Luther fans – may we have your attention please?

A Netflix Luther film is in the works, and we’re expecting BIG things. Of course, Idris Elba is returning as the titular DCI John Luther, but it looks like the world of our fave detective is also going to be expanding outside of the Big Smoke.

Empire has divulged some key info on the development of the film. The caption of their Instagram post reads: “WORLD-EXCLUSIVE 🚨 The Luther movie will “break out of the gritty streets of London,” Idris Elba tells Empire. Get your first details about the long-awaited Luther movie, link in bio and stories,” the caption read.”

Who has been cast in the Luther film?

Andy Serkis (Planet of the Apes, Venom) will star as the antagonist of the film – any further details on his character are very much TBC, though.

Winner of GLAMOUR’s Women of the Year award for Gamechanging Performer Cynthia Erivo – who has starred in many a musical, including The Color Purple and Wicked – will play a rival detective, while Irish actor Dermot Crowley is set to reprise his role as DSU Martin Schenk from the Luther television series.

What’s the plot of the Luther film?

We know that it’s not going to be set in London, that’s for sure. Elba opened up about this, and how it will open up the world of Luther, in an interview with Empire

“We break out of the gritty streets of London, we take it outside of that a little bit,” he explains. “And that’s great. It feels like now we’re entering a different life of the Luther experience.”

“We really peel the onion back here because we had the time and scale to do that. It also gives Neil [Cross] a lot more, you know, Luther-land to play with, in terms of where Luther can go, how he goes, what the landscape is.”

Elba has been teasing the existence of a Luther film for quite some time. Back in 2020, he told BAFTA: “With film, the sky is the limit. You can be a little bit more bold with the storylines, and a little bit more international, and a little more up the scale.”

The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed the following synopsis for the film: “[Luther] will have to contend with a double threat. Erivo is playing a detective who is also [his] nemesis while Serkis is the story’s criminal villain.”

What’s the release date for the Luther film?

According to Empire, the film is due for release in March 2023. So not long AT ALL.

Does the Luther film have a trailer yet?

Not yet, but we will keep this article updated, so keep checking back for any trailer-related developments!
