Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight this past Wednesday (September 28) provided an update on the upcoming movie finale for the television series.
Peaky Blinders, which spanned six seasons, aired its series finale earlier this year, but the story is set to culminate with the movie.
A release date has yet to be confirmed for when that big screen outing might arrive, but, in an exclusive interview with Radiotimes.com, Knight confirmed that the movie script is almost complete.
“Nearly nearly nearly. It’s almost there,” Knight said.
“You know, we’ve got the shooting schedule, we’ve got the dates for when we start, so that’s all going to happen.”
While still unclear what exactly the plot of the film will be, Knight explained that it will incorporate real-life stories from World War II that are tied to the Shelby family.
“I’ve had this in mind for quite a while now. A story with the Peakys during the Second World War and I’ve picked up three true stories that I’m integrating into the film,” he said.
“I’m always interested because, with the Second World War, there was so much going on and so much death and destruction, that lots of things happened that didn’t really make it into the history books. So it’s those things I’m focusing on,” he continued.
