After a two-year break and the announcement of the final end of filming of the popular series "Peaky Blinders" about the life of a British criminal group in the early 19th century, director Steven Knight confirmed the continuation of the movie in the format of a film. Cillian Murphy, who won an Oscar for Oppenheimer, will play the lead role of Thomas Shelby, which made fans incredibly happy.

What is the upcoming movie about?

After the logical conclusion of the series in season 6, which described the 1930s, the next time period should be the Second World War. However, it will be a new full-length movie. "Peaky (caps - Ed.) are coming to an end in this incarnation. But we're making a movie that will also tell the story of the [Shelby] family and the stories of World War II," Knight said about the end of season 6 and the filming of the new one, which seems to have a completely different plot, although it is based on the series.

New actors of "Peaky Blinders"

Earlier, the director partially revealed the idea of the upcoming movie, which was referenced in the series. "In the sixth episode [of Season 6], we introduced a new generation, and it will be part of what happens in the movie. I think it's about finding those actors who you just look at and think, 'There you are. That's the future," he said in an interview with Esquire.

We might see Liverpool actor Stephen Graham, Amber Anderson, who played Diana Mitford, and James Freshville as Jack Nelson in the new movie. All of them have already appeared in the series, so they may continue filming in the movie.

Of course, Cillian Murphy will still be the main character. After the 2024 Academy Awards ceremony, the actor admitted: "I loved playing him. He was exhausting and so wildly different for me that every time I went back was like a journey."

Director Steven Knight, in particular, praised Murphy for winning his first Oscar for the lead role in Oppenheimer: "It was well deserved. I mean, he's brilliant, and he's such a wonderful person. He leads the line when we shoot, and he's so poised and straightforward. He deserves everything he gets."
