Idris Elba and Will Smith Battle for Role

Actor Will Smith believed he nailed down the lead role for  Quentin Tarantino’s “Django Unchained.” But it also seems as if actor Idris Elba thinks he has it as well. Elba tweeted:

The part Smith and Elba are competing for is that of a freed slave who enlists the help of a German bounty hunter to find his wife, a slave, and free her from her evil plantation owner.

Elba, currently starring in Marvel’s Thor,” somewhat alluded to how important the role is on two another tweets:

Currently filming Men in Black III, Smith, if he does hangs onto the role in “Django Unchained”, could be under siege from trying to film two major productions at the same time.

Idris never says the “controversial directors”  name or does’t go into detail about the “controversial part”  but many are speculating that “Django Unchained” lead role is the role he’s tweeting about.
