Adele To Sing Bond Theme Again?

By: Peggy Truong / March 3, 2013

James Bond franchise turns 50 as Adele releases new theme song.
One week after taking Oscar home, Adele is still making big headlines — all thanks to the name James Bond.

The Sun is reporting that the 24-year-old singer has been tapped to sing for the next 007 picture starring Daniel Craig, a move that would get her one step closer to matching Dame Shirley Bassey’s Bond career.

“Producers are thrilled by how well the song has been received and hope Adele’s presence on the next film will replicate that success,” producers told the paper.

Bassey, who also performed at last week’s Academy Awards in a tribute to the film franchise, was the voice behind theme songs for Goldfinger, Diamonds Are Forever and Moonraker.

Adele’s “Skyfall” for the film of the same name won the Oscar for Best Original Song, bringing her halfway to the coveted EGOT status (for stars who have won an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony).

On Sunday, the singer shared words of gratitude on Twitter after arriving home in England.

“…and we’re home! What an epic trip. Thanks for having us Hollywood!” she wrote, along with a picture of her Oscar and a mini statue with the words “Best Son.”
