In another, Luther is shown trudging through snow on a frozen mountaintop, attired in his typical garb and woefully unprepared for the harsh climate in which he finds himself.


While details of the long-in-the-works film are being kept under wraps, “Luther” has been described as “an epic continuation of the ‘Luther’ saga reimagined for film.”

Directed by Jamie Payne, from a screenplay written by series creator Neil Cross, “Luther” also stars Cynthia Erivo, Andy Serkis and Jess Liaudin, with Dermot Crowley reprising his role as Martin Schenk.
