Oscar winner, John Ridley, may have accidentally revealed who the next James Bond will be. Drum roll please…
…it’s Idris Elba!
Shocking. Positively shocking.
Ridley has worked with Elba most recently on the film, Guerrilla, and said this when speaking to BBC Radio One:
“It was a pleasure, he’s a gentleman. I can’t wait to see him as James Bond quite frankly.”
However, Elba’s reaction refutes this rumour:
“Oh my god, I have no idea why he said that. That’s another six months of the rumour, oh well.”
Sounds like someone is trying to cover something up
Even though Elba has denied the role before, stating that he is ‘too old’ to be 007, he contradicted his own statement by proving himself very capable of being James Bond in his recent documentary, Fighter. He even insinuates that he isn’t handsome!
I don’t think there’s a problem there…
But I guess we’ll just have to wait and see! For now, you can make your own speculations, kick back and enjoy a martini.
