theme.
Arnold told the Daily Star: "I'm a massive Queen fan and I would love them to do a theme tune. Imagine how ridiculously bombastic a Queen anthem could be.
"It's a shame because they would have been perfect for Roger Moore's Bond during the '80s when he was punching clowns."
Although, with guitarist Brain May recently hinting that the band and Lady GaGa plan to collaborate in the future, bookmakers are now offering odds on the pair recording the new 007 theme tune.
In spite of the fact that, Rihanna is currently being the favorite to record the track at 6/1, odds on a Queen and GaGa duet are offered at 25/1.
In the mean time, Arnold clarified rumors that Adele has already recorded a song for the film, insisting that an artist isn't chosen until the film is completed.
The songwriter added: "I've heard the Adele rumors but nobody has been asked yet. Traditionally producers wait for the film to be made, or if I'm asked I'll have somebody in mind."
The composer also said that he has been speaking to Simon Cowell about a Bond-themed week for next year's X Factor competition.
David Arnold explained: "I've spoken to Simon about doing an X Factor Bond special before. We would love to try it but it's difficult finding the right Bond songs for people to sing."
Starring Daniel Craig as the iconic spy, the 23rd James Bond movie will be released on October 26, 2012.
