We now have a shoot date for the long-awaited ‘end to this chapter’ of the beloved Birmingham-based crime saga, Peaky Blinders. September!

Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight has confirmed that the Peaky Blinders film will go into production in September. We’ve known since the beginning of this year that a 2024 shoot was the aim but given that Knight and the project’s star, Cillian Murphy are both rather busy people, nobody was exactly sure where they’d fit the project in.

We now have an answer to that question. Speaking with The NME, Knight has confirmed that “it’s gonna happen this September” and added that he’s doing final tweaks on the script. He also added: “We’re there. We’ve got everything sorted, we’ve got all the commitments we need, we are ready to go” which certainly sounds like a final confirmation to us.

Steven Knight added that “Cillian [Murphy] is really up for it. So I can’t wait for it to start shooting.”

As we said, both men are rather busy at the moment. Knight is said to be penning a Star Wars script, not to mention writing a remake of Vertigo for Robert Downey Jr. Since winning his Best Actor Oscar, Cillian Murphy has been characteristically busy too, signing up for the period drama, Blood Runs Coal, a project for Ben Affleck and Matt Damon’s Artists Equity label called Small Things Like These, and 28 Years Later, the next film in the British-set zombie horror series.

With a shooting date now locked, we’d expect this one to release in 2025.

The production is set to take place at the Digbeth Loc studios complex that’s opening up in Birmingham, finally bringing the Birmingham-based crime drama to the city in which it is set. That’s all the news we have on this one at the moment but it’s good to know that after lots of waiting, the Peaky Blinders film is definitely shooting this year.
