Peaky Blinders the gangster-based series is set to make its way onto the big screen. The series which ran for a total of six seasons was not enough for the audience. And now the series shall conclude its long legacy with a shorter yet equally thrilling movie.
The series began in 2013 and continued until 2022, becoming one of the series that lead to the success of the streaming channel Netflix. The first season itself laid the road to every fan’s heart, with the series winning several BAFTA awards. And in continuation of that story, Cillian Murphy brings back to us an update.
Cillian Murphy gives an update on Peaky Blinders
The actor who will be back in his Peaky Blinders role gave some exciting news about the movie’s progress. The 46-year-old gave an interview to Digital Spy talking about the movie. The story of which is supposed to be a continuation of where the series left off.
He was asked when the movie production will begin. To which he replied, “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.” The actor has not read the entire script yet, and although the production has not begun yet, it will do so soon enough.
Murphy confirmed that the movie will be a continuation of where the series ended. But before that, script confirmation is yet to be finalized and scenes are shot. The whole theme of the movie is loosely set on the screenplay writer’s Irish-Romani family that often told him of the Peaky Binders and their lifestyle.
And Cillian was quick to give credit to Knight, trusting his vision of the movie. But the screenwriter is quite busy and entangled with another project currently. So hopefully he should free himself so the wait for Peaky Blinders is not too long.
While the movie makers decide on the project’s release date as well as other details, you can binge-watch the previous six seasons available on Netflix until then, to keep up on the story so far.
