Susan Boyle

may be in the running to record the next James Bond theme song. The Scottish star is said to be thrilled at the prospect of being chosen for the film, which is due out in 2011.

Monty Norman, composer of the classic 007 theme music, thinks Susan would be a “great” choice. “They’ll think seriously because she’s got the right kind of sweeping voice,” he said. Lee Pfeiffer co-author of The Essential James Bond book, described Susan as “a throwback to those great days when the likes of Dame Shirley Bassey would be asked to sing.”

Some of the world’s biggest music stars have recorded Bond theme songs including Bassey, Sir Paul McCartney, and Duran Duran.

The 48-year-old Boyle has already shattered chart records with her debut album “I Dreamed a Dream.” The LP sold an astonishing 411,000 copies in the UK in one week and over 2 million copies worldwide - making it the fastest-selling debut album by a woman ever. It is still clocking up sales at an incredible rate.
