Winehouse Was Director's Favourite For Bond Theme

QUANTUM OF SOLACE director MARC FORSTER has confessed AMY WINEHOUSE was his top choice for the new JAMES BOND theme.
JACK WHITE and ALICIA KEYS eventually landed the job of writing and recording the coveted film theme, but Forster admits he always favoured Britain's troubled Rehab singer.
He tells WENN, "Amy Winehouse always wanted to write the song when I got involved and I felt that was a great idea because she's also from England, like Bond, and I felt she is such an interesting artist.
"Unfortunately she wasn't able to write the song and when I heard that Jack White was really into Bond movies, I was thrilled; I'm a big fan of his and The White Stripes. It was his idea to have this duet with Alicia Keys."
Winehouse actually started work on her Bond song with superproducer Mark Ronson, but the track was never completed.
Forster is now more than happy with the White/Keys tune, Another Way To Die: "It's not your traditional Bond song and that's what I liked about it because this is not your traditional Bond movie."

Dear Marc,I saw the latest 007 Bond and I really thought that the suit really sold the film and the black dress. Children walked out in the cinema and would not sit still they were really bored. I watch the film but I felt that you need a black british character like myself probably to play against Judi Dench. Judi Dench was terrific. Perhaps in your next bond film I could be the rivalry to MA'AM position but I am also a double spy. I teach acting and I am presently training with LAMDA to an examiner. I am 52 years of age.
