James Bond producers understand why Idris Elba doesn't want to play James Bond

James Bond producers, Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson, have addressed Idris Elba’s recent statement that he doesn’t see himself playing the role of 007. 

Idris Elba most recently said he doesn't see himself playing the role of James Bond in a movie despite the rumors that he is in the running for the role.

Broccoli and Wilson were very understanding of what Elba is saying that the choice is a long term commitment.

Given that Elba will be at least 60 by the time that the next James Bond role is cast, he is not at the right age to take on such a rigorous role.

And so, the search for the next James Bond continues as the rest of the world wait to see who will replace Daniel Craig as the British super spy.

Elba isn't the only name that is in consideration for the role and there's even rumblings that the next James Bond will be female.
