Duran Duran keyboard player Nick Rhodes has revealed that his band would like the opportunity to tackle the new James Bond theme with Mark Ronson.

Speaking to the Daily Mirror, the keyboardist said it was an ambition of theirs to work with the super-producer on the tune for 'Quantum Of Solace'.

"We'd love to collaborate with Mark on a single for the next Bond film," he said.

It wouldn't be the first time the band have soundtracked a Bond flick - they previously contributed the theme to the fictional spy's 1985 outing, 'A View To A Kill'.

"With him [Ronson] we may even surpass 'A View To A Kill'", Rhodes told the newspaper.

Duran Duran met Ronson in Paris, where they are set to play a gig together. Watch video footage from behind the scenes at the gig's rehearsal by clicking on the video below.
