The producers behind the James Bond franchise confirm that Idris Elba’s name has come up, but one element complicates it.

Last year saw the long-running spy franchise hit a major milestone with the release of No Time to Die, the much-delayed No Time to Die being the 25th film in the franchise and a swan song for Daniel Craig.

The online conversation surrounding the next James Bond was already heating up long before Craig said goodbye, but producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson said they were waiting for the dust to settle on No Time To Die before beginning their search.

In a recent interview with Deadline’s Crew Call podcast, the Bond producers were faced with the question of whether Elba’s name has come up in regards to the franchise.

Broccoli admitted that he has been part of the discussion, but it is still difficult to move forward after Craig’s departure. She said:

“Well, we know Idris, we’re friends with him, and he’s a terrific actor. And, you know, he’s been part of the conversation, but it’s always hard to have a conversation when you’ve got someone in the seat. So, you know, I think we’ve decided that until No Time to Die is over and Daniel has been able to… well, we’ve all been able to savor, reap the benefits of Daniel’s wonderful tenure, we’re not going to think or talk about anyone plus.
