Musician and producer Dave Sitek has offered to provide the music for the next James Bond film.

Sitek, who earlier this year produced Beady Eye's second album 'BE', posted a tweet this morning in which he offered up his time and services and also suggested that actor Idris Elba should take on the iconic 007 role.




Aside from potential film soundtracks, Sitek is currently working on his new record label Federal Prism, which is home to Kelis, Scarlett Johansson and TV On The Radio. Earlier this year TV On The Radio frontman Tunde Adebimpe confirmed the band have returned to the studio and started working on their next album

The band last released an album in 2011 with all of the members leading productive musical lives away from the band. However, as confirmed by Adebimpe, the four of them recently reunited in New York and began working on "less precious" new songs

It was revealed earlier this year that director Sam Mendes will return to helm the 24th Bond film after the success of last year's 007 outing Skyfall. The flick, which starred Daniel Craig and Javier Bardem, has now become the most successful Bond film ever at the box office, grossing over $1.1 billion (£720 million) worldwide.

Meanwhile, Elba has spoken out again about rumours linking him with the role of James Bond. The actor, who has starred in acclaimed TV series The Wire and Luther and also appears in the forthcoming biopic Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom, has long been discussed as a potential replacement for Daniel Craig when he leaves the 007 franchise.
