Film bosses are eager for the star to bring more success to the famous franchise.

James Bond producers are eager to get Adele to sing the theme tune for the next installment of the 007 franchise, it's been reported.

The star's recent theme for 'Skyfall' has proved a critical hit, winning Best Song at the Oscars last month. It followed wins for 'Skyfall' at the BRIT Awards and Golden Globes.

According to The Sun, bosses want Adele to become as synonymous with the Bond franchise as Dame Shirley Bassey, whose James Bond hits include 'Goldfinger' and 'Diamonds Are Forever'.

"Producers are thrilled by how well the song has been received and hope Adele's presence on the next film will replicate that success," a source said.

Adele gave birth to her first child last year and has so far given no indication of when she plans to make a return to music.

Following her triumph at the Oscars, her most recent album, '21', has enjoyed yet another sales boost.

The record has already become the fourth biggest-selling in British history.
