Idris Elba is glad that James Bond franchise will continue with Daniel Craig, the Dark Tower star even praised his colleague for such a clever returning to the 007 franchise.
Good news for the fans of James Bond: the next 007 movie, Bond 25, has already got a release date, 2019. And it’s widely assumed that Daniel Craig will be returning to the role one last time. There were rumours that next James Bond will play Idris Elba but Craig made a return, so Mr Elba is glad for the colleague who is more experienced as 007 agent.
While casting a possible new Mr Bond, Idris Elba became a frontrunner after being name-dropped by Amy Pascal in the Sony email leaks and has been at the top of the bookies’ odds ever since.
Idris Elba about 007 and Daniel Craig’s return
The Dark Tower star in his interview with Kyle and Jackie O in the Morning was asked about his thoughts on 007:
“Daniel Craig is a great Bond. I think honestly he and his business team are very clever – ‘no I won’t do it. $150 million? Yes I will do it,’”
said Elba. Despite, the actor didn’t say anything about his own potential prospects, he praised Daniel Craig’s astute business sense – that’s life of actors, that’s living!
