The writer-director of Peaky Blinders, Steven Knight, provides an encouraging update on the recently announced film, including when filming is anticipated to begin. Peaky Blinders, which debuted in 2013, starred Cillian Murphy as Thomas Shelby, the head of the namesake criminal clan in 1920s Birmingham, England. Knight revealed plans to carry on the plot in a follow-up movie before the highly regarded series’ sixth season premiered in 2022. Knight previously said in a conversation with Radio Times that shooting on the Peaky Blinders film is anticipated to begin this year, even though announcements on the project are still scarce and far betwixt. If this strategy works, the film may aim for a 2025 release date.
The forthcoming movie’s formal plot has not yet been disclosed, and it’s unclear how much of the Peaky Blinders season 6 finale will set up future events. Knight has revealed that the motion picture will employ World War II as a background, suggesting that several years will have elapsed since the television program’s finale. Season 6 moved the story into the 1930s. This abrupt change in time could indicate that the plot of the film won’t be a straight repetition of previous occurrences.
Regarding the Peaky Blinders film cast, a lot of well-known stars are probably coming back. With the debut of Oppenheimer last summer, Cillian Murphy shot to international fame, and he’s stated many times that he would love to play Tommy again. It appears that Paul Anderson’s Arthur Jr. will also make a comeback in the film; however, it is unclear if other characters, such as Tom Hardy’s Alfie Solomons, will also make a comeback.
The Peaky Blinders film is expected to have several new characters in along with the returning ones. Tom Holland, who originally tried out for the show, was mentioned as a potential cast member by Knight earlier. It is entirely conceivable for the picture to be launched in the latter part or late of 2025 if production does start in the latter part of this year.
