IN TALKS: Idris Elba To Play Nelson Mandela In 2012 Biopic

Filed under : Africa

I am ok with Idris Elba playing Tata Madiba Mandela just like most of you were ok with him [Idris that is] playing in your private garden! Hahahaha….I kid, I kid….but seriously, this casting of Idris Elba as Tata Madiba aint a bad idea at all!

Idris Elba, whose dad is from Sierra Leone and mom from Ghana, has reportedly signed up to play Tata Nelson Mandela in an “official” biopic of the South African former President & freedom fighter.

Movie & film blog Flickering Myth, revealed that Idris Elba will soon agree to a deal to appear in the new movie, to start filming in 2012.

This should be interesting *should it even take place*!
