Cillian Murphy is currently one of the Hollywood stars dominating the big screen following last week’s release of Oppenheimer.
And it’s not the first time he’s worked with the filmmaker either, having appeared in five of his other films including The Dark Knight, Inception and Dunkirk.
The series came to an end in 2022, and fans have long hoped it would not be the complete end of Peaky.
And after long talks of a spin-off film and some recent comments from Murphy, perhaps we might finally be closer to seeing the family return.
In an episode for HAPPY SAD CONFUSED during the Oppenheimer press tour, host Josh Horowitz asked the star: “Does it feel like Peaky is in the rear view now, have you separated yourself from Tommy and that experience or is it too soon to say that?”
Murphy explained that he used to think he wouldn’t really give much perspective on it until a ‘few years have passed’.
He said: “It was 10 years of my life playing that character. I think the show succeeded because the writing was so phenomenal.”
The star went on to give a rather positive update for Peaky Blinders fans: “If there’s a movie there, and if there’s more story to tell, I’ll definitely have the conversation. I think we ended really, really, well in the TV version of it.
“And I’m very proud that the show never plateaued in my opinion. I think each series was richer than the last, so I’m very proud that we achieved that.”
Murphy went on to explain his pride in the show still gaining ‘new fans’ from the ‘beauty’ of streaming.
Peaky Blinders is currently available for fans - new and old - to binge on both BBC iPlayer and Netflix.
The actor previously told Rolling Stone he’d ‘love to do’ a film if ‘there’s more story there’.
“But it has to be right. Steve Knight wrote 36 hours of television, and we left on such a high. I'm really proud of that last series.
"So, it would have to feel legitimate and justified to do more.”
