But the role of James Bond is not for Idris Elba?
For years, Idris Elba has been one of the favorites in the race for the role of Her Majesty’s spy. Although Barbara Broccoli and Michael J. Wilson assert that they are in love with the “Luther” star, it can be concluded from their statements that the 50-year-old actor is unlikely to get a job.
The point is that it will take several years before another movie can be made – explains broccoli – The person who gets the role of Bond must be ready to commit for 10 or 12 years. [Idris] Perhaps he is thinking: do I really want it? Not everyone wants to do this. It was hard to get Daniel Craig to agree. Wilson quickly added: He was then in his thirties.
What are the challenges for 007’s new role?
The producers stress that the search for the next bond isn’t just about choosing a new actor. It’s about reinventing the character – says broccoli – To answer the question of where to take it. What do we want to do with it? Once we can prove it, we will be able to identify the right person for this new vision.
According to Broccola and Wilson, many young actors who want to play Bond are unaware of the responsibility that will fall on their shoulders next. This is a big commitment. It’s not just several months of work on the set Broccoli points out. As an example, Daniel Craig, who at the beginning of his adventure with the bike had a lot of enthusiasm and energy, but over time began to lose it.
The James Bond movie series has been around for 60 years. At that time, 007 was played by Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan and the aforementioned Craig. Including inflation, espionage bids totaled more than $19 billion.
The series ends with last year’s “Don’t Time to Die,” the trailer for which you can watch below.
