The Peaky Blinders in the movies
The series garnered, slowly but steadily – concentrated in its last seasons – a loyal audience. And the director explained that one of the possibilities that the film opens up for him is “allow those latecomer fans to see Peaky Blinders together in a movie theater.
“I’m really looking forward to creating an event of this story that people can watch in a communal way. The communities on social media are very strong and people talk to each other, but actually being together physically for this is going to be very interesting.” he added.
For his part, the Irish actor Cillian Murphy, who during these years offered an unmistakable interpretation of the leading role, He said days ago that he does not know what the film will be aboutbut that he is very interested in reincarnating the leader of the Shelbys.
“I’d be as happy as anyone if I could read the script. But I think it’s good for all of us to give each other a little break. That was always a healthy thing to do and then we can regroup.” said the actor who will play the physicist Oppenheimer in the next Christopher Nolan biopic.
“Steve is a very busy and in-demand writer, but most of all I know he loves writing for ‘Peaky Blinders,’ he adores it. So when the time comes, if there’s more story to tell, he’s going to be there.” of the Shelbys.
The end and the possibility of spin-offs
The confirmation that the English series produced by the BBC would have a film sequel came from Knight in the middle of last year, when he also announced that it will be “probably the end of the road for the Peaky Blinders as we know them”
The also producer and screenwriter said that there could be “programs related” to the universe of Peaky Blindersimplying that several spin-offs may come out of the series, a term that he preferred not to use.
However, if any spin-off stories emerge in the future, Knight clarified that they won’t necessarily be overseen by him. “I would pass the post,” he said.
