In a recent interview with Heart Breakfast, Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight gave an update on the film's progress.
The highly-anticipated feature length spin-off film is set to be on track to begin filming in 2023. Knight confirmed that he is almost done writing the film, "Yes, I'm writing it right now. I'm nearly done writing it and we're going to shoot it...I'm setting up some film and television in Digbeth in Birmingham." Knight continues to go into details regarding where he hopes to shoot the feature film. He adds, "We're going to shoot it at the studios in Digbeth and on location in Digbeth in Birmingham." He explains his reasoning, "Digbeth and Small Heath is where the Peaky Blinders actually roamed. So it's like Peaky's coming home basically."
When he was asked if fans will be seeing some familiar faces for the film, Knight reassured and teased, "Of course, and some new faces that will hopefully be quite surprising." Like in previous discussions, he still hopes to start shooting in 2023, "I'm hoping that we'll be shooting in...within 18 months." He added, "But I'm just really looking forward to having a Peaky event where people can watch it communally. I mean, the social media community is so strong and people talk to each other. But to actually be together physically will be really interesting."
This April saw the ending of the Peaky Blinders sixth and final season. Fans will just have to wait for the release of the feature film and stay tuned for upcoming announcements.
