The actor has appeared in five seasons of the British crime series 'Luther' since 2010 as Detective John Luther, who is exceptionally brilliant at solving various criminal cases, but is notorious for his unconventional approach.

Idris Elba is determined to make a 'Luther' movie.

The London-born actor - who plays DCI John Luther in the crime-drama series - has confirmed he's working towards turning the TV show into a feature-length film.

Idris, 47, told Digital Spy: "I've maintained that I'd like to see it come to a film. That's what I think we're headed towards, a film. I'm looking forward to making that happen.

"I think what we'd like to attempt is use that as a blueprint to create it. It will be more murder, more Volvos, more frowning 'Luther'.

"Essentially we just want to try and take it to a much bigger remit and scale and perhaps international as well."

Last month, meanwhile, a report suggested Idris has been offered £5 million to join Apple TV+.

The acclaimed actor was reportedly tempted with the eye-watering sum of money to make TV shows and films for Apple, which is desperate to fight off competition from Netflix.
