James Bond Producers Interested In Idris Elba To Play 007

UK PRESS  GETTY
        NEVER SAY NEVER Elba

Daniel Craig has one more go at playing James Bond, to which he has publicly expressed his discontent, but who will take over the titular role as 007 once Craig's final film is done? During the conversation, Broccoli reportedly told Fuqua that "it is time" for a non-white actor to take the lead role, that she's was certain it would "happen eventually", and that Elba was the front-runner. Elba's name first came up in 2014 during the Sony hack, when leaked emails from then studio co-chair Amy Pascal revealed Elba as everyone's favourite to replace Daniel Craig. 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.

Either way, it's going to be a while before a new Bond is announced - Boyle's Craig-starring film is set to begin shooting soon for a November 2019 release, and it would be reasonable to expect that the next actor for the role won't be announced until several months after that. 'Do something different with it. And now, it appears a turn as James Bond is in Elba's future.

'We will begin shooting Bond 25 at Pinewood Studios in December with our partners at MGM and thrilled that Universal will be our global distributor.

Universal Pictures also won the global distribution rights to the film, which will drop in the United Kingdom first on October 25, 2019.

Speaking in 2015, when asked about returning to the role, Craig told the Guardian: 'Now? No, not at the moment. We're done. All I want to do is move on'.
