Idris Elba linked to James Bond AGAIN amid producer's comments

Fans of James Bond really really want Idris

Director Antoine Fuqua chatted to Barbara about who will take over from Daniel Craig, 50, if he hangs up his gun after the next Bond film, due next year. Back in 2014, Sony's then-studio chair Amy Pascal told a colleague that "Idris [Elba] should be the next Bond". There's also the fact that Elba plans to follow up his directorial debut Yardie with an amibitious adaptation of The Hunchback of Notre Dame, as actor, director, producer and musician - so he may well be too busy for Bond. It has now been reported that Luther and Star Trek: Beyond actor Idris Elba is in the running for the role.

Last August, Craig had revealed he would return to the iconic role one last time, having previously played Bond four times: Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace, Skyfall, and Spectre. "The London-born actor, 45, has both the appearance (he's 6'3") and cool charm to pull off the role.

Speaking to Vanity Fair, he said: 'It could be a woman - could be a black woman, could be a white woman, ' he said. And now, it appears a turn as James Bond is in Elba's future.

EON Productions" Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli told Deadline this month: "We are delighted to announce that the exceptionally talented Danny Boyle will be directing Daniel Craig in his fifth outing as James Bond in the 25th instalment of the franchise. MGM will distribute the film domestically while Universal Pictures will handle worldwide distribution.
