Winehouse Says "Yes, Yes, Yes" to Bond Theme

Amy Winehouse may have said "no, no, no" to rehab (until recently, anyway), but she's saying "yes, yes, yes" to a song for the next James Bond movie, Quantum of Solace. The Guardian is reporting that Winehouse is "working on the theme song" with Mark Ronson, who also produced her Back to Black album.

White Stripe Writes Song of Solace

White Stripe Writes Song of Solace Finally some good news from the set of the latest 007 movie. Alicia Keys and Jack White are set to record the theme song for the 23rd James Bond film, Quantum of Solace. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the duo will make history by performing the first Bond song duet. It's not as impressive as Sheena Easton's history making appearance in For Your Eyes Only -- she remains the only singer to appear onscreen to serenade Mr. Bond's credits--but it'll have to do. I'll reverse that opinion if Jack White delivers a credible Shirley Bassey imitation. After all, she's the queen of Bond themes.

Updates: Bronte, Bond, and Beyond

Updates: Bronte, Bond, and Beyond

Bronte: Fresh from London via the Hollywood Reporter comes news of Natalie Portman's departure from Wuthering Heights. As mentioned last month in the Moviefile, Portman had been tapped for the role of Cathy Earnshaw in John Maybury's adaptation of Emily Bronte's brooding novel of love, revenge, and having the hots for your stepbrother. No reason was given for her splitting from the film, but according to the news, Portman's sudden exit left "financiers, sellers and producers" in a bit of a pickle this close to the Festival de Cannes, where the movie was supposed to be sold. Coincidentally, Portman is on the Feature Film Jury at the Festival, so they're bound to run into each other now and then. Awkward! But Maybury is saying that the English role should go to an Englishwoman, so maybe they did mean to hire Keira Knightley in the first place, after all.
