The 48-year-old actor confirmed that a film version of the popular crime thriller was in the works last year after the BBC series ended in 2019.
Speaking to MistaJam at All-New Capital Weekender, Idris, who played John Luther on the DCI TV show, explained his plans for the year.
“Definitely make more music, people who love my film and my things listen, I will do Luther: The Movie,” he said.
“I’m super excited and I hope the fans are kind of excited about it. It took a long time to make a movie for people who loved the show. We’ve been doing the show for 10 years so we’re doing a movie. “
Idris finally announced that the film was on its way after months of speculation.
“I said I would like to see a movie come, and I think we’re going there – a movie. And I look forward to achieving that. It happens, ”he said last year.
“… In film, the sky is the limit. You can be a little braver with the storylines, a little more international, and a little better. But John will always be John Luther. “
He discussed the idea back in 2018 and said to our friends at LADBible: “For me it would be nice to put Luther on a scale. Make the story bigger, a little more international. “
Luther was created by Neil Cross in 2010 and first hit our screens. To date, Elba has won two Golden Globes and a Royal Television Society Best Actor Award for his performance.
The hit series also starred Ruth Wilson, who played the narcissistic killer Alice Morgan, who shared a love-hate relationship with John throughout the series.
Hopefully this means the movie will arrive in our lives as soon as possible! More how it comes …
