Noel Gallagher is reportedly in talks to write and perform the theme tune to the upcoming James Bond film, Skyfall, which is due to be released next year.
The former Oasis guitarist and song-writer, whose recent appearance on The Late Show With David Letterman can be seen above, is the latest Brit to be linked with the coveted role of theme tune performer, with Adele also recently rumoured to be in talks with film producers. A ‘source’ told The Sun newspaper that Gallagher is set to meet producers over the coming days to “talk about potentially writing and performing the song for next year’s new Bond film. Nothing is signed or official, it’s just being discussed at the moment.”
Initial reports suggested a previously unreleased Oasis track called ‘Freaky Teeth’ could be in line to soundtrack Skyfall, which Gallagher had previous referred to as ideal for a Bond theme:
“I listened back to it thinking, ‘That’d make a fucking great Bond theme. It’s a bit of a piss-take that the greatest British agent of all time has to be soundtracked by a bunch of Americans.”
Who do you think should be in charge of the soundtrack? Is Noel a good choice? let us know your thoughts in the comments below…
