The BBC News reports that Daniel Craig is now putting his support behind singer Amy Winehouse for the title theme to Quantum of Solace.
‘That would be fantastic,’ he said. ‘I am a huge fan of hers, and I don’t know what has been going on because I’ve been busy doing other things.’
Despite all the rumours that have persisted since late 2006 that Winehouse would be performing the title song to the 22nd James Bond film, it was confirmed last month by producer Mark Ronson that the two had come up with a ‘demo [that] sounds like a James Bond theme.’ This news was then quickly followed by reports that this specific track was unlikely to ever be finished because, in Ronson’s words, Winehouse was ‘not ready to work on music yet’.
Quantum of Solace director Marc Forster was recently questioned about the Winehouse situation at the Bregenz set in Austria. He refused to comment specifically on the singer, but did confirm a new search was under way. ‘We are looking, seeing what is out there. It’s a tricky one because it has to be right,’ he said.
Craig, however, remains hopeful: ‘It would be amazing if she could, she’s got an amazing voice and would blend herself beautifully to this. But…we’ll see.’
