On Friday, the U.K. publication The Daily Star tabloid published an article claiming that director Antoine Fuqua reportedly said Bond series producer Barbara Broccoli thinks “it is time” for a black actor to star in the franchise. Apparently, the article said, the 45-year-old “Luther” star is in the running to play the titular role if the current actor playing Bond, Daniel Craig, retires the part.

  ‘Respect’ the bond market and what it’s trying to tell us, Fed's Bullard warns Federal Reserve member James Bullard told CNBC that changes in the bond market are the main focus point for investors at the moment. In particular, Bullard mentioned that investors are carefully tracking the yield curve to check whether a potential recession is getting closer. The yield curve — a line that plots the difference between short and long-term interest rates in the U.S. — has flattened over the last month, but many analysts are worried that it will invert as soon as next year.

JAMES BOND favourite Idris Elba has spoken out on what annoys him about rumours he will replace Daniel Craig as 007. The 45-year-old said: “It's interesting that the James Bond thing continues to go .”

HuffPost reached out to Elba, Fuqua and Broccoli to confirm the report, but none of their camps immediately commented.

Yet, rumor or not, people online seem pretty excited about the idea.

Fans of the franchise have wanted the British actor to play Bond for quite a while, including former 007 Pierce Brosnan, who told the RadioTimes back in 2015 that he thinks Elba would make a good Bond (though in June, he endorsed Tom Hardy).

Rumors that Elba is being considered for the role stem back to 2014, when the massive Sony hack leaked that then-studio co-chair Amy Pascal told a colleague, “Idris should be the next Bond.”

Yet, despite the mass approval, Elba doesn’t believe the role must be played by any man ― including himself.

“I would be interested in having a Bond character other than being a male,” he said in a video published by Variety in January. “It could be a woman, it could be a black woman, it could be a white woman. But I think that character, everyone would like to see [filmmakers] do something different with it, you know. Why not?”
