London - David Arnold wants Queen to perform the next James Bond theme.
The composer - who has penned the soundtracks for the iconic spy's last five cinematic outings - thinks the veteran rockers could produce a "bombastic" track for Skyfall, though he believes their music would have been better suited to some of the earlier movies in the franchise.
He told the Daily Star newspaper: "I'm a massive Queen fan and I would love them to do a theme tune.
"Imagine how ridiculously bombastic a Queen anthem could be. It's a shame because they would have been perfect for Roger Moore's Bond during the 80s when he was punching clowns."
Adele has previously been rumoured to be recording the theme song for Skyfall, which will see Daniel Craig play Bond for the third time.
However, David insisted she has not been approached.
He said: "I've heard the Adele rumours but nobody has been asked yet.
"Traditionally producers wait for the film to be made, or if I'm asked I'll have somebody in mind."
If Queen - whose frontman Freddie Mercury died in 1991 - were to record the theme song, there is a possibility Lady Gaga could sing it for them after guitarist Brian May recently revealed they want to collaborate with the Bad Romance hitmaker.
He said: "We still hope to do something with Gaga in the future. We've been close to doing something for TV before - she is an inspiration."
