Luther set for big screen prequel

(From The Guardian) Hit BBC crime drama Luther could return as a big screen prequel telling the story of the crime fighting east London detective chief inspector’s rise through the ranks.

Speaking at the Edinburgh TV festival, series creator Neil Cross said he hoped to take Idris Elba’s maverick police officer back to the start of his career, a move that would also involve restoring many of the series’ original castmembers.

He is hoping the film will therefore appeal both to hardcore fans and those who have never seen the series.

“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.”

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.
