RUMOR: Idris Elba Meeting Tarantino For Django Unchained?

There has been many speculations concerning Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained. What we do know is that it will be a slave-era spaghetti western with a freed slave as the main character. Focusing on his mission to save his wife with the help of a bounty hunter. Previously there has been talk of Will Smith being pursued for the lead role. Now there is a really exciting rumor that involves Idris Elba meeting for the part as well. Elba Tweeted this interesting tidbit that has fueled the rumor.  

"Having one of the biggest meetings of my professional life today...meeting a very controversial director for a very controversial part. :-/"

Elba is quickly making a big name for himself in both television and film. Known for stand out roles in The Wire, RockNRolla, Thor, The Office, Luther, American Gangster, 28 Weeks Later and not to mention an important role in Ridley Scott's Alien prequel Prometheus. He's been on many people's list when trying to think of casting for the role of Django, including mine. Which has been one of the main reasons to think this is Django. I'm pulling for Idris as this could be his big break turning him into a full-fledged leading man.
