TV series `Luther` set for big screen
London: British psychological crime drama TV series `Luther` is heading to the big screen now.
Writer Neil Cross has penned a prequel movie script featuring the fictional detective`s rise to the top. Cross is keen that the shooting of the film begins next year with actor Idris Elba continuing in the main role, reports contactmusic.com.
"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," mirror.co.uk quoted Cross as saying.
"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," he added.
The writer hopes to strike a deal with Britain`s BBC Films as the crime series has proved to be a success with viewers since its launch in 2010.
