Netflix to stream Peaky Blinders film, Cillian Murphy to return

Netflix confirmed the news about the standalone Peaky Blinders film, starring Cillian Murphy. Although Peaky Blinders creator and screenwriter Steven Knight had confirmed it during a recent interview with Birmingham World, Murphy's representatives or the film's makers were yet to respond. Tom Harper will direct the film based on a screenplay by Knight.

Comprising six seasons, Peaky Blinders centres on the adventures of a gangster family in the late 1910s in England following World War I. It stars Murphy as Tommy Shelby, the most important family member, who makes all the big calls.

Murphy had earlier expressed his interest in being involved in the standalone Peaky Blinders film, as long as he found the right screenplay for it. Through Netflix's post, Murphy said, "It is very gratifying to be recollaborating with Steven Knight and Tom Harper on the film version of Peaky Blinders. This is one for the fans."

The makers are yet to reveal further details about the cast and crew.

Murphy was last seen in Small Things Like These, an Irish drama that premiered at the recent Berlin Film Festival.

The Peaky Blinders film will be out soon on Netflix.
