This morning. “The TV Show is Incredible [and] fans will hopefully come to see the film, which is just bigger and more international.”
What we do know for sure is that the film’s increased budget will mean bigger action scenes, bigger scope, and a greater chance that Idris Elba will walk away from the massive explosion at some point.
‘Putting every episode Luther on a ridiculously small budget [we’ve been able] to have a wider canvas and a bigger budget to tell the stories we’ve always wanted to tell.” — Screenwriter and Luther said creator Neil Cross RadioTimes.com in 2021. “And we were really given the opportunity while remaining completely loyal.”
“We’re really peeling onions here because we’ve had the time and scale to do it,” Elba recently said. Empire magazine. “It also gives (screenwriter) Neal [Cross] much more, you know, Luther’s land to play with, in terms of where Luther can go, how he goes, what the landscape is like.”

But [Season 3’s] man moment under the bed? It won’t cost you a lot of money. Those moments are still intact.”
And, as the actor-director emphasizes, when the scale is increased, the person himself does not change. “Sure, you can be a little bolder in storylines and higher up the scale,” he says, “but John Luther will always be John Luther.”
