British actor Idris Elba was recently asked about the possibility of  BBC crime drama "Luther"  coming to the big screen.

Speaking to Sky News via a Zoom call, the actor said although there is not a real formal plan for "Luther" at the moment , "I've made it very clear that I'd like to see "Luther" come back as a film. And I can tell you this, that we are this close to making a film of Luther."

It is not the first time Idris Elba has talked about the Luther film.

In a 2018 interview with LADbible, he said, "For me it would be nice to take "Luther" up a scale. Make the storyline bigger, make it slightly more international."

Answering a question as to how the show would manage to tell a story in a 90-minute film, he said, "I think if we can figure out the formula to keep an audience captivated for an hour and a half, on a movie, I think "Luther" has definitely got the attributes to make that happen."
