Idris Elba Thinks It's Time to 'Do Something Different' with James Bond

Idris Elba is all smiles while hitting the carpet at the premiere of his directorial debut in feature film Yardi held during the 2018 Sundance Film Festival at The Ray on Saturday (January 20) in Park City, Utah.

The 45-year-old actor-director was joined at the event by the stars of the flick Aml Ameen, Mark Rhino Smith, Shantol Jackson, Riaze Foster, Sheldon Shepherd and Everaldo Creary.

While out discussing Yardie, Idris reflected on the future of the iconic James Bond films.

” There’s no such thing as a black Bond. Are we interested in having a Bond character other than being a male?, Idris asked via Variety. “Could be a woman, could be a black woman, could be a white woman, but I think, that character, everybody would like to see it have – do something different with it, why not?”

Also pictured: Idris kept it cool and casual while celebrating at TAO Park City Presented by Tinder and Tequila Don Julio on Saturday (January 20) in Park City, Utah.
