Idris Elba Is Back in Talks to Be the Next James Bond

According to The Independent UK, Bond franchise producer Barbara Broccoli claims that the "door is open" for a Black James Bond once Daniel Craig abandons the role. During the conversation, Broccoli reportedly told Fuqua that "it is time" for a non-white actor to take the lead role, that she was certain it would "happen eventually", and that Elba was the front-runner.

With the transcendent, blockbuster success of big and small screen fare such as "Empire", "Power", Girls Trip and especially Black Panther, Hollywood is once again considering something that was unfathomable just a five years ago: a Black man playing the iconic spy hero James Bond.

He added: "Idris could do it if he was in shape".

The post says: " Fortnite is being rolled out for Android, with Samsung users getting first shot at playing the popular game". Concerning optics, the phone comes with a 12MP + 12MP "intelligent" dual-camera setup with dual optical image stabilisation.

Former Sony honcho Amy Pascal backed Elba for the role in 2014 in a leaked email, but the British actor has always shied away from discussing the prospect, and even suggested that a woman should replace Daniel Craig this year. You need a guy with physically strong presence.

While the future of Bond is uncertain, the next film in the franchise will be the anticipated Bond 25, which will also be Daniel Craig's final film in the vaunted role. I think he is probably a bit too "street" for Bond.

In the past, Elba, 45, hasn't shied away from the role, but maybe he's waiting to confirm the news until the deal is actually sealed instead of hearsay.

Anthony Horowitz, who was chosen by the Ian Fleming estate to write the book, told the Daily Mail: "Idris Elba is a terrific actor, but I can think of other black actors who would do it better".

"For me, Idris Elba is a bit too rough to play the part".
