It’s inevitable. With every new James Bond film comes an almost unbearable bunch of nonsense rumours as to who’ll be performing the title theme.
In recent years, it seems like everyone has been mentioned to be ‘in talks’ at one point or another. The list includes such artists as Pink, Eminem, Ginger Spice, Dido, Robbie Williams, and more recently–specifically for the current 007 production–The Killers and Amy Winehouse.
While The Killers managed to shut down the unfounded discussion surrounding them back in December 2006, the Winehouse rumour seems to be brought up again and again and again.
In an article at Showbiz Spy, Daniel Craig finally spoke out: ‘Why is everybody ramming [the name] Amy Winehouse out,’ he said. ‘It’s just way, way off that.’
‘Everyone’s speculating about it but we’ve got other things to deal with–there’s no point in writing the song for a movie when we haven’t got a movie.’
Being (roughly) only a month into principal photography on Quantum of Solace, Craig is likely referring to the fact that the title theme performer announcement won’t come until much later.
In the case of 2006’s Casino Royale, Chris Cornell wasn’t offcially confirmed until late July of that year.
