Knight continued by praising Murphy,  “I’m so pleased for him because he deserves it. After every award that he won, he would text and say, ‘I really can’t wait to be doing Peaky.’ Confirming that none of this was going to change what we’re going to do next.”

Knight also revealed that filming will commence this September, saying, “It’s gonna happen. It’s gonna happen this September. I’m just doing the final polishes, which will continue up until the day before we start shooting. But we’re there. We’ve got everything sorted, we’ve got all the commitments we need, we are ready to go.”

Cillian is really up for it.” When asked what viewers can expect from the film, Knight replied, “I hope shocked and delighted and horrified and then delighted again and then shocked again!”

While no specifics have emerged regarding the plot of the upcoming Peaky Blinders movie, it’s anticipated to continue from the dramatic finale of season 6, where Tommy leaves his old life and is believed to be dead. It’s an exciting prospect.
