Creator Steven Knight has shared some details about the film's plot

He told "I know what's going to happen in those stories and it's about a sort of untold story that happened in the Second World War, which Peakys are going to be involved in."

He added to Deadline that had the series continued for a seventh instalment, he "probably wouldn't" have ventured into such a big topic, but "because it's a movie [...] I think we need a sort of gear change."

Who will star in the Peaky Blinders movie?

Given that season six ended with Tommy alive and well rather than terminally ill, as he had been led to believe, it seems viewers can expect to see Cillian Murphy make a triumphant comeback as the leader of the Brummie-based gang.

Although casting for the film hasn't been officially announced yet, while chatting to Deadline, Stephen confirmed that those heavily involved in the season six storyline - so Sam Claflin, Amber Anderson, James Frecheville, Aneurin Barnard and Neil Maskell, to name just a few - will "figure in the film".

We've got our fingers crossed that we see our favourite members of the Shelby family, played by Natasha O'Keeffe, Paul Anderson, Sophie Rundle, Aimee-Ffion Edwards, Kate Phillips and Conrad Khan, make a comeback too.

When will the Peaky Blinders movie be released?

There's no news yet on when the movie will be released, and given that season six of Peaky Blinders only just wrapped, it seems fans should be prepared to wait a while.

It's been reported that production is scheduled to kick off in early 2023, allowing the cast and crew a lengthy break. With that in mind, we predict that we'll be will be sitting down to watch the Peaky Blinders movie in cinemas sometime in 2024.
