British rock star Noel Gallagher has revealed he would write a James Bond movie theme "in a heartbeat", but doubts he'll be given the chance

Noel Gallagher would write a James Bond movie theme "in a heartbeat".

The 47-year-old rocker, who's best known as the former lead guitarist and writer for British band Oasis, has revealed he'd be thrilled to record the iconic tune for the new Bond movie 'Spectre', but doesn't think he's a big enough star for the job.

Asked if he'd be interested in recording the song, Noel told N-TV: "I would do it if I was asked. I would do it in a heartbeat.

"And I could do it and it would be great, but I'm not a star and for that you have to be a big star. You have to be someone in America."

Noel was linked to the theme for the 2012 movie 'Skyfall', but subsequently described the speculation as "bizarre".

The role was ultimately handed to London-born singer Adele, while for the new Bond movie, the likes of Sam Smith, Lorde and Lana Del Rey have all been linked to the part.

The eagerly-awaited new film will see Daniel Craig play the part of Bond for the fourth time whilst Ben Whishaw, Ralph Fiennes and Rory Kinnear will all reprise their roles from 'Skyfall'.

James Bond (Craig) comes up against a global crime syndicate, while back at home, the 00 programme is under threat from reckless moderniser C (Scott). With its swagger, dry humour and frequent, well-executed action it's a solid crowdpleaser, but the story is predictable, the characterisation is thin and overall it lacks…
