British actor Idris Elba has become one of the most popular actors in Hollywood today, making him a very busy man with a number of new movie projects coming out in the near future. However, despite his busy work schedule, the actor still managed to spend a year training to become a kickboxer in his documentary series Fighter. Now, Idris has been talking about his experience, admitting that he would be up for appearing in a new Rocky movie or something similar.
 
 
Elba was chatting to the Metro newspaper, when he told them, "Sort of! My agent has been fielding boxing scripts left, right and centre. They're not imaginative enough, though. Maybe one day I'll do a fight film but what would be the story? Comeback king of the year? I don't know. I feel like I have more of a foundation in the art of fighting now for roles that require action-led fighting.''
 
He added, "It was a little dangerous for my acting career, though, because I obviously use my face to act! Some people buy Ferraris or a motorbike, I wanted to test whether my body could withstand extreme training ... I'd do a lot of runs, pad work, bag work, core work and then the last stage was ring craft and what my fight was going to be like. A lot of the time I was training I was making two films ['Thor: Ragnarok' and 'The Dark Tower'] which was pretty brutal."
 
 
There have been rumours that there are plans to make the new movie Creed 2, which has not yet begun shooting so could well still have space for Idris Elba to make an appearance. Watch this space!
