Noel Gallagher to pen Bond theme?

Noel is in the running to record the theme for the latest Bond movie 'Skyfall'.

Reports suggest the former Oasis star is on the shortlist of potential artists and is supposedly meeting with movie bosses to discuss ideas.

A source told The Sun: "They're going to talk about potentially writing and performing the song for next year's new Bond film. Nothing is signed or official, it's just being discussed at the moment."

Gallagher says that he's keen for a British artist to have the honour as previous themes were written by the likes of Madonna, Jack White and Chris Cornell.

He added, "It's a bit of a p***-take that the greatest British agent of all time has to be soundtracked by a bunch of Americans."

However, Noel does face some competition as chart-topper Adele has also been linked with the coveted role.
