  • Idris Elba James Bond

Back in 2014 when the Sony hacks happened, it was revealed that Sony brass was throwing his name into the ring.

It seems James Bond producer Barbara Broccoli is very keen in casting Luther and Thor star Idris Elba as the superspy in future movies. And according to new reports from The Independent, key members of the Bond production team really want to see Elba join the franchise as well. And, of course, we're sure to be inundated with rumours about possible contenders in the lead up to the announcement.

"The one thing I've heard around the world universally is that, 'You'll be great at James Bond!'. Idris Elba as Bond I gotta see though!" others had their reservations, especially when it came to the actor's age.

While the news of Elba taking the role has not been confirmed, a report by CNN refutes the comments made by Fuqua. You need a guy with some weight, like a physically strong presence, like some power.

It appears as if producer Barbara Broccoli is indeed considering Idris as Daniel Craig's Bond successor, at least according to Antoine Fuqua (The Magnificent Seven, The Equalizer, Southpaw).

This week was interesting also because, after several months, banking stocks showed some life, particularly SBI and ICICI Bank . Washington "must give up the misguided notion that our relationship can be asymmetrical", he said in the opinion piece.

Elba recently spoke to the Press Association about his next role, where he will be playing Quasimodo.

Daniel Boyle is set to direct Daniel Craig's last outing as 007, which is scheduled for release on 25 October.

"You start off as the Bond girl, and then you think it's just the girlfriend and then you're like, 'She's actually [Bond].' In the trailer, it's him and then [there's a] bait and switch", she added.

As reported by NME, the upcoming James Bond film will be directed by Danny Boyle of "Trainspotting" fame. It could be a woman - could be a black woman, could be a white woman. In 2013, Idris Elba ranked No. 2 in People's annual Sexiest Man Alive list.
