Peaky Blinders creator: 'Expect the unexpected from the movie'
Prolific screenwriter Steven Knight offered an update to RadioTimes.com.
Steven Knight has told Peaky Blinders fans to "expect the unexpected" when it comes to the upcoming feature film, which is due to pick up where the hit television series left off.
A big screen instalment of the crime drama, which stars Cillian Murphy as Birmingham gangster Tommy Shelby, had been rumoured for a long time, with Knight confirming its existence in 2021.
However, details have been scarce in the time since, besides a reveal that the film will be set during World War II, despite Knight's original plan to end the story just prior to the conflict taking hold.
However, he did cryptically mention that the Peaky Blinders movie will be "the same but different", adding that viewers should "expect the unexpected", including new characters joining the established favourites.
Of the hotly anticipated project, Knight concluded: "It's coming and it's soon... Yeah, it's going to be fun."

Before reprising his popular role as antihero Tommy Shelby, Murphy is reuniting with superstar director Christopher Nolan for this summer's Oppenheimer, where he'll portray the creator of the atomic bomb.
Previously, the actor has been coy about the prospect of more Peaky Blinders, saying in October: "The television part of the story is finished. If there’s more stories to tell, I’m there, I just haven’t read it yet – but it’s close, apparently."
