Cillian Murphy’s Peaky Blinders Movie Coming to Netflix

The highly anticipated Peaky Blinders film is officially set to premiere on Netflix. Fans of the popular British series can look forward to seeing their favorite characters on the big screen, with Cillian Murphy returning to reprise his iconic role as Thomas Shelby. The film will be directed by Tom Harper, who directed the first season of the show, and written by the series creator, Steven Knight. Both Harper and Knight will also be involved in producing the film alongside Caryn Mandabach, Guy Heeley, and Cillian Murphy himself.

Cillian Murphy expressed his excitement about returning to the role of Tommy Shelby. “It seems like Tommy Shelby wasn’t finished with me…It is very gratifying to be working again with Steven Knight and Tom Harper on the film version of ‘Peaky Blinders’. This is one for the fans,” the actor said in a statement. This sentiment is echoed by the show’s fans, who have eagerly awaited news of the film since the series concluded.

Director Tom Harper also shared his enthusiasm about the project. “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 chemistry 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,” Harper said. The director’s return to the franchise promises to bring the same intensity and quality that made the original series a global hit.

Steven Knight, the mastermind behind the Peaky Blinders series, is also thrilled about the upcoming film. “I’m genuinely thrilled that this movie is about to happen,” Knight shared. “It will be an explosive chapter in the ‘Peaky Blinders’ story. No holds barred. Full on ‘Peaky Blinders’ at war.” Knight’s involvement in writing and producing the film ensures that it will stay true to the original spirit of the series, with all the drama, action, and intrigue that fans have come to expect.

While specific plot details and the remainder of the cast have not yet been announced, the production is set to begin later this year in association with BBC Film. This partnership suggests that the film will maintain the high production values that characterized the television series. The involvement of BBC Film also hints at a continuation of the deep, complex storytelling that has been a hallmark of Peaky Blinders.

The show’s blend of historical fiction and modern music, along with its strong performances, particularly by Murphy, has garnered a dedicated fanbase. The announcement of the film is likely to reignite interest in the series and attract new viewers to discover the world of the Peaky Blinders.
