Hollywood heavyweight Idris Elba does more than just act. The high-profile entertainer has pulled through to drop some serious bars in the new “Boasty” music video.
The star-studded visual features Elba, Wiley, Sean Paul and hip-hop artist Stefflon Don.
This week, buzz developed about Elba getting targeted to replace fellow Hollywood superstar Will Smith in the upcoming Suicide Squad supervillain sequel.
Smith had to bow out of the upcoming DC Comics movie due to scheduling conflicts, and the studio moved fast to find another proven A-lister to replace him before production starts in September. It’s currently unknown who will be joining Elba in the sequel, though many believe Margot Robbie will return as Harley Quinn. James Gun was tapped to write and direct the film. The release date is currently set for Aug. 6, 2021. (Variety)
Last week, buzz developed about Will having to ditch the DC Comics flick due to scheduling conflicts.
Even though his return had not been made official, sources tell Variety that Will Smith, who played Deadshot in the original, is not expected to return for the studio’s upcoming sequel. Sources say scheduling was the ultimate factor and that the decision was made on amicable terms between both sides with no hard feelings. Though the studio has never confirmed who would be returning for “The Suicide Squad,” insiders say the studio has always wanted its biggest stars like Smith and Margot Robbie, who played Harley Quinn in the first pic, to return while figuring out other casting decisions along the way.
