It seems that, despite the track record of US remakes of hit UK shows, one of the darkest and best British dramas in years is to get the upgrade…

Idris Elba’s hit show Luther, in which he plays a morally questionable cop who tracks murders, is going to be executive produced by Peter Chernin, Katherine Pope, Jane Tranter and Julie Gardner with Elba himself in a s a producer.

The series has been picked up for a pilot at Fox.

He s not expected to star in this remake however.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
