During a radio interview on Heart FM, Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight spoke about the film that will soon be based on the series, revealing.
it will be shot in his Birmingham studios. Not only that: Knight added that filming should start “within eighteen months”.
Here is what Knight said:
We will shoot it in Digbeth’s studios, and on location in Digbeth, Birmingham. Digbeth and Small Heath are the areas where the Peaky Blinders actually hang out, so it’s like the Peaky are coming home.
The film, according to the author, will see the return of a large part of the cast, which includes Cillian Murphy, Paul Anderson, Joe Cole and Tom Hardy , but there will also be “some new faces that, I hope, will be quite surprising”.
