Who is actor idris elba dating
He’s starring in, and he’s co-producing, the portmanteau of “seven stories, set in one square mile of London”.Is it true he’s “circling” Guy Ritchie’s mooted remake of King Arthur?It then became the de facto name of the house parties he held while in residence.In turn, 7wallace became a signature Idris beverage: Tanqueray gin, splash of cranberry and tonic, “and loads of lime. It’s quite a refreshing drink.” Too refreshing: Elba orders us two flagons of the stuff, and promptly finishes mine.Even though the guest-list last night stretched to a whopping 1,000 people – and even considering his still somewhat unproven DJ credentials – Elba could easily have parlayed his celebrity status into playing one of the big-ticket, big-fee Ibizan superclubs.But the likes of Space, Amnesia and Ushuaia are not for him. If you don’t, you can mill around, and still get part of the atmosphere.” Or you can stand and gawp at the famous-face DJ, as not a few punters had done last night.So it’s teatime before the actor shuffles into a quietened, darkened room at Pikes Hotel, wearing just a pair of shorts, flip-flops and a hand-rolled smoke.Yesterday, Elba was sequestered outside London, on the hush-hush set of a huge fantasy movie he’s not supposed to talk about.
But sometime in the coming week, Elba might be back in the UK, working on the independent film A Hundred Streets.And then he admits that he is in fact reading the script. He says that Paris-set thriller, in which he would play a CIA agent, is not confirmed but is “on the cards” (although at the time of writing Elba was due to commence filming).“It is a hybrid,” he nods slowly, referring to the mixed-bag nature of his current professional commitments. I was annoyed.” But this is only the start of Idris Elba’s musical adventures.It was a long way, in every sense, from the role with which he began 2014, playing the lead in Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom.But today The Wire star turned established star of blockbusters films (Prometheus, Pacific Rim, Thor) is flopping in this famous White Island establishment.
