The film's team denies Muse were ever in the running for the 007 movie with their song 'Supremacy'.
Producers on the new James Bond movie Skyfall have denied reports that Muse's song 'Supermacy' was ever in the running for the role as theme tune of the movie.
Barbara Broccoli and Michael G Wilson told the Metro that Adele was the only artist on the pair's wish list.
"No, Adele was always our first choice," they told the publication when questioned about Muse's potential involvement.
The 'Rolling In The Deep' star had been linked with the theme since the end of 2011, and there were also recent reports that the late Amy Winehouse had penned a track for the film.
Wilson added: "She would have been great, wonderful."
"She's an enormous artist still today. It's a tragic ending to her life but she's with us forever," said Broccoli.
Adele's 'Skyfall' song hit the number one spot on the Vodafone Big Top 40 just days after it was released this month.
Meanwhile, the premiere of the movie will take place at the Royal Albert Hall in London this evening (23rd October) before hitting cinema screens around the country on Friday.
