JAMES WRONG: Next 007 could be “Black woman,” says Idris Elba

JAMES Bond could be a black woman according to actor Idris Elba.

During an interview with Variety for his upcoming debut as a director in “Yardie” Elba said: “Are we interested in having a Bond character other than being a male?”

“It could be a woman, could be a black woman, could be a white woman, but I think, that character, everybody would like to see it have — do something different with it, why not?”

Bond screenwriter Anthony Horowitz has cast doubt on the idea and said “Idris Elba is a terrific actor, but I can think of other black actors who would do it better,”

“For me, Idris Elba is a bit too rough to play the part,” he added. “It’s not a color issue. I think he is probably a bit too ‘street’ for Bond. Is it a question of being suave? Yeah.”

Daniel Craig will star in his final Bond movie in 2019, marking the 25th edition of the hit movie franchise.
