Does the Shelby family have unfinished business?

Fans believe that Peaky Blinders could be on its way back after reports claimed that Cillian Murphy had met with the show’s creator Steven Knight in Soho.

Knight, 64, recently said that he had finished a script for a film adaptation of the hit period drama series.

Murphy starred as main character Tommy Shelby in the hit TV show which aired its final season in 2022.

After his recent success in Oppenheimer, which has led to a Best Actor nomination at this year’s Oscars, Knight looks to be lining up the 47-year-old for his next project, with one source telling The Mirror that the pair were spotted at The French House pub, in Soho, London.

“His meeting with Steven last week makes a return look all the more likely,” the source told the publication.

“They sat for over an hour together and were deep in conversation. So for Peaky fans, there’s hope he will be back.”

Asked about a possible Peaky Blinders return back in July, Murphy told the Radio Times he would “wait and see”.

“I would love to do a movie if there’s more story to tell. I’ll wait and see but I have no update for you on that,” the actor said.

“It started off as a tiny show on a Sunday evening and it grew very slowly and without any hype, without any billboards, without any advertising campaign.

“It just grew because people told other people to watch it. I’m really proud that it has never plateaued and each series has become richer and stronger than the last.”

Murphy is set to star in upcoming Irish film Small Things Like These, which he will also produce alongside Ben Affleck and Matt Damon.
