In what could potentially be horrible news, FOX has ordered a pilot for a remake of the British drama Luther.

[Luther](series:205901) revolves around John Luther as a "near-genius murder detective whose brilliant mind can't always save him from the dangerous violence of his passions."

In what will hopefully save this from following the same fate of previous UK to US remakes, Neil Cross, who created the original series, will write and will also executive-produce the remake alongside star Idris Elba.

I will more than likely watch it, but I'm not expecting much. I also hope they hire someone as brilliant as Idris Elba!

What do you think about the American remake? Any casting ideas?


Are you happy Luther will be getting an American re-make?
