The producers of the franchise have responded to Elba saying that they are absolutely not interested in the role, despite his public outcry to play 007.
Elba said that everywhere he goes, people mention Bond, “and I think it’s beyond me at this point.”
“We love Idris,” Broccoli said.
“The thing is, it’s going to take a couple of years off,” he added. “And when we cast Bond, it’s a 10, 12-year commitment. So he’s probably thinking, ‘Do I really want that? Not everybody wants to do that. It was pretty hard to get. . [Daniel Craig to do it]”
“And he was in his early 30s at the time!” Wilson added.
Consider us hustle and bustle.
