Former Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr is set to work with Hollywood composer Hans Zimmer on the music for the upcoming James Bond film, No Time To Die.

Marr has previously worked with Zimmer, one of Hollywood's most renowned composers, on a number of films including Inception and The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

Speaking about their latest partnership, Marr told NME: "Part of the legacy of the Bond films is iconic music, so I'm very happy to be bringing my guitar to No Time To Die."

Zimmer is hard at work on the score ahead of No Time To Die's April release and said his close friendship with Bond producer Barbara Broccoli led to his involvement with the film.

"I never thought I would do this," Zimmer told PA.

"I honestly never thought about it other than that Barbara Broccoli is a really dear friend, I just love her as a human being, very much."

Zimmer was confirmed as composer of the score earlier this month following the departure of Dan Romer, who reportedly left over creative differences.
