Idris Elba has confirmed that he will not be the next James Bond.
The actor was rumoured to be playing the part of James Bond after he hinted to fans online that he might be taking up the iconic role.
The 45-year-old has now put an end to the speculation as he told Good Morning Britain reporters that he will not be playing the part of 007.
Fans were convinced that Idris would be the next James Bond after producers of the famous films said that it was time for the character to be played by a black actor.
Idris also teased fans when he tweeted a picture of himself with the caption “My name’s Elba, Idris Elba.”
The news comes after Danny Boyle, who was meant to be directing the film, quit the production due to ‘creative differences.’
