Idris Elba FINALLY returns as Luther in first pics from film set – and he looks worse for wear

IDRIS Elba has been spotted shooting for upcoming Luther spin-off movie for Netflix in association with the BBC, and it’s about time.  In the new feature-length film, the actor once again steps into the shoes of John Luther, a dogged DCI who often struggles to tell the difference between good and bad.  The snaps show him filming scenes at night alongside actress Cynthia Erivo, 35, a new cast member who will play a fellow detective.   Fans can see the 49-year-old decked out in his titular character’s familiar woollen overcoat and a blue shirt, and Cynthia in a smart navy military trench coat with gold buttons.   Idris also looked a little worse for wear in the shots, sporting minor wounds to his nose and cheek and just the slightest hint of a black eye.  The pair were surrounded by masked crew members as production continued on the movie, which Idris previously said he was looking forward to making. It is thought the project, which Netflix have described as “an epic continuation of the Luther saga reimagined for film”, will throw a couple of major problems the policeman's way.
