Though Idris Elba is worried about ending up in history as the first black James Bond, it is being reported that he has met and he is in talks with producer Barbara Broccoli to replace Daniel Craig as the next 007…

Eldris Elba who is of Ghanaian/Sierra Leone descent is in talks with the big names behind the James Bond movies to take over from Daniel Craig as the iconic British spy in the near future…

But remember, this does not mean you would be seeing Idris Elba in the next James Bond movie kicking some bad asses. The current James Bond-Daniel Craig is contracted for two more Bond films, so Idris’ would take over the role in several years’ time says Collider.com.

New Bond girl Naomie Harris – who plays Eve in the latest chapter ‘Skyfall’  has also mentioned that: “I didn’t realise that there was this talk and then I did a film with Idris and he said that he met Barbara Broccoli and that it does seem like there is a possibility in the future that there could very well be a black James Bond.

“And I would have to vote for Idris because I just finished working with him and he’s a great guy.”

Idris’ worry about the whole James Bond thing is that, although he is interested in the part, he wants to be remembered for his skills as an actor and not for his skin colour.

This is how be puts it… “I don’t want to be the black James Bond. Sean Connery wasn’t the Scottish James Bond, and Daniel Craig wasn’t the blue-eyed James Bond, so if I played him, I don’t want to be called the black James Bond.”
