According to the Atlanta Voice, the producers of the James Bond films are speaking about the possibility of Idris Elba becoming 007. And it may not be exactly what you want to hear.
During a recent visit to The Shop, Elba talked about the opportunity and said, “I don’t think playing Bond will satisfy some of my personal goals. I feel it is beyond me at this juncture.”
Producers of the franchise, Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson seem to agree with Elba and offer more insight. Barbara said during an interview with Variety. “We love Idris. The thing is it’s going to be a couple of years off. When we cast bond it’s a 10, 12-year commitment so he’s probably thinking, ‘Do I really want that thing?'”
