Luther - Film is a Prequel & Alice May Get a Spin-Off

Speaking at the Edinburgh TV Festival, Cross finally confirmed that it will be a prequel. The script is done and he hopes to get the film made next year.

Cross says: "It will follow his [Luther's] career in the earlier days, when he is still married to Zoe, and the final scene in the film is the first of the initial TV series." That scene being the death of a serial paedophile Henry Madsen (Anton Saunders) whom Luther failed to save from a fall off a catwalk in a chemical factory.

Cross says that part of the reason for doing a prequel was to bring back various supporting characters - something they couldn't do considering how events wrapped at the end of the third series.

Amongst the cast members slated to return alongside Idris Elba are DS Justin Ripley (Warren Brown), Luther’s wife Zoe (Indira Varma), and DCI Ian Reed (Steve Mackintosh).

Uncertain to return/cameo are DSU Rose Teller (Saskia Reeves), DSU Martin Schenk (Dermot Crowley), Benny Silver (Michael Smiley), Mark North (Paul McGann), or DCI Erin Gray (Nikki Amuka-Bird).

Unfortunately, by going the prequel route, the one character who won't make an appearance is the popular and murderous Alice Morgan (Ruth Wilson). Cross says Alice may return, however, as the lead in her own spin-off series.

Cross says: "The BBC is very interested in the project. The truth is I absolutely adore Alice! We're kind of thinking very loosely of a mix between The Talented Mr Ripley and The Last Seduction."

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
