Rumours have been circulating about Idris Elba taking up the mantle as 007 for a while now, however in the past few hours Esquire released an article stating that Bond's producers are heavily interested in Elba and looking for him to continue the saga after Daniel Craig's final outing supposedly in 2020.
The Independent, a news source revealed that "Director Antoine Fuqua revealed the details of a conversation with Bond producer Barbara Broccoli, in which she said "it is time" for a non-white actor to take on the iconic role. Fuqua discussed who might be next in the running with Broccoli, who's certain the progressive move "will happen eventually", with Idris Elba a reported frontrunner for the role."
But could Elba hold the mantle after Craig? What do you think he would bring to the table. Would he take a more gritty tone similar to that of Craig based upon his works in Luther or could we see a return to the suave, sexy Bond made famous by the originals such as Pierce Brosnan OBE and Sir Roger Moore.
Only time will tell, but what do you think?
