Idris Elba has once more teased the concept of turning his cult BBC detective drama “Luther” into a characteristic, greater than a 12 months after Season 5 aired on British tv.
The actor informed a press junket for Season three of his Sky comedy “In The Long Run” that there aren’t any “formal plans” for an additional “Luther” sequence, based on Sky News.
But Elba added: “I’ve made it very clear that I’d like to see ‘Luther’ come back as a film. And I can tell you this, that we are this close to making a film of ‘Luther.’ ”
It’s not the primary time Elba has talked concerning the BBC Studios present heading to the large display screen. He informed Metro in 2018 that Luther author Neil Cross has been “beavering away” on a characteristic script.
“Luther has all the ingredients to echo those classic films of the ’90s like Seven and Along Came A Spider and I think what we’d like to attempt is use that as a blueprint to create it,” Elba added in 2018.
“It will be more murder, more Volvos, more frowning Luther. Essentially we just want to try and take it to a much bigger remit and scale and perhaps international as well.”
