Idris Elba’s thick coat must be prepared and hung on the back of the door waiting for the green light to start production in Luther A movie later this year, but now it looks like a turn the famous BBC detective may not have seen comes with the news that DCI’s feature film adventure could head to Netflix.
According to the Giant Freakin Robot website, the feature film has found a home with the streaming giants. Furthermore, there is very little information available, and we still have to hear any official confirmation on a project that has seen its fair share of cuts and changes over the years.
The Luther The series follows Elba as DCI John Luther, a talented but obsessive and sometimes extremely violent detective who never manages to avoid being immersed in the darkness of the crimes he deals with as he struggles to separate his personal and professional life.
The popular BBC series premiered in 2010 and ran for a total of five seasons, with its final season appearing in 2019. However, the future of the TV series is currently unknown as the British broadcaster did not request a sixth season. Instead, he appears to be interested in developing a feature film to continue the story.
The Luther The film is currently a co-production by 20th Century Fox Television, BBC Worldwide Productions and Chernin Entertainment with Peter Chernin, Julie Gardner, Katherine Pope, Jane Tranter and Elba himself serving as executive producers. Jimmy Pine is on board to direct, having directed the fifth season of the show.
