Brit actor fuels speculation he'll succeed Daniel Craig as 007.

Idris Elba has reignited rumours that he could be set to take over the role of James Bond from Daniel Craig with a cryptic tweet that has sent fans into a frenzy.

Yesterday (Aug. 10), we reported that Idris Elba was in the front running to play James Bond.

Elba, 45, made his name in gritty U.S. television drugs drama "The Wire" and won a Golden Globe for his role as a murder detective in "Luther", before moving to the big screen.

He has been in blockbusters such as "Thor", "Pacific Rim" and "Star Trek", and was nominated for a Golden Globe for playing the title role in "Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom". The original story came from United Kingdom tabloid The Daily Star, which claimed that director Antoine Fuqua spoke with James Bond producer Barbara Broccoli about implementing a Black James Bond into the franchise.

However, a spokesman for the alleged source of this quote, director Antoine Fuqua, told the Hollywood Reporter that he and Broccoli had never discussed Bond or casting.

While the actor has previously remained coy about whether or not he would take on the part, and even saying he thinks he is too old, fans took his tweet as a positive response to the latest rumours.

Craig will return for the fifth time as Bond in 2019, in an as yet unnamed movie directed by Oscar-winning filmmaker Danny Boyle.
