His performance has been widely praised, winning the actor two Golden Globes and the Royal Television Society’s Best Actor Award.

“I don’t think we’re going to make too many TV versions of it; I think the next step is to make a film,” Elba told the Radio Times in 2019. “This season is very much in the film’s field of vision. We have a skeleton of a film idea. And I’m not allowed to say too much, but I can say that this season is very much in the field of view of the film. If there is a film, then it will be somehow related to this season. “
Last year, creator Neil Cross also said the film was in the process of working with Idris on board. He did not reveal more details at the time and it will be some time before the project is completed. It is clear that Cross and Elba have always been aware of their desire to continue the story, but only so far it has received the green light.
“Ask Idris! We are – I don’t know what I’m allowed to say, which is an answer in itself!” Cross said then, according to the Radio Times. “Words are my job and I lost them all. We want to do more Luther. We will do more Luther. How and why, this is all that lies ahead, but we will do more Luther. “
In May, Elba unveiled an update to the project, telling Variety it was very close to getting the green light in hopes of shooting this month. As the actor explained. “We’re going into production, we’re keeping our fingers crossed, in September. I’m so excited that it’s been a long time. We’re very, very close to putting the green light on production.”

He will also appear in the upcoming western The harder they fall and was recently voted as the voice of Knuckles the Echidna in the sequel Sonic the Hedgehog 2.
