    Luther (Remake, Coming to Fox)

    Idris Elba to Produce, Neil Cross to Write
    Fox is taking a shot at a U.S. rendition of the BBC detective drama “Luther” with series creator Neil Cross.

    The network has given a put pilot commitment to the project, which will be written by Cross for 20th Century Fox TV, Chernin Entertainment and BBC Worldwide Prods.

    Original series star Idris Elba is on board as an exec producer but is not expected to star in the Yank version. Peter Chernin, Katherine Pope, Jane Tranter and Julie Gardner also exec produce.

    Elba has earned praise and kudos for his work as a savvy detective troubled by the brutal murder of his wife. The series ran for three seasons on the BBC, starting in 2010, and has aired Stateside on BBC America.

    Cross has said there are no plans for a fourth season in the U.K., but there has been chatter about a possible “Luther” feature.

    Deal for “Luther” has been in the works at Fox for some time. The network this season is airing another Brit-TV redo, “Gracepoint,” based on the ITV murder mystery “Broadchurch.” “Gracepoint” has drawn mixed reviews, in comparison to the original series, and only modest ratings for Fox.
