Cillian Murphy Returns as Tommy Shelby in ‘Peaky Blinders’ Film

Published:

Cillian Murphy is set to reprise his iconic role as Tommy Shelby in the highly anticipated ‘Peaky Blinders’ film. Netflix has officially greenlit the project, thrilling fans worldwide. The announcement was made on Netflix’s official X handle, stating, “Tommy Shelby returns. A Peaky Blinders Film starring Cillian Murphy is coming to Netflix.”

Expressing his excitement, Cillian Murphy said, “It seems like Tommy Shelby wasn’t finished with me…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.”

Tom Harper, known for his work on ‘Heart of Stone,’ ‘The Aeronauts,’ and ‘War & Peace,’ will direct the untitled film. Harper, who directed the latter half of Season 1 of ‘Peaky Blinders,’ shared his enthusiasm: “When I first directed ‘Peaky Blinders’ over 10 years ago, we didn’t know what the series would become, but we did know that there was something in the alchemy of the cast and the writing that felt explosive. ‘Peaky’ has always been a story about family – and so it’s incredibly exciting to be reuniting with Steve and Cillian to bring the movie to audiences across the world on Netflix.”

While plot details and additional casting remain under wraps, the film is set to go into production later this year and will be made in association with BBC Film. Fans of the series can look forward to an exciting continuation of the Shelby family saga.
