Tommy Shelby is returning to Birmingham for a ‘Peaky Blinders’ film

Cillian Murphy confirmed for 'Peaky Blinders' film

Tommy Shelby isn't going anywhere my friends! In fact, the Irish actor Cillian Murphy has just confirmed he's on board for the upcoming Peaky Blinders feature film, returning as the beloved lead, Mr Tommy Shelby.

If you're a long-time fan of the hit television show, then read on for all the latest news and updates on the Peaky Blinders film.


Who is cast in the film?

Show creator Steven Knight said in an interview overnight that the series' star, Cillian Murphy (that's newly minted Oscar-winner Cillian Murphy to you), is "definitely" returning to the role of Tommy Shelby for the Peaky Blinders feature film.

In addition to Murphy, we'd love to see some of the other OG cast members call a back for the film, like Paul Anderson, Tom Hardy, Finn Cole, Sam Claflin, Anya Taylor-Joy, Aidan Gillen, Sam Neill, Adrien Brody, Paddy Considine, Annabelle Wallis, and others.


What is the plot?

The plot for the Peaky Blinders film is expected to be set during World War II, which is a few years after where the show wrapped-up. The show's creator, Knight, said the film would feel similar to the 10-year-long TV show, but that viewers should "expect the unexpected"


When will it be released?

Show creator, Knight, has already wrapped up the script, and has said in a recent interview that the plan was to begin filming the movie in September this year (in Digbeth, England). So, the film will likely have a tentative 2025 release date.

In the meantime, you can satiate yourself with all six seasons of Peaky Blinders, which you can stream on Netflix.


Where can I watch it?

There's no confirmation just yet about where the feature film will premiere – or whether it will see a theatrical release, a streaming release globally via Netflix, or both.
