Cillian Murphy to Return for Peaky Blinders Movie Shooting This Fall

Tommy Shelby is back in action: Newly minted Oscar winner Cillian Murphy will return to star in a Peaky Blinders movie that begins shooting this fall.

The confirmation comes from series creator Steven Knight, who told the UK’s Birmingham World that Murphy “definitely is returning for” the film, adding: “We’re shooting it in September just down the road in Digbeth.”

Peaky Blinders, which aired for six seasons on Netflix, followed a notorious gang in 1919 Birmingham, England, led by the fierce Tommy Shelby (Murphy), a crime boss set on moving up in the world no matter the cost. The series wrapped up in 2022, but Knight hinted at the time that a movie was in the works: “I can say that my plan from the beginning was to end Peaky with a movie. That is what is going to happen.”

Murphy, of course, has seen his fame shoot into the stratosphere in the past year after starring as theoretical physicist J. Robert Oppenheimer in the Christopher Nolan film Oppenheimer. The movie was a surprise smash at the box office and earned seven Oscars at this year’s ceremony, including Best Picture and Best Actor for Murphy.
