Luther mastermind Neil Cross says he wants to create a spinoff of the fabulous crime miniseries, which would be set in the United States — and would follow Ruth Wilson's genius sultry sociopath, Alice. "The truth is I absolutely adore Alice," Cross tells Variety. His idea now is "very loosely of a mix between The Talented Mr. Ripley and The Last Seduction." So far, this is all just chatter — Cross hasn't talked about it with Wilson even, but he says "the BBC is very interested in the project." Uh, BBC, we're all very interested in the project.
