Cynthia Erivo and Andy Serkis will be joining the mix in some capacity.

Season 5 of Luther aired in 2019, and Idris has not been shy about sharing his wishes to do a movie.

He told Entertainment Weekly: “I feel like John has to make some decision in jail,” he shared about his character’s fate.

He continued, “It’s quite clear that it would be very difficult for him to be a policeman moving forward. I think that’s a great setup for a movie. The last few seasons have been more like mini-movies, and film allows us to now have more dramatic pin points moments that are slightly more compressed and it’s a bigger but smaller dose of Luther.”

Fans are very excited to see the film, and Idris was trending on Twitter after it was announced.

Many fans are hoping this movie will include Ruth Wilson, who played his twisted love-interest.

they better be playing not announcing ruth wilson for the luther movie just to keep it a secret bc there’s no way she d worded like that, i love idris elba but the show just isn’t interesting without their dynamic/chemistry so they better bring alice back

Finally, this fan summed it up by saying it’s “one of the best TV shows ever created.” High praise.
