Daniel Craig wants Ed Sheeran for Bond 25 theme
Directed by Cary Fukunaga, Bond 25 is set to be released in April 2020
Daniel Craig is once again taking on the role of the spy James Bond in the upcoming 25th instalment of the franchise, which is yet to get an official title. The actor reportedly wants pop singer Ed Sheeran to perform the theme tune of the movie.
A source said, "Daniel was introduced to Ed's music by his daughter Ella. She loves Ed, and Daniel now really likes his music and wants Ed for the theme tune." But the makers are also eyeing Adele, who performed the theme to 2012's Skyfall.
"Daniel is not just the lead actor of the film, but also one of the producers, so he has huge sway over every decision. Ed translates more to a younger generation, while Adele is more across all ages. Other artists are also under consideration," added the source.
Bond 25 is set to be released on April 2020, and is being directed by Cary Fukunaga, with a cast including Rami Malek, Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw, Léa Seydoux, and Ralph Fiennes.
