According to The Sun, the I’m Not The Only One singer is in talks with movie bosses to perform the soundtrack for the next 007 flick, Bond 24, which is due for release next year.
A source at studio MGM told the tabloid: “Sam is our top choice. He has the profile, cool image and astonishing voice to record a Bond theme.
“And there is only so long we can hold out for Adele. Daniel Craig was pushing for her because she did such a great job last time around.”
They added: “But from her perspective, how can she better what she did with Skyfall? She won an Oscar, Bafta, Golden Globe and had a global number one.”
Bosses believe it would be great to have a British male vocalist perform the tune, with Smith enjoying huge success with his debut album In The Lonely Hour on both sides of the Atlantic.
