Sony Considering Idris Elba as Next James Bond

Posted: December 20th, 2014 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Sony Considering Idris Elba as Next James BondSubmit Comment
After Daniel Craig was cast as James Bond in "Casino Royale," there were immediate talks of who would replace the actor after his contract runs out. And it seems that most rumors pointed at Idris Elba, who even had the support of Craig.

While Elba definitely has what it takes to be James Bond, he would be the first black actor to ever take on the role and it was unlikely that Sony Pictures would ever consider that. Apparently things have changed.

According to an email from January 4th, Sony Pictures chairman Amy Pascal told Columbia Pictures vice president of production Elizabeth Cantillon that "Idris should be the next bond."

At this point, Craig will return for "Spectre," which is set to hit theaters on November 6th, 2015. He's then obligated to return for one more. After that, however, it may be Elba's turn.

Elba can play Bond when Jake Gyllenhaal can play Shaft.

If Elba were white he would have been cast as Bond a long time ago. Every thing about him is perfect the role. It has nothing tondo with political correctness but He just happens to be so well fit for it, he just happens to be a black britt.

But I knew this would puss MINK off . Well to bad the same whites that will be offended by this are the same who defended the white washing of that movie "Exodus" and "The Last Airbender". And both of those films bombed hard!

He's already 42 years old,by the time they finish with Craig and make a new bond he'll be edging 50.

Forget about it.

and what does he have,Alex ? why don't you elaborate your gay black sexual fantasies ? Triggax is dying to know.

"He's already 42 years old,by the time they finish with Craig and make a new bond he'll be edging 50."

Exactly.

Five years from now this controversy-c*m-fracas will be completely forgotten, just like Elba's sh*tty, stillborn career as "that smooth-talking n*gger from Britain".

The idiotic racism is strong in this thread.

Pierce Brosnan was about 42 when he was filming Goldeneye.

Daniel Craig was 37 whilst filming Casino Royale and is 46 now while filming SPECTRE and will be nearly 50 when he shoots his final Bond film.

If Idris Elba is 45-46 in his first Bond film it's not a problem.

He would be a good James Bond.

Bryce Dallas Howard is a redhead/ginger like her Dad Ron Howard. Not an Albino.

So let's just make everything black now. Even the ocean maybe even oxygen itself.


What is the need to make everything f*cking black in Hollywood more like blackywood. Or blacks get paid less wood.

There will at some point be a black Bond but not now.
If Sony do this they can kiss the franchise goodbye.

Bryce is a red head?? I am flabbergasted. My eyes have now been opened. Thank you for this undoubtedly titillating discovery. You sir are a first class scholar. We should report this groundbreaking observation to the highest level of academia and media immediately!

Good one (especially the Sarah J Parker line).

@Deaft0ne - don't think it's about racism ...well it might be in some cases, but it's about tradition and being true to the characters and even the fans !
I don't understand the need to change characters just to please ethnic groups or gender - what's next ? A female Jamie Bond because it's almost 2015 and women can be badasses as well, see where I'm getting at !
If this world is in lack of black secret agents or superhero's, writers should get up their lazy asses and start developing new characters( and keep them coloured-not change them into white dudes all of a sudden) .

@BJ

Avirex continues to showcase just how much of a f*cking idiot he truly is with his flaccid misdirection 101 post.

Idris Elba as James Bond would be cool. He is a great actor and would bring a lot to the character. Put the KKK hood away because no one cares for your racist sh*t.

@Deaft0ne - Agree to disagree !
Elba IS a good actor , but think he is wrong for this project, again NOT about racism -Just don't see it !!
Have been a Bond fan ever since 1984 or something like that and this character means a lot in my book !!

Idris Elba is really good as a copper in John Luther, he's really great and that's why I bought the 3 series.

Now, he can't be an MI6 agent Becaauuuuuuuuuse Ian Fleming imagined him as White! Shocking isn't it?

Now, hurry the f*ck up finishing series 4!

Sony has no say over casting major roles. They objected to half the casting of Skyfall, but EON stuck to their guns. For Sony to have any say in who plays 007 they would have to buy out EON... but that's not going to happen.

This thread discussion has been done before...

Last I posted was Bond will not be accepted, too drastic a change. The box office will be proof of this...

But they could revamp Shaft...make him international. Apart from the sh*tty plot, Sam Jackson did the role proud making him related to the original Shaft...not just rebooting it. Even Bale thought it was a stinker.

@Cellman

The Shaft remake was awful because John Singleton is a dreadful director. He got lucky with Boyz n the Hood.
