The James Bond Films are probably going to be around until the end of time and who takes the lead-role is always the centre of discussion. With Daniel Craig making blunt remarks about his hope of not returning in 2015 but doing so in the end for one final time the search is on for the new Bond. 

Who is next to take on the 'shaken not stirred' role has been discussed since Daniel Craig made it clear this was his final one. Bond 25 is to be released in the US in November 2019 and is titled Bond 25 as it is the 25th film in the franchise.

Well, today it is reported that producers are leaning towards Idris Elba to be the next.

The Daily Star says Director Antoine Fuqua was told by the spy franchise's producer Barbara Broccoli that 'it is time' for a non-white actor to take on the role.

The Luther star's previously said he's not in the running to play 007.

We will just have to wait until Bond 25 is released to see who will be picked.
