British actor Idris Elba says a movie version of his hit BBC TV series “Luther” is coming soon.
Elba spoke with the press on Friday after receiving a special award from the British Academy of Film and Television Arts. Elba said: “I’ve maintained I’d like to see it come to a film, and that is where I think we are heading towards — a film. And I’m looking forward to making that happen. It is happening.”
He continued: “With film, the sky is the limit. You can be a little bit more bold with the storylines, and a little bit more international, and a little more up the scale. But John Luther is always going to be John Luther.”
In regards to the future of the TV series, Elba isn’t sure about future episodes but he does know that the film is very close to being made.
