James Bond producers eyeing Idris Elba as next 007

James Bond producers eyeing Idris Elba as next 007

His name has been in the running for several years to play the most famous secret agent in film - but it looks like Idris Elba may well scoop the role of his career, according to recent reports.

With Daniel Craig set to make his fifth and final appearance as James Bond in next year's as-yet-untitled Bond 25 from director Danny Boyle, the rumour mill appears to be wasting little time in looking towards his replacement as 007. Fuqua said the move "will happen eventually" and Elba is reportedly the first choice to take on the role.

"Idris Elba is one of the finest men on the planet".

His center was the target of Israeli air attacks last month and in September, the Observatory added. In a similar report, Syria's al-Watan said that Israel's Mossad was behind Asbar's assassination.


There's also the fact that neither Broccoli or Fuqua explicitly stated that Elba will 100-percent, without a shadow of a doubt play James Bond in the future.

"Idris could do it if he was in shape".

Idris Elba, star of stage and screen both in the United Kingdom and U.S., has had the door opened for him by franchise producer Barbara Broccoli, according to Training Day director Antoine Fuqua.

Say Maryland's Kevin Huerter, for example, didn't get drafted in the first two rounds - he'd be able to play for the Terps again. This new rule aims to help highly touted high school players "make informed decisions about going pro".


Elba has been a favourite to replace Daniel Craig since talk of him taking over the role began in 2014, after leaked documents from the Sony hack revealed co-chair of the company Amy Pascal put him forward. You need a guy with a physically strong presence.

Other Black British actors who have been linked with the part include John Boyega, and David Oyelowo (who has actually voiced the character in audiobook form). "It could be a woman - could be a black woman, could be a white woman - but I think, that character, everybody would like to see it have...do something different with it, why not?"

However, Elba once insisted that no one is genuinely considering him to play 007.
