By Order of Netflix, ‘Peaky Blinders’ Movie to Go Into Production Later this Year

Netflix has greenlit a Peaky Blinders feature film to continue the multi-award-winning gangster series set in the lawless streets of 1900s Birmingham.

Scheduled to go into production this September, the film has been written by the show’s creator, Steven Knight, who will co-produce alongside Caryn Mandabach, Cillian Murphy and Guy Heeley. It will be made in association with BBC Film.

Tom Harper (Heart of Stone), who directed a number of episodes in the first season in 2013 will return to helm the film whilst Academy Award® winner Cillian Murphy will reprise his role as Tommy Shelby, the character he played over six seasons between 2013 – 2022.

Commenting on the highly-anticipated feature film, Murphy says, “It seems like Tommy Shelby wasn’t finished with me … It is very gratifying to be recollaborating with Steven Knight and Tom Harper on the film version of “Peaky Blinders.” This is one for the fans.”

For now, the plot and further casting remain tightly under wraps but writer and co-producer Knight has said: “I’m genuinely thrilled that this movie is about to happen. It will be an explosive chapter in the Peaky Blinders story. No holds barred. Full on Peaky Blinders at war.”

Director Tom Harper added: “When I first directed “Peaky Blinders” over 10 years ago, we didn’t know what the series would become, but we did know that there was something in the alchemy of the cast and the writing that felt explosive. “Peaky” has always been a story about family – and so it’s incredibly exciting to be reuniting with Steve and Cillian to bring the movie to audiences across the world on Netflix.”
