It has been two years since the last season of the British series "Peaky Blinders" aired on BBC One.
After Radio Times reported that Knight is busy with the script of the movie and hopes to start shooting the movie in mid-2024, Steven Knight, the screenwriter of the series, made a statement.
Knight said of "Peaky Blinders", "I'm just working on the final pieces at the moment. I sit down at the keyboard and I start. It's a bit like dreaming for me. You sit there and all these things come. Then you read it again and you think: 'This is pretty good, but where did it come from?'... The plan is to start shooting this in the middle of next year."
This was a quick turnaround. All the better because series star Cillian Murphy is now a name in the limelight thanks to his role in "Oppenheimer" last year.
Murphy told RT last year, "I would love to do a movie if there are more stories to tell. I'll wait and see, but I don't have any updates for you on that."
Sophie Rundle made similar comments about a potential "Peaky Blinders" movie, saying that she had heard nothing but fan appetite for it.
Knight previously told RT that a "Peaky Blinders" movie would be set during World War II and that fans should "expect the unexpected."
