Idris Elba back in the running for Bond

Kate Oates

In the correspondence, which was released during the massive Sony hack that year, the then-studio co-chair Amy Pascal said to a colleague: 'Idris should be the next Bond'.

Idris Elba's filmography proves that he can play any role he damn well wants to. It has now been reported that Luther and Star Trek: Beyond actor Idris Elba is in the running for the role. However, given the length of time it took the actor to be confirmed in the role and the fact that he has played Bond for well over a decade now, it seems unlikely that he will be back for a sixth film. "The London-born actor, 45, has both the appearance (he's 6'3") and cool charm to pull off the role. "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?"

Several actress have been tipped to play the Bond role in the past, with X Files star Gillian Anderson being shunted to the forefront of speculation after a fan tweeted a convincing poster of her as Bond in 2016.

Bond 25 is scheduled to be released in North Amercian theaters on November 8, 2019, with a United Kingdom release scheduled for October 25, 2019.

According to multiple reports, Equalizer 2 director Antoine Fuqua recently met with Bond producer Barbara Broccoli and talked about the franchise, presumably because his own name has come up before in connection with directing future instalments. MGM will distribute the film domestically while Universal Pictures will handle global distribution.
