James Bond: Door open for Idris Elba to be ‘first black 007’

Idris Elba,James Bond,Daniel Craig

Who would you like to see as the next 007?

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

The paper quoted Broccoli as saying that "it's time" for a non-white actor to fill the role once Craig completes his final film in the series, which is scheduled for release in 2019.

He was the Finals MVP in 2014 when the Spurs beat the Miami Heat in five games for the title. THANK YOU Pop I'll always be grateful for my growth under your guidance.


'Idris could do it if he was in shape, ' she revealed. You need a guy with a physically strong presence.

For starters, it seems a little odd that Fuqua is involved in this conversation, or that he discussed it at his new app's launch event. He would also be 47 when Bond 26, in theory, would begin filming.

Horowitz himself casued a media storm when he said Elba was "too street" for the role. Craig will play Bond one last time in the still untitled Bond 25 flick, although he has infamously tried to get out of the role in the past.

NFL Releases Statement After Three Dolphins Protest During Anthem
"Where we are now, I think it's just important that we keep this conversation going, that we don't let it get stagnant. Philadelphia Eagles players raise their fists during the national anthem prior to an NFL game in October 2017.


For some fans, that possibility is more than enough.

The discussion over who could play the next James Bond could be nearing it's conclusion, as the biggest clue yet has been dropped over the next actor's identity. "Happy New Year people", Elba wrote at the time. Bond 25 is being produced by Eon Productions with Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson producing. Elba addressed the rumors with humor tweeting back in December 2014. In one leaked email, Amy Pascal, who was the co-chairperson of Sony Pictures Entertainment at the time, told former Columbia Pictures vice president Elizabeth Cantillon that "Idris should be the next Bond". "Idris has that", the director added.
