Daniel Day Lewis is wanted for the role of James Bond.

The Oscar-winning actor is being eyed by author William Boyd, who claims he would be perfect to play the MI6 agent in a film adaption of his new Bond novel, 'Solo', which he claims is written in the style of original 007 author IAN FLEMING.

He told The Independent newspaper: ''If there was going to be an actor to play my James Bond, I'd choose another actor who's been in a film of mine and who is also called Daniel.

''Daniel Day-Lewis actually resembles the Bond that Fleming describes. He was a tall, lean, rangy, very dark-haired, good-looking man. There's a sense that image is what he saw his Bond looking like.''

Boyd also believes modern Bond films - which currently stars Daniel Craig - are moving ''further away'' from the characters depicted in Flemings novel.

He mused: ''The current Bond is fantastically interesting even though the current films are half a century on than the novels. The link gets fainter and fainter. The Bond films are all contemporary.''

'Solo' - which was released on Wednesday (25.09.13) - is published by Jonathan Cape, Fleming's original publisher and comes 60 years since 'Casino Royale' was first released.
