creator Neil Cross
has revealed that he is planning a film spinoff.
The writer told BBC Radio 4's Front Row
that he intends to make the movie once the BBC crime drama has ended.
"We'll wrap up Luther
as a TV show, but I think we'll then probably make the leap to the big screen," he said.
Cross added that the television incarnation of Luther
would have a "powerful and moving ending".
"The final scene of the final episode is great and we wouldn't want to continue [beyond that]," he explained. "We'll go out big and leave it at that."
Last year, Luther
star Idris Elba admitted that he is also keen to make a film based on the show
"I really do want to make Luther
into a film," he said. "I think that's where the ultimate Luther
story will unfold - the big silver screen."
The Golden Globe-winning drama
will return for a third run of four 60-minute episodes
