Idris Elba as Luther

Story by Jack Foley

IDRIS Elba has confirmed that he is working on a movie version of his hit BBC series Luther.

Speaking to Kate Garraway on ITV’s Lorraine while promoting his current film, Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom, the British actor said that he and creator Neil Cross were working together to ensure that it happens.

“We’re trying to pull it together,” he said. “It’s an ambitious project because it’s a television show but we suspect that it’s going to be as successful on TV and on film as well.”

Cinema fans can see Elba’s critically-acclaimed performance as Nelson Mandela when Long Walk To Freedom opens in cinemas today.
