Winehouse Dumped From Bond Theme
British soul diva AMY WINEHOUSE won't be singing the theme to the next JAMES BOND movie after bosses chose a Finnish rocker instead. The 24-year-old soul diva had been hotly tipped to record the title track to the follow-up to Casino Royale - but 007 bosses have since changed their minds. Longtime Bond soundtrack writers David Arnold and Don Black are now said to have approached Ville Valo, lead singer of metal band HIM, to record the theme instead. The 30-year-old rocker was approached by the Bond team at the BMI awards on Tuesday (16Oct07) where he was honoured for his hit Wings Of A Butterfly. A source told British newspaper the Daily Star, "David Arnold and Don Black were in deep conversation with Ville on the night. "They love the song that won him an award. They think he has just the right ear to write a classic Bond hit with them."
