Neil Cross is a genius and here’s why. The creator of the hit Brit series Luther has written a prequel for the big screen. This way, newcomers get to meet this British badass, touches of Shaft cop played by the wonderful Edris Elba. And those of us Lutherites get to see how it all began.
Cross says it’s all in the works: “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.”
I say, goooooodeee! And maybe it’ll make me forget that he was cast in the dreadful Pacific Rim. Cause like damn. If you haven’t seen Luther you should. You can see the first two seasons on Netflix streaming.
