Rock veterans U2 are being tapped as the frontrunners to record the theme song for the new James Bond flick Casino Royale.

Producer Barbara Broccoli said that U2 are teh favourites to record the theme, although Tina Turner is also believed to be in the running.

Turner previously performed the theme to Goldeneye, which was actually written by U2's Bono and The Edge.

"David Arnold will be composing the soundtrack but we have not yet chosen who is doing the song," Broccoli said. "I think U2 are great. Bono actually wrote the song for Goldeneye but Tina Turner performed it."

I hope it is half as good a song as Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me.

Kiss by a Grail by Seal won that year.

Maybe Bono can play OddJob2 in the Flick.

That would be awesome, but do you think it'll actually happen now that they're on hiatus or whatever?

Let's hope this is true, I love all the songs they've done for movies. "Hands that Built America", "Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me"?
