Luther Getting an American Remake

Fox is developing an American adaptation of Luther because, apparently, the word Gracepoint doesn't ring a bell. According to Deadline, the network has given a put-pilot commitment to the series, which will be written and executive-produced by Neil Cross, who was behind the original. Idris Elba will also executive-produce, though it doesn't look like he'll reprise the role. Luther is indeed fantastic — scary and moody and intense — but it's still yet another a show about a troubled cop who takes things personally. It hard to think of something less essential than a remake of it.

Idris Elba is the man, love him as an actor right now.

I like the short seasons...Less overwhelming to watch all at one time. The 4th episode ending was crazy...

I forgot this show existed. I think I'll start watching. This is 90 minutes, 3 a season type of thing?
