Idris Elba backed as next James Bond by creator's niece
The great niece of James Bond creator Ian Fleming has backed Idris Elba, Richard Madden and Cillian Murphy as replacements for Daniel Craig.
Hermion Fleming also said she was not sure if a female iteration of the spy would work.
She said: "Idris Elba would make an awesome, sexy, bad-ass Bond. So would Richard Madden from The Bodyguard and Cillian Murphy from Peaky Blinders."
Craig recently confirmed the next Bond film, which is as yet untitled, will be his last.
She added: "I'm not convinced a female Bond would work.
"Yet bringing into the mix a similar character to the ruthless assassin, Villanelle in Killing Eve, would be fun."
