Audioslave to do new Bond theme?

Recommended Posts

...as reported in a Finnish tabloid -

http://www.iltasanomat.fi/viihde/uutinen.asp?id=1206226

Here's the translation -

Audioslave singer and songwriter Chris Cornell has made the theme song of the upcoming James Bond movie Casino Royale.

"I have written the new Bond theme song and I will perform it too", Cornell confessed to IS.

Production company hasnt revealed yet the composer of the theme song, but Cornell revealed the thing for the first time while being interviewed by Ilta-Sanomat.

- I havent seen the new Bond fully, because it is still being edited, but I have seen several clips of it. Absolutely amazing movie. Very different than earlier Bonds, said Cornell enthusiastically [sic].

Songs written by Chris Cornell have been heard during the years in several blockbusters as in Singles, Collateral Damage, Great Expectations and True Romance.

Casino Royale premieres in the US in November. Casino Royale is the 21st Bond movie, and it presents as a new James Bond British actor Daniel Craig.

I'v just got visions of the traditional james bond intro with Bond walking into the 'eye frame' and shooting his gun towards the screen, only for a thunderous Morello riff to crank out! That would be worth the price of a cinema ticket alone!

just heard on Radio 1 that Chris Cornell - not Audioslave' date=' so no Morello riff! - has been confirmed as doing the Bond theme![/quote']

Gah! All my dreams shattered in one go! Never mind. On a serious note I picked up Cornell's solo album for a fiver the other week, and it's very good. Totally different from soundgarden but a good quiet album.

What the fuck is going on here? This is the kind of thing that happens in my dreams when I drink too much and fall asleep half naked on the couch with the TV on.

Is this real?
