London, Jul 8 : British star Idris Elba has teased that his character of troubled detective John Luther on BBC may make a return in a feature film.
The character, which was last seen on television in January 2019, is one of the most famous screen detectives in recent times.
There isn’t a real formal plan for Luther at the moment. I’ve made it very clear that I’d like to see Luther come back as a film,” the 47-year-old actor told the Sky News.
‘And I can tell you this that we are this close to making a film on Luther, Elba said while promoting his current show In The Long Run , a semi-autobiographical comedy based on his growing up years on an estate in London.
Luther had a five season run and ended on a cliffhanger.
Both Elba and series creator and writer Neil Cross have spoken about the possibility of bringing the detective back in a movie.
