Hit BBC show Luther is set to hit the big screen as the writer of the series, Neil Cross revealed that a script had been written.

Fans of the show possibly have more than one film rendition to look forward to, as it was stated that the adaptation would be a prequel. It’ll also be a nice little introduction to the few who haven’t actually watched the series.

Speaking at Edinburgh Film Festival, Neil Cross said:

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 earlier days, when he is still married to Zoe, and the final scene in the film is the first of the initial TV series.

Who’s already excited?
