The petrol heads over at motoring ezine skiddmark recently conducted a comprehensive interview with Mr David Arnold, music composer for James Bond. Within the interview the composer gave some hints to his future involvement in the new James Bond movie, Bond 23. When asked if he was returning to score the new Bond film (currently on hiatus), Arnold reportedly replied:
“I would never presume anything, but I would be surprised if I wasn’t but prepared not to be just in case it happens! I mean, I don’t know when the next one’s going to be, we were supposed to be doing it next year but obviously we have to wait for the situation with MGM to settle down, so I think it’ll probably be the year after. Certainly we’ve been talking about it with that in mind – that I’d be doing it – and I’m still involved with other things with EON anyway, for example I’m in talks to do some things for the 50th anniversary…”
Arnold has recently produced a studio album for 3-time Bond song-mistress Shirley Bassey, dubbed (excuse the pun, Dame Shirley) The Performance.
