If you’re planning on getting stuck into a Netflix binge over Christmas, why not make it Luther? It’s perfect to get you in the Christmas spirit. I mean, who doesn’t love stories about serial killers, kidnappers, murderous taxi drivers, vigilantes and the greatest game of chance that you’ll ever see.
Remember those killers? Now that was a class episode!
While Season 4 of Neil Cross’ detective thriller didn’t quite hit the lofty highs of previous episodes, there’s no doubting that when Luuuufa is good, there’s very little that can match it.
A few weeks ago, we brought you the news that Idris Elba and Neill Cross were discussing a film adaptation and they’ve got some good news for you.
While discussing his new show, Hard Sun, Cross stated that he’s ‘absolutely’ interested in seeing DCI John Luther on the big screen.
When asked about a film adaptation, here’s what he said: “Absolutely. The fact is that Idris and I are bound in this shared relationship with this character and every TV [season] we think it’s going to be the end, not least because Idris is a very busy and has a successful career but we always miss him when it’s over and then I start coming up with ideas and we always come back for more. For no other reason than we love doing it. Hopefully, in some incarnation, the character will continue.
As for the next season of Luther, it appears that the ball is already rolling. “I delivered the final episode of Luther series five about an hour before leaving for the airport [to head to London for the Hard Sun premiere]. We’re in prep right now and we’re doing a bit of casting and we start shooting in January. For some reason, I always seem to shoot in the depths of winter,” said Cross.
We only have one request, bring back Alice.
