Fox has just placed an order for a ‘cast-contingent’ pilot of ‘Luther', a series based on the popular BBC drama starring Idris Elba. But the minds behind the potential series now have the unenviable task of finding someone to fill the shoes of British star Elba, who will be sticking around to executive produce the American project.

‘Luther’ follows the near-genius homicide detective John Luther, who posses a brilliant mind, which often isn't enough to save him from the dangerous violence of his passions. Neil Cross, who wrote and executive produced the original BBC series, will also pen the US remake.
