Idris Elba's maverick cop drama is definitely finished on TV after the shocking events of series three.
"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 early 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 allow them to bring back all the dead characters.
"That's where the ultimate Luther story will unfold, is in the big silver screen — London as a huge backdrop and a very menacing, horrible character to play against."
