This update about the much-awaited adaptation film will give fans the assurance that the production is heading to a good start. First premiered in 2013, Peaky Blinders is a British crime drama that follows the lives of the most powerful criminal gang in Birmingham. Cillian Murphy plays Thomas Shelby, the most feared man in the show but most well-loved by fans.

The story wrapped up earlier this year with its sixth season, concluding the epic tale that brought so much tension and terror. Shortly after its final season, an announcement of a spinoff movie came forward. There is still no known detail about the plot, but it was confirmed that Steven Knight will write the script.

We’re going to shoot it at the studios in Digbeth, and on location in Digbeth in Birmingham. Digbeth and Small Heath [are] where the Peaky Blinders actually roamed, so it’s like Peaky’s coming home.”

If the schedule will be strictly followed, the movie will most likely premiere in 2024 or 2025, at the least. With Knight’s exciting update and Murphy’s willingness to reprise his role, fans will be assured that the start of filming is just way ahead.
