Idris Elba In Line To Be The Next James Bond?! Hacked Sony Emails Reveal This Potentially Awesome Move!

| Filed under: Film FlickersBusiness BlitzSony

We hope the fact that this information was NOT supposed to be public knowledge doesn't hinder this possible changing of the guards in this storied franchise!

More hacked emails from Sony have been released and one exchange between Sony Pictures Entertainment co-chairman Amy Pascal and former executive vice president of production for Columbia Pictures Elizabeth Cantillon revealed some awesome possible news regarding The Wire actor Idris Elba.

And Idris potentially becoming the next James Bond after whenever Daniel Craig decides to step down from the iconic role!

Here's what Amy's email said:

"Idris should be the next bond."

Here's one instance where Amy Pascal is right on the money! It would make SO much sense to have Idris Elba, who currently is the star of the show Luther, to play the suave double-oh-seven agent!

He's British, he's hot, he's a badass. And since Idris has previously expressed his desire to be a part of this storied franchise - why isn't this guy ALREADY the next Bond?!

Well, Daniel Craig has in the past admitted he won't be doing many more Bond movies. He said:

"I've been trying to get out of this from the very moment I got into it. But they won't let me go, and I've agreed to do a couple more, but let's see how this one does, because business is business and if the shit goes down, I've got a contract that somebody will happily wipe their a** with."

Daniel's next Bond movie Spectre is coming in November 2015 and he's only signed up for one more Bond movie after that. It definitely seems like right after that last movie is when a change would be coming.

And hopefully that James Bond change involves a man named Elba, Idris Elba.

We're always shaking after one of his stirring performances, ha!

    I wish people would stop screwing with movies….Annie was not black and neither was James Bond. Why take established characters and change their race? Make new ones! What's next? Santa ?????

    Black or white, I wish they would stop making James Bond movies. I watched the first 3 or maybe 4 and frankly after that they went to heck, not something I will spend my money on.

    James Bond is not black so why make him so? Why don't they just create a new spy agent who is black?

    I also agree with the others who say that Annie should not be black. Annie is white so let her be white.

    So what's next in the agenda? A gay James Bond?

    Bond is about an exuding a certain strength and smoothness all at once. Most importantly its about being very distinctively British. Elba has all those quality. Hence i would not be opposed to him being the new James Bond.

    But there is a certain worry about age. Craig is 46, Elba is already 42. Bond was never the youngest but if Craig stays for another couple of movies the timing would be tight.

    Also,and i hate to say this.but they might not pull the best numbers. It has to do more with identification then with race though. If they made James Bond Pakistani,Chinese or even with an central European background (all people who's second and third generations are quintessentially British) it might be difficult to sale AT FIRST.

    But it might be a risk worth taking considering Elba acting chops and his general presence.

    Yes please ! In response to some of the Ludicris comments…every country on every continent is split over and under 60 yrs of age. Time will make the world colourblind… Thank God!!! There is an old guard in every country that includes paranoid over-reaction of ego's, inhumane torture and weapon violence. This thinking will die out over time as well. Love is the answer not a complete lack of empathy and humanity by an officer to "I can't breathe". Idris Elba is my new James Bond…Hawt !!!

    My James Bond pick is Francois Arnaud. Although he is French Canadian, Canada has strong British ties…just like the Scottish, Irish, Australian and South African actors that were selected for the role.

    I am a James Bond fan. I am not in any way prejudice nor a racist. I am from Jamaica and am married to a black lady. BUT, I WILL NOT WATCH A 007 movie with a black James Bond. That's like have having Bill Cosby play Archie Bunker.

    I like Idris, especially in Prometheus, but I do not see any difference between him and Daniel Craig. They are kind of similar, both good looking, both with beef cake physique, both kind of "diamond in the rough", and both with a brawny personality. If Sony wanted a different type of a Bond, but still "darker", I think Francois Arnaud would be a great alternative–first Camdian Bond.
