Idris Elba has revealed that a Luther movie is "definitely on the cards".

The actor - who starred as Dci John Luther in the original BBC series - said that he and creator Neil Cross are currently talking about the project.

Speaking to Kate Garraway on ITV's Lorraine, he said: "That is definitely on the cards, we've been really lucky that Luther is [so popular]… it's a small show, we did four episodes and we got such a massive following worldwide, so Neil Cross [creator of Luther] and I are aiming to do the film.

"I'm speaking to him as we speak… and we're trying to pull it together. 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," he added.
