Peaky Blinders Creator Steven Knight Says A Movie 'Is Going To Happen'

Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight has said a movie is 'going to happen'.

Yesterday, fans were given a double whammy of news when it was revealed that filming for season six had kicked off and that the upcoming season would be the last.

But it seems as though this won't be the last we see of the Shelby's, as Knight told Deadline: "Covid changed our plans.

"But I can say that my plan from the beginning was to end Peaky with a movie.

"That is what is going to happen."

In a statement, he said: "Peaky is back and with a bang.

"After the enforced production delay due to the Covid pandemic, we find the family in extreme jeopardy and the stakes have never been higher.

"We believe this will be the best series of all and are sure that our amazing fans will love it.

"While the TV series will be coming to an end, the story will continue in another form."

Speaking to LADbible all the way back in 2019, he said: "I would [consider doing a film].

"The end scene is the end of this as a television series the way it is now, but it's certainly not ruling out spin offs or a movie.

"You know there's a Peaky Blinders ballet that is being performed today and it's brilliant, it's mind-blowing.

"So I think there's something about Peaky where it's a world, lots of people have different interpretations of that world, so I'm all for keeping the spirit going."

While Anthony Byrne - who directed season five and is directing for season six - has also previously said it '100 percent could work' as a film.

He told LADbible: "I think a film 100 percent could work, but I'd rather watch six hours than two. Simple as that.

"You can go deeper into characters and spend more time in their world I think."

As yet, there's no release date for either season six or the movie - but we'll keep you updated when there is.
