Netflix confirmed via Twitter on Tuesday that the BBC series Luther will be made into a film. Lead actor Idris Elba said last year that there were plans for a film, but that had not yet been confirmed.

Netflix reports that Elba is once again taking on the role of the detective. His Lord of the Rings -acteur Andy Serkis and Cynthia Erivo, familiar from the film B ad Times at the El Royale , was added to the cast. It is not yet known when the film will be released.

Luther has been on display since 2010 and was a big hit. Elba won several awards for his role. The fifth and final season was released in 2019.

Luther is about a dedicated detective who tries to keep his private life on track while dealing with the psychological factors that come with crime.
