A Peaky Blinders movie could be on its way
Could Tommy Shelby and co be hitting the big screen?
Press Sammy Maine, 26th April 2016 Peaky Blinders is about to embark on its third season but we could be getting even more of the gang, with a movie rumoured to be on the cards.
Starring Cillian Murphy, the show has proved popular across the pond and now show creator Steven Knight and executive producer Caryn Mandabach have revealed that there's been discussions about a possible film spinoff.
Speaking to Digital Spy, Mandabach said: "We did have a conversation about potentially doing a movie.
"There are many people in America that love Peaky Blinders and plenty of movie stars that want to be in the movie. We heard Julia Roberts wants to do it – but this is hearsay… I don't really know for sure."
Knight however, stressed the importance of bagging a fourth season before any big screen antics begin. "I think it'd be great to have a series, then a film, a series, a film… why not?" he said.
"But there's no nothing until we get a season four from the BBC," he continued. "The TV show has to take precedence. Sure, we sell it everywhere, and thank God for Netflix [who host the series in the US] – but it's a very important thing to us, the BBC."
Peaky Blinders season three is set to air on May 5 on BBC 2. Watch the trailer below.
