Idris Elba net worth 2022: Why did he refuse to play James Bond?

James Bond producers have spoken about why Idris Elba did not want to play the role of 007.

In the 2021 'No Time to Die' movie, Daniel Craig’s James Bond dies in the final moments.

As a result, for the first time in years, the renowned role of 007 is open for grabs.

While fans have been hoping to see Elba as James Bond, the actor indicated that he’s not interested in the role of 007.

Interestingly, Elba playing the role of Bond would be historic as he would be the first non-white actor to play the character.

A man of multiple talents, Idris Elba has a net worth of $40 million in 2022.

The '007' franchise has seen seven actors take on the role of Bond across 27 different films.

Collectively, all movies have grossed over $7 billion and counting worldwide.
