Thor Star Idris Elba Making Prequel Film of Hit TV Show LUTHER
In Heimdall news... A prequel film to the Luther tv series starring Ibris Elba (Thor, Pacific Rim) is being developed, hoping to start shooting next year.
Speaking at the Edinburgh TV festival, the show's creator, Neil Cross, said that "The show's finished. Idris, as he should be, has gone on to be a big movie star,"
The Film will feature Luthers early days and his rise through the department which should appeal to fans of the show as well as general public who have never seen it.
"I've written the script and we hope to get the film made next year," said Cross, who has also written a Luther novel and is working on a second. "Idris is a brilliant leading man and we've hoped to turn Luther into a movie for a long time. It will follow his career in the earlier days, when he is still married to Zoe [played in the first series by Indira Varma], and the final scene in the film is the first of the initial TV series."
Making a prequel would allow Cross to bring back some of the TV series' original characters: Justin Ripley (Warren Brown) Luther's sidekick, his disgraced colleague Ian Reed (Steven Mackintosh), and his wife Zoe.
Although There's no place for Luther's murderous confidante Alice Morgan (Ruth Wilson)as the detective does not meet her until later in the series.
So what you think? Want to see more of Luther? That is if you have already seen the show. If you haven't- Do it...
