‘Luther’ Set For US Remake…Without Idris Elba As Lead

Published: Tuesday 18th Nov 2014 by Sam

‘Luther’ is US bound. However, the gritty British drama won’t be bringing its lead star Idris Elba along for its American incarnation. At least not in the capacity folk would expect.

Details below…

Deadline reports:

Fox Neil Crosshas given a rich put pilot commitment with a seven-figure penalty to the adaptation, which will be written/executive produced by the original series’ creator Neil Cross. The British series’ star, Idris Elba, is on board as executive producer. The project hails from 20th Century Fox TV, studio-based Chernin Entertainment and BBC Worldwide Prods.


Fox are ponying up major paper to produce the project, which won’t star Elba but will instead see his name attached in an executive producer capacity (cha-ching).

As ardent lovers of the original, it’ll be interesting to see how the US version compares.

    Luther is by far the best shorty tv-serie ever made. Even better than Band of Brothers. Yes
