Idris Elba has addressed long-standing rumours that he was in talks to play James Bond, saying “it’s a compliment and it’s an honour, but it’s not a truth”.Back in 2021, Elba ruled himself out of taking over the role of Bond from Daniel Craig, whose last appearance as the secret agent was No Time To Die that same year.It was later reported Elba had been in talks to star in an upcoming Bond film and producer Barbara Broccoli later confirmed that Elba has been “part of the conversation” about who’ll take on the role.In a new interview with The Guardian, Elba said: “I love the Bond franchise, I’m very close to the producers.
