The next Peaky Blinders movie has some exciting news from Cillian Murphy. The next phase of Tommy Shelby’s narrative will be on the big screen, show creator Steven Knight stated, and since then, fans have been buzzing. Now, the man himself has an update that almost sent our flat caps flying.
After the hit series announced the sixth season would be its last, we were informed a movie was in the works. Knight told Deadline: “Covid changed our plans. But I can say that my plan from the beginning was to end Peaky with a movie. That is what is going to happen.”
In addition, Tommy Shelby has now given us an update on the film’s progress. In a recent interview with Today FM, Murphy was asked by hosts Dave Moore and Dermot Whelan if the script was close to being finished.
“Yes, I believe so,” the actor responded. “I’ve still not read it but that’s the plan, the plan is to make a film and to continue the story but in the cinematic world rather than on the television.”
“The television part of the story is finished. If there’s more stories to tell, I’m there. I just haven’t read it yet but it’s close apparently.”
We are ‘close’, people. Somebody cue up ‘Red Right Hand’ and chuck it on repeat.
