According to sources close to producers of the James Bond movies, British singing sensation Amy Winehouse has been offered a role in the next film.

Her fiance, Blake Fielder-Civil, is probably thrilled.

The film’s producer, Barbara Broccoli, is reportedly keen on seeing Amy opposite Daniel Craig, even though Craig has stated (half seriously) that he’d like to see the next James Bond be gay.

Satsuki Mitchell had no comment on that statement.

Craig won rave reviews for his portrayal of the uber-cool British spy in Casino Royale last year, which featured a classic, retro feel different than the more recent Bond flicks.

A source said, “[Amy Winehouse] is perfect for the role because she’s the embodiment of the retro glamour of the original movies.”

No word on whether Lily Allen is also in the running, or whether Bond will be forced to save his latest love interest from anorexia and DUI arrests.
