Mark Ronson wants to record the next Bond theme with Amy Winehouse. The producer-and-DJ is a huge fan of the spy films and has jokingly warned close friend Amy - who he worked with on several tracks on her hit album Back To Black - he will end their friendship if he doesn't produce her Bond song.
He told XFM radio: "It's my dream to produce a song for a James Bond film so I told Amy that if she gets offered the Bond thing then she'd better let me produce the song, or I'll never talk to her again!"
Amy, 23, is being lined up to record the theme for the next 007 adventure, tentatively titled Bond 22, by composer David Arnold. Arnold, who composed the last three Bond songs, loves the Rehab singer's husky voice and thinks she would the perfect choice to lend her vocals to the next title track. He said: "Amy Winehouse made the best record of last year. I haven't asked her yet but I think she'd be good, although Bond songs can be a bit of a war zone. "The next film will be in 2008 and we're almost finished with the script. The books are all done now so this one is going to be an extension of what happens to Bond, continuing the story from 'Casino Royale'."
