Mike Tyson wants to make a film with Danny Dyer and Idris Elba

If you were casting for your dream film, who would you include?

You might look for a legend like Dustin Hoffman or Meryl Streep. Or maybe you're after a cast with fresher faces like John Boyega or Saoirse Ronan.

But you've probably never thought of teaming up former boxing champion Mike Tyson, Eastenders actor Danny Dyer and Luther star Idris Elba. That is, unless you're Tyson, of course.

Tyson admitted to The Sun that he'd love to work with Elba and Dyer, saying: "What's the gentleman that does all those action movies? I forget his name, but man, he does great, funny, movie action, really awesome stuff.

"Danny Dyer. I love him to death. He's cool and I love his movies. I love Danny Dyer. I haven't seen EastEnders, but I'm familiar with it."

He then went on to heap praise on Elba's role in 12 Years a Slave as well as that of his fellow Brit Chiwetel Ejiofor: "I want to work with that guy in England who did 12 Years A Slave, Chiwetel Ejiofor. Idris Elba is good. He's awesome. I want to be acting with those guys in the UK."
