Series creator Steven Knight believes a Peaky Blinders movie is likely to become reality, per Digital Spy:
“We’re probably going to do it.”
Star Cillian Murphy has stated that he’s up for a Peaky Blinders movie:
“If the writing’s as good as it is for the show, then for sure, yeah”.
However, co-star Paul Anderson is more cautious:
“I don’t know if a Peaky Blinders film would work, or can work. Maybe when it’s sort of done, then maybe a movie? There is talk of it, and if I believed in the script enough, and thought it could work, then why not? But like I say, there’s very few TV shows that do that.
You wouldn’t want to end a good TV series with a bad movie. That wouldn’t be right. And TV’s such a great medium. A movie is over in an hour and a half, or two hours, and you shoot it for four months or less, and then it’s done. But we’ve been doing Peaky Blinders for four years now – four or five years. And I’d never spent much time with one character. It’s really special.”
