Luther alum Idris Elba says he is glad to be working alongside Matrix star Keanu Reeves in the third instalment of Sonic the Hedgehog. The actor said this during the promotions of his upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog spin-off series, Knuckles.

Sonic the Hedgehog 3, which hails from Paramount Pictures, is an upcoming action-adventure comedy based on the video game series published by Sega.

While Elba will reprise his voice role of Knuckles the Echidna, Reeves will lend his voice to the character of Shadow the Hedgehog in the film.

“I’m a big fan of his”, said Elba in an interview with IGN website, “I’ve heard that he’s a fan of mine, and we are destined to make something together. So, here we go.” Elba and Reeves previously shared credits voicing characters in Cyberpunk 2077.
