by Emma Stefansky November 15, 2016 @ 3:31 PM
Idris Elba has become something of a brawny big-shot action hero in recent years, with roles in films like Prometheus, Pacific Rim, Star Trek Beyond, and The Take, but sometimes it’s nice for actors to slow down a bit and flex their character study muscles instead. In 100 Streets, whose American trailer was released this week, Elba plays a retired rugby player struggling to find meaning in a life away from the game.

Kevin Costner has been spotted around Hollywood limbering up his mouth muscles, practicing his walk-and-talk, and getting comfortable with the phrase “I’m really quite something,” all of which can only mean one thing: He’s in negotiations for a role in Aaron Sorkin’s upcoming directorial debut, Molly’s Game. And while none of that first part is, strictly speaking, “true,” that second part sure is. (According to a new exclusive from Deadline, at least.)

Idris Elba Needs Anger Management in ‘The Take’ Trailer

Been wondering what Idris Elba and Richard Madden have been up to lately? Apparently, stopping a terrorist attack in the action-packed thriller The Take, which is unrelated to Tom Hardy’s British miniseries The Take, or the 2007 movie The Take starring John Leguziamo and Tyrese Gibson. In fact, this The Take was originally titled Bastille Day, but because of the attacks in Nice, France, the film has a new title for its release over here.

StudioCanal Pulls Idris Elba Thriller ‘Bastille Day’ From French Theaters

by Matthew Monagle July 16, 2016 @ 2:15 PM
With Idris Elba at the epicenter of Bond rumors and The Dark Tower production gossip, more than a few of us have kept our eye on the reviews of Bastille Day, a new thriller starring Elba as a CIA agent and former Game of Thrones star Richard Madden as a pickpocket caught in the wrong place at the wrong time. Even if the reviews of the film have been mostly average, it did offer us a valuable look at Elba as both an international spy and a modern gunslinger, something we hope to see a lot more of soon.
