Steven Spielberg: Idris Elba Should Be the Next James Bond


Steven Spielberg says Idris Elba should become the next James Bond.f

The legendary director, Steven Spielberg, has voiced his approval for Idris Elba to become the next actor to play James Bond. He told reporters during a recent interview with the UK’s Express, where he declared himself a major fan of the 007 franchise. He also revealed that he’s very eager to see a black James Bond one day, preferably in the next movie. “I think Idris would be my first choice of Bond if Daniel decides not to come back,” Spielberg told The Express.

According to The Express, James Bond producers are very eager to work out a deal with Daniel Craig, and have reportedly pushed the next movie’s release to 2018 to give him more time to make a decision.

Based on Daniel Craig’s comments so far, it seems very unlikely that he will be making a return. But then again, money speaks louder than words. If he does decide to leave, though, the door appears to be wide open for Elba.

It’s pretty amazing that a major Hollywood actor like Steven Spielberg wants to see Idris Elba play James Bond, a character that has traditionally gone to white British actors. Sadly, audiences may not always approve. In fact, when he was announced to play Roland in The Dark Tower, fans bashed him. But, at the end of the day Idris Elba didn’t let that bother him.

Here’s hoping that casting directors decide to cast Idris Elba for the next James Bond movie.
