Default FOX to remake Luther

Quote:
It would appear that FOX's modestly-received Broadchurch remake, Gracepoint (starring original series star David Tennant), hasn't stopped the network from considering more U.K. adaptations.

Next on the American reboot slate is Neil Cross' gritty crime series Luther, which starred Idris Elba as an intense Police Inspector who often went above and beyond to catch maniacs. Variety reports that FOX has given a "hefty put-pilot commitment" to a new Luther adaptation, which creator Cross is helping with.

Cross will pen the pilot script and executive produce, with series star Idris Elba also attached as an executive producer as well. As of now, Elba is not expected to reprise his leading role for the FOX remake like Tennant did with Gracepoint.

There had been no plans to continue the BBC Luther series past the initial three seasons, though Cross has been vocal at certain points about wanting to make a Luther movie. Cross most recently brought the pirate drama Crossbones to NBC, which he created, wrote, and produced.

No Idris Elba or Ruth Wilson = No Buys!

Will this seems entirely unnecessary - Wilson and Elba elevated the show with their performances so without them it might be fairly average.

I don't care for remakes usually but I also don't detest them like some but this just seems stupid. Luther IS Elba and so much of it worked because the cast were who they were (especially Elba and Wilson). If they're telling the same stories with a different location and cast then I just don't get it at all. If they're changing the stories but keeping the characters with new actors then they may as well just make it a new show and say inspired by Luther rather than being a remake.

Don't take this the wrong way but Americans are so odd with their need to make everything their own. America produces a great show and the UK brings it over and promotes it as a great American show. UK produces a great show and Americans feel the need to change everything UKish about it and make it their own show.

Been wanting to watch Luther. After seeing Ruth Wilson in The Affair she can act and Idris is just awesome.
