The Killers for next Bond theme?

Bond soundtrack composer David Arnold has revealed he is keen to work with the Killers for a future film in the blockbuster series.

In an interview with Q Radio, the soundtrack maestro said the production team were “very fortunate” to get Jack White with the theme for A Quantum Of Solace – Another Way To Die – on which The Raconteurs and White Stripes stars performs with Alicia Keys.

The composer said he had made early enquiries with The Killers a couple of years ago about working on a Bond theme and he would love to revive the idea. “

We were talking around about the time of Casino Royale … at that time they were working on their second album in Las Vegas. I always feel to a certain extent that when you’re choosing an artist for a Bond movie, you’re trying to find someone that could almost be in the film & belong to that world, and I think they certainly do. They’ve done amazing records,” he told presenter Paul Rees.

David Leigh founded The James Bond Dossier in 2002. A fan of 007 since the age of 8, he is also author of The Complete Guide to the Drinks of James Bond. You can order a copy here if you don't own it already.
