Actor Idris Elba has reportedly made it to the final list of new James Bond candidates.

“To get anyone to take over from Daniel will be a tough job. There will be a lot of trepidation about a new Bond, but Idris’ talent and proven appeal gives executives a lot of heart. Idris may be a little older than the other candidates but he looks like he is still in his 30s. MGM are confident that they are in a pretty strong place with a raft of talent available,” a source said.

Other names include Aidan Turner, Luke Evans and Tom Hiddleston.
