Idris Elba, star of stage and screen both in the United Kingdom and U.S., has had the door opened for him by franchise producer Barbara Broccoli, according to Training Day director Antoine Fuqua.
Daniel Craig will be reprising his role as the spy in the next installment of James Bond, but bosses are now hinting that Idris Elba could be next to take up the mantel.
Yet, rumor or not, people online seem pretty excited about the idea. 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. It has now been reported that Luther and Star Trek: Beyond actor Idris Elba is in the running for the role. "Idris could do it if he was in shape", Fuqua told the newspaper.
Ever since Daniel Craig confirmed the upcoming movie will be his last time on Her Majesty's secret service everyone has been desperate to know who will take over.

Twitter user @wordtoJude felt this news was a long time coming - "IVE BEEN ASKING FOR THIS FOR YEARS. Idris has that", the director added. "Could be a woman, could be a black woman, could be a white woman, but I think, that character, everybody would like to see it have - do something different with it, why not?"
