Peaky Blinders may have come to an end, but we may be saying hello to the gang soon enough.

After six seasons, the Cillian Murphy-led series aired its final episode in April. The finale had a run-time of 1 hour and 21 minutes which served as a dry-run for the upcoming feature film spin-off. 

Creator Steven Knight has been hard at work on the forthcoming flick, and the good news is that we now have an end date in sight. 

“I’m nearly done writing it,” Knight said during a radio interview with Heart FM in the UK. “We’re going to shoot it at the studios in Digbeth, and on location in Digbeth in Birmingham. Digbeth and Small Heath [are] where the Peaky Blinders actually roamed, so it’s like Peaky is coming home. We’re hoping we’ll be shooting within 18 months.”

The movie will be the untold story of what happened in the Second World War, in which the Peakys are going to be involved.

Knight has remained mum on which members of the cast will be returning for the film, only saying, “There’s going to be some familiar faces and new faces that will hopefully be quite surprising.”
