In a Daily Star article, director Antoine Fuqua is said to have a conversation with the Bond producer about potentially recasting Bond with a non-white actor.

"Idris could do it if he was in shape", the director teased.

First he was the obvious choice, then he seemed too old, but now he's back in the running - thanks to a weird tip from someone who probably doesn't know anything about it. Idris Elba might still be the next James Bond...

Elba has been a favourite to replace Daniel Craig since talk of him taking over the role began in 2014, after leaked documents from the Sony hack revealed co-chair of the company Amy Pascal put him forward.

There has been a bonafide grassroots movement to get Elba a role as Bond.

Other actors whose names have been suggested to take over the role of 007 include McMafia star James Norton, Tom Hardy, and Poldark's Aidan Turner.

A host of actors have also been mentioned as potential replacements for Daniel Craig, who has implied that the next time out will be his last as the character.

Craig's return to the role will undoubtedly stun fans as he stated three years ago that he would "rather slit his wrists" than take on the role once more.

According to reports in The Independent, producer Barbara Broccoli has hinted the door is open for a black Agent 007 in the future. Production on the movie, which will land in the U.S. on November 8, 2019'. I'm over it at the moment.
