The Fast & Furious franchise retains getting greater. It’s now on the level the place A-list actors are getting concerned (Charlize Theron was the villain in Fast eight). Theron will not be the one celebrity who will get to torture the gasoline-fueled anti-heroes, as Idris Elba is ready to hitch the solid. Although Elba could not go toe to toe with the likes Vin Diesel or Tyrese, he’ll nonetheless have his fingers full with Dwyane Johnson and Jason Statham.
Johnson and Statham might be getting their very own Fast & Furious spin-f known as Hobbs & Shaw. Both characters had been antagonists to Vin Diesel and his workforce at first, however ended up serving to the Fast crew over time. Now, they are going to be placing their very own variations apart (possibly) to battle Elba.

Once upon a time Idris Elba and Okay. Michelle dated for about eight or 9 months however now Michelle would not take into account him a “true good friend” as a result of he by no means had her again after scrutiny she went by post-breakup. The “Love Em All” singer not too long ago chatted with TV One’s UNCENSORED and informed the crew that individuals questioned how Idris would date a “ghetto” woman. Once the connection was over rather a lot individuals thought she lied about them being collectively.
“I felt like he didn’t defend me,” Michelle mentioned, Bossip. “I really feel like when individuals have been calling me a liar, once more, about my relationship…I’ve been sitting right here with this man for like 9 months. I simply couldn’t imagine we have been spending a lot time collectively and] he simply didn’t come out and say; ‘Stop attacking her!’ Or he didn’t come out and say, ‘This is my good friend, I find out about this album.

Idris is now relationship Sabrina Dhowre and after beforehand cloaming he would by no means get married once more, he and Sabrina are engaged and anticipated to wed quickly.
Director David Leitch (Deadpool 2, John Wick, Atomic Blonde) is about to convey the primary Fast & Furious spin-f to life. Hobbs And Shaw will star Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham because the titular characters who group up with Vin Diesel and firm. This time although, Diesel, Tyrese, Ludacris, and the others will likely be relinquished to f-screen duties. Somehow, when Dwayne Johnson first joined the Fast & Furious franchise for the fifth installment, I had a sense he would take over. As one Hollywood’s hardest working and highest paid actors, Johnson has a number of franchises within the palm his hand. The wrestler turned actor took to Instagram to put up a primary have a look at Hobbs And Shaw, and it is all the pieces you’ll anticipate.
In the black and white filtered photograph, Hobbs and Shaw stand nose to nose. Their intense glares sit someplace in between hatred and mutual respect. “We both gonna get alongside or we gonna get it on. Fuck getting alongside,” wrote Johnson because the caption to the image. “We’re havin’ a blast disrupting the norm to ship one thing recent, cool, enjoyable and unhealthy ass for the followers.” Hobbs and Shaw can have their arms full, as Idris Elba will likely be taking part in the movie’s villain.
There was a moment where fans everywhere wanted to see Idris Elba play the famed character that is James Bond in the upcoming film. It took Idris a moment to reject the idea, but before he could have a final answer a lot people had their opinions a Black man playing a White character. As we posted before, journalist Katie Hopkins said “No Idris Elba, you cannot be James Bond. You will not be 007, no matter how many tweets you put out saying ‘I’m Elba, Idris Elba.’”
Ice T clapped back to Katie, and now Idris has come through to defend casting controversies. “Artistic license is artistic license. If an actor has the attributes to do something, they should be able to do it,” he told TimeOut London, Attitude magazine. “They’re acting.”
He added: “You don’t necessarily have to be gay to play a gay character. Though you do have to be black to play a black character.” Idris then called the debate around him starring as James Bond “nonsense.”
“It’s a fictional character. I’ve got mad respect for how Ian Fleming described him. He said he was a white guy, looked like this … That’s how it was written. But then there’s interpretation,” he explained. “If we were always bound by the confines that something has to be one way], people would never have expanded on things and come up with some the most genius ideas.”
Idris Elba’s one the most celebrated actors modern times but a lot people don’t know that he also dabbles in music as well. Idris Elba co-produced and performed on the intro Jay-Z’s American Gangster album, DJ’s under the name DJ Big Driis and even opened for Madonna on her Rebel Heart tour stop in Berlin. Last year, there were rumors possible collaboration with Elba and A$AP Rocky. We’ve yet to see that come into fruition but according to Idris, it nearly did.
Idris Elba recently sat down with Beats1 host, Matt Wilkinson to speak about directorial debut “Yardie” which hits theaters this Friday. During the conversation, he spoke on creating the soundtrack, Bob Marley and his upbringing in Hackney. However, he also spoke on the possibilities an A$AP Rocky collaboration. While many thought that it would be a musical collaboration, Elba revealed that he’s pretty much open to collaborating on anything with the Harlem native.
“A$AP and I – we share a mutual friend Hector Delgado who is his engineer and producer. I love A$AP, he’s a good soul. And every time we meet each other we’re like, ‘let’s work’. Not necessarily music – he wants to act, he does act, I want to do music. So we just collaborate and we nearly made it happen… it hasn’t happened. Skepta is a good friend also, and they connect. So we’re just in a circle where there’s a possibility.” He said, “There’s no ‘nos’ in this game. I think what’s happening with artists… People are reaching out in different genres and going ‘hey’.”
Peep a clip the interview below. You could listen to the full interview here.
Somehow, the still untitled Bond 25 just lost their director. James Bond’s ficial Twitter page announced the departure Danny Boyle on Tuesday (Aug. 21). “Michael G. Wilson, Barbara Broccoli and Daniel Craig today announced that due to creative differences Danny Boyle has decided to no longer direct Bond 25,” reads the tweet.
What’s really surprising here, is that Craig himself has come out to suggest he no longer wants to play Bond. It’s interesting to see that the director has walked away before Craig, hinting that there are some real issues going on behind the scene. Boyle was working on the script for the next Bond film alongside Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, who scripted Casino Royale, Quantum Solace, Skyfall, and Spectre (the entire Craig series Bond films). Skyfall was a massive success, becoming the highest grossing Bond film ever. Spectre was a bit a disappointment though. Bond 25 is still scheduled to hit theaters on November 8, 2019.
Daniel Craig infamously sat down with Time Out London in 2015, and had this to say about making another Bond film: “Now? I’d rather break this glass and slash my wrists. No, not at the moment. Not at all. That’s fine. I’m over it at the moment. We’re done. All I want to do is move on.” Maybe they should just scrap everything and make the Idris Elba relaunch we’ve all been asking for.
The talk the town is that Idris Elba should be the next James Bond in the upcoming action film. Although he suggested it should be a woman, most fans are down to have him. “Are we interested in having a Bond character other than being a male? It could be a woman—could be a black woman, could be a white woman,” he said. “Do something different with it. Why not?”
But according to English journalist Katie Hopkins, it shouldn’t be Idris because he’s black, and Ice-T isn’t here for her opinion. “No Idris Elba, you cannot be James Bond. You will not be 007, no matter how many tweets you put out saying ‘I’m Elba, Idris Elba.’ It’s not because you’re a gentleman color. It’s because James Bond isn’t. He’s written as an upper-class, arrogant white,” she said. “Must we perpetually crowbar-in gender and color in where it doesn’t fit?”
The “I’m Your Pusher” rapper re-tweeted her interview saying, “This bitch sounds stupid…” Katie got word the tweets, seeing as it’s been re-tweeted over 14,000 times, and responded saying “Ice T my ass.”
Idris Elba would be the perfect James Bond. He has the British accent, the physical form, and the ladies’ hearts. Plus, the man can dress. Speculation that Elba would play Bond has been running wild for years on the web, but it all hit a boiling point last week when it was seemingly confirmed that he would take up the role 007. The original story came from U.K. tabloid The Daily Star, but their report has since been proven false. The Star claimed that Antoine Fuqua spoke with James Bond producer Barbara Broccoli about a Black James Bond. Apparently, that meeting never took place.
Tricked yet again by Black Bond rumors, the internet went into a frenzy. Those who believe Bond should remain Caucasian cheered, while those who sought to see diversity shook their heads. Among all the internet squabbling, Elba took to Twitter to give his own two cents. In two cryptic tweets, Elba addressed the situation. One tweet features a picture the actor with a cartoon filter. As a caption, Elba wrote, “my name’s Elba, Idris Elba.” His nod to the signature James Bond line led to further speculation. He followed that with a message that everyone should heed in any situation. “Don’t believe the HYPE.” True.
