An actor Idris Elba refused to negotiate for the role of the new James Bond, despite the fact that he was one of the bookmakers’ favorites to replace Daniel Craig.
According to The Sun sources, The 49-year-old Luther star is set to start his own film franchise, but has offered producer Barbara Broccoli other candidates for the role of the next 007..
“Fans and Barbara wanted to see Idris [в роли Бонда]but he intends to create something of his own. However, he has nominated several names for the role of 007. He is “unofficially” involved in the decision-making process, as he has been in talks with the producers for a long time.”
54 year old Daniel Craig retired from Bond after five films with his participation. The last tape where he played Bond was last year’s “No time to die“.
After the information about Elba’s withdrawal from the fight for the role appeared, the 39-year-old Henry Cavill and 34 year old Rege-Jean Page.
