Luther fans who have been waiting on the film adaptation of the popular UK crime series have received an update from Idris Elba.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Elba, who plays the title character, told Sky News during an interview about his show In The Long Run that a Luther film is getting closer to becoming a reality.

“There isn’t a real format plan for Luther at the moment. I’ve made it very clear that I’d like to see Luther come back as a film. And I can tell you this, that we are this close to making a film of Luther.”

Rumors of a Luther film have been around for years now, but with Elba’s news update, perhaps fantasy will finally become reality.
