Luther creator Neil Cross has written the script for his Luther origins story film starring Idris Elba, and hopes to shoot it next year...

Though we've waved goodbye to Idris Elba's obsessive detective on the small screen (for the time being at least), the previously discussed origins film is still very much a possibility according to Luther creator Neil Cross.

Speaking at the Edinburgh International Television Festival, Cross confirmed "I've written the script and we hope to get the film made next year. 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, and the final scene in the film is the first of the initial TV series."

A return for Zoe and Ripley? We can't see fans complaining about that. We'll bring you more on the Luther film as it arrives.
