Rejoice! Luther Is Coming To the Big Screen!
“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, and the final scene in the film is the first of the initial TV series.”
Squee along with me!
The prequel would also restore Luther’s sidekick Justin Ripley (Warren Brown) to life, as well as his shamed colleague Ian Reed (Steven Mackintosh). Slain wife Zoe (Indira Varma) would also return.
There’s only one problem with this. A prequel means there won’t be any Alice Morgan! After all, he doesn’t meet her until the second scene of the original series.
Can’t win them all, I suppose.
(Anibundel will be recapping the final series of Luther when it airs on BBCA in September.)
