No More Luther For TV But Neil Cross Is Planning A Movie Version

LutherLuther‘s creator Neil Cross has been up in Edinburgh at the Television Festival and talking about the show’s past and it’s lack of future.

According to quotes transcribed by Digital Spy, Cross said:

The show’s finished. Idris [Elba], as he should be, he’s gone on to be a big movie star.

Obvious solution: to have Luther follow the man who actually plays him on to the big screen, and apparently, that really is the idea.

I think there will be a Luther movie – that’s the plan.

Previously, Cross has suggested that any Luther movie would be a prequel, but in Edinburgh, I understand, he may have said something about “tying off” story threads, even though this is absent from the Digital Spy report.

Narrative closure and a prequel timeframe aren’t mutually exclusive ideas, of course – see Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me for one example of how they can co-exist- but I guess we just don’t know what form a Luther movie would take, and won’t do for a good while.

Incidentally, Cross is expecting to write more Doctor Who but he doesn’t know when, and he’s yet to be clued in on quite what kind of Doctor they’ll be playing with next time beyond, of course, what he looks like and what accent he has.
