Steven Knight Sees The Peaky Blinders Movie As A Homecoming For The Series
“Peaky Blinders” fans who are mourning the end of the show will be happy to hear that series creator Steven Knight is writing a spin-off movie set in the show's universe. In an interview with Heart Breakfast, Knight explained how he views the film as a homecoming because of the locations that he’ll be filming in.
“Peaky Blinders” might be a fictionalized tale of an ambitious gangster family and their rise to power in post-war Britain, but it's heavily inspired by a real-life street gang that went by the same name. Knight's fascination with the real-life gang seems natural considering he grew up hearing stories about the Peaky Blinders from his parents and witnessed them in action.
