Idris Elba Has Met With Producers About Playing JAMES BOND

With Skyfall reported to be Daniel Craig's best outing yet as 007 the actor is far from done with James Bond. However, that hasn't stopped the Broccolli family from looking to the future it seems.


Naomie Harris, one of the stars of Skyfall has let slip that the guiding force behind the Bond franchise is already meeting with potential Daniel Craig replacements. The actress confirmed that Idris Elba met with Bond producer Barbara Broccoli regarding the role.

In case you don't know who the Broccolli's are, back in 1964, Albert "Cubby" Broccoli produced the first film adaptation of Ian Fleming's James Bond series and the Broccolli family has controlled the franchise ever since---every script, director and lead actor needs their approval. So news that Idris Elba has met with one of the members of that family, Barbara Broccolli, means that things may be trending upward when it comes to his chances of playing James Bond although he'll have to wait a while as Craig has signed on for 2 more installment in the franchise.

"I didn't realize that there was this talk [about a black Bond], and then I did a film with Idris, and he said that he met Barbara Broccoli," Harris told The Huffington Post.

"And that it does seem like there is a possibility in the future that there could very well be a black James Bond. And I would have to vote for Idris because I just finished working with him and he's a great guy."

Elba has previously stated that he'd be honored to play the part if it comes my way."

Also reportedly eyeing the role or at least discussing the possibility are Michael Fassbender, Hugh Jackman, Tom Hardy and Christopher Nolan as director. Keep in mind that it's unclear at the moment whether they've only met with Elba or if they've had several preliminary meeting with interested parties.

Skyfall opens November 9th in the U.S.
