"The 'Idris Elba for James Bond" conversation has been rumbling on for years now - always in speculative terms, with lashings of wish fulfillment, skepticism, and no clear indication from Elba himself that he even wants to take on the legendary spy.
"It is time....it will happen eventually.""Idris could do it if he was in shape", Fuqua said. You need a guy with physically strong presence. And after years of fan demand, it appears that Elba may finally have to start ordering his martini's shaken, not stirred.
The Independent say that producers are "leaning toward" the English actor for the role of James Bond when Daniel Craig vacates it - which will be after the next Danny Boyle-directed outing.
Eon Productions, maker of the James Bond films, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Bond 25 is scheduled to be released in North Amercian theaters on November 8, 2019, with a United Kingdom release scheduled for October 25, 2019. MGM will distribute the film domestically while Universal Pictures will handle worldwide distribution.
