Just last year we had another British show turn into a film in The Man from U.N.C.L.E.. Now it could be Peaky Blinders’ turn.
With Season 3 upon us, and the continued success of previous seasons, a movie is on the cards for the Peaky Blinders.
Caryn Mandabach, executive producer of the show had this to say in an interview for Digital Spy.
“We did have a conversation about potentially doing a movie. There are many people in America that love Peaky Blinders and plenty of movie stars that want to be in the movie. We heard Julia Roberts wants to do it – but this is hearsay… I don’t really know for sure. But there’s nothing until we get a season four from the BBC. The TV show has to take precedence. Sure, we sell it everywhere, and thank God for Netflix [who host the series in the US] – but it’s a very important thing to us, the BBC,”
Series Creator, Steven Knight
“I think it’d be great to have a series, then a film, a series, a film… why not?”
Having followed the series, I can attest that if the same creative minds behind the series will be involved in the movie, we’re in good hands, and it should turn out pretty good, and definitely not ruin the franchise.
Would you watch a Peaky Blinders film?
