Cillian Murphy will reprise his role as Tommy Shelby in the upcoming Peaky Blinders movie, one that will mark a permanent change in perception of his character.
According to Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight, the movie will mark the series' conclusion, giving the Shelby family a feeling of closure.
Initially, Knight wanted to end the show with a seventh season. However, a movie enables Knight to concentrate on Tommy Shelby, the show's protagonist.
Although nothing is known about the movie's plot, Knight has provided a wealth of production information. Digbeth, a neighbourhood in the heart of Birmingham that was the setting for the departed Blinders, will serve as the site of filming. Knight has also stated that Paul Anderson will reprise his role as Arthur.
Recasting Sam Claflin as Oswald Mosely seems like an appropriate decision given that the movie will tell an untold World War II story and that Mosely was committed to the Nazi cause.
The Peaky group will revert to their Small Heath roots, and Tommy will probably struggle to keep up his international political presence in defiance of Mosely.
Unlike a seventh season, a movie gives Knight the chance to wrap up the Peaky Blinders chapter with far more depth because movies cost more to make. With conflict on several fronts, Knight can direct a satisfactory conclusion to the Shelby family saga.
Political intrigue can be presented with panache, the gritty Second World War can be fully depicted, and the grounded city of Birmingham can be given a fresh perspective.
Peaky Blinders' timetable positions it for a gripping conclusion with a huge scope, both domestically and internationally. These exterior circumstances and Tommy's interior difficulties will undoubtedly be explored in the film, offering the possibility to permanently change perceptions.
