Peaky Blinders: Tommy Shelby back? This condition posed by Cillian Murphy Follow us

The Peaky Blinders haven’t given up yet. While rumors are circulating about the development of a spin-off of the series, a film will orchestrate the exit of Tomas Shelby. The project could even arrive faster than expected, as explained showrunner Steven Knight in an interview with Radio Times: I’m refining the script at the moment.. I sit down at my keyboard and leave. It’s a bit like having a dream to me. We sit there and let things happen. And then we read it again, and we say to ourselves “It’s pretty good, but where did I get that from? “. The idea is to start filming in mid-2024.

This condition posed cash by Cillian Murphy

In the meantime, fans are dreaming of seeing Cillian Murphy donning the Thomas Shelby costume again in the feature film Peaky Blinders. At the microphone of the Desert Island Discs show, the interpreter of Robert Oppenheimer set his conditions: “If there is more story to tell, and si Stephen Knight delivers a script like I know he can, then I will be there. I mean if we want to see 50-year-old Tommy Shelby, I’ll be there.”. The actor will soon return to Netflix in a radically different role. He will be involved in his first feature film as a producer. His company Big Things Film, co-founded with Alan Moloney, will finance the adaptation of the novel Shy by Max Porter, the story of a violent school dropout who finds himself in a residence for juvenile delinquents threatened with closure.

This other ambitious project from the creator of Peaky Blinders

Involved in the time-consuming writing of Peaky Blinders, Steven Knight has already had the opportunity to dabble in cinema. In 2019, he wrote the script and directed Serenity with Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway. If he should not direct the film derived from the series led by Cillian Murphy, the showrunner will sign the script for the next chapter of the saga Star Wars on the big screen, New Jedi Order, with Daisy Ridley in Rey Returns, aka the last of the Skywalkers. In the meantime, we will find his name in the credits of Maria, the new film by Pablo Larraín with Angelina Jolie. We will be following all of this very closely in the coming months!

Peaky Blinders: an actor convicted of drug possession Follow us

By order of the Peaky fookin' Blinders! » It is with this rallying phrase bellowed into a microphone that Paul Anderson made an impression in the cult series Peaky Blinders. The British actor plays Arthur Shelby. The eldest of the Shelby clan in the shadow of his younger brother, Tommywho became the head of the family despite the birthright. Nevertheless, Arthur remains loyal to his little brother who has become the patriarch of the Shelby clan. It's the capo. That is to say Tommy's right arm, the one who manages the different men in the gang to avoid conflicts and other problems in the ranks. It is with this explosive role but touching that Paul Anderson became famous. A dark character grappling with a strong addiction to drugs. Fiction is now catching up with reality since Paul Anderson has just been convicted… for drug possession!

Arthur's demons, Paul's legal setbacks

In Peaky Blinders, Arthur Shelby sinks for a time into an addiction to numerous drugs. His interpreter, Paul Anderson, has just suffered a fine a little more than €1500 (i.e. £1345). The reason ? The actor was convicted of drug possession. According to Daily Mailhe was arrested the day after Christmas in a pub not far from his home. The police intervened after a phone call from the manager of the establishment who felt “crack fumes” coming from the toilet. Issue : Paul Anderson squatted in the toilet for a few minutes before. Obviously, the police arrested the actor-star of Peaky Blinders. Caught almost in the act, the latter did not try to play gangster with the police. Conversely of his character in Peaky Blinders.

Paul Anderson pleads guilty

Oh what a great catch. After the arrest of Paul Anderson, the police take stock of the drugs found on the suspect. Crack, therefore, but also amphetamines, diazepam and pregabalin. The latter two being prescription substances before being sometimes used to get high. Once at the police station, Paul Anderson admitted the facts with which he was accused. He pleaded guilty to all four drug possession charges. His lawyer, whose statements were reported by the Daily Mail, Paul Anderson would be too marked by his role as Arthur Shelby. A score of a frustrated, brutal man, addicted to alcohol and drugs. The lawyer states “He is often recognized and does his best to please fans by getting into the skin of his character”. Still according to him, it would be fans on site who allegedly suggested that Paul Anderson take drugs.

A role of dealer in Top Boy

Obviously, no fans were found on site with Paul Anderson. The latter was nevertheless taken on board with a young man (and a 17-month-old infant!). If this is the first time that the actor has been charged with drug possession, his career is already marked by illicit substances. Before the global success of Peaky BlindersPaul Anderson played a small-scale drug dealer, drug user and violent with his clients, in the crime series Top Boy. An excellent urban drama which was one of the actor's first notable and notable roles on the small screen. We could even imagine that he was approached to play Arthur Shelby in Peaky Blinders after his rough formwork removal service in Top Boy. It remains to be seen whether Paul Anderson will inject this misadventure with the police into his character for the future movie Peaky Blinders which is currently in preparation.

THE Peaky Blinders have not yet put their caps away for good. If the final film is currently in standbyas stated several times Cillian MurphyIt seems like Netflix kept some on hand. The famous platform wishes to create an extended universe around Peaky Blinders with the preparation of two spin-offs on the sidelines of the famous film not yet in the works.

In fact, Netflix wants to produce a first spin-off which should take place several years after the original series, in Boston, in the United States of America. A very interesting bridge with the parent series when we know the relationship with America in the middle of the 20th century and the notorious gangsterism which plagued Uncle Sam’s country during this period. Then, the platform plans to make a prequel about Polly, matriarch of the Shelby clan, aunt of Thomas Shelby, played by the late Helen McCrory in Peaky Blinders. A show which should look back on her rise as a woman in this men’s business against a backdrop of gypsy beliefs.

These two pieces of news will delight fans of Peaky Blinders. The original series ended brilliantly at the end of a twilight sixth season with a sumptuous finale. Steven Knight, creator of the show, has desperately wanted to get his film under construction as a conclusion for several years. Issue. This seems to be completely at a standstill at the time of writing these modest lines. And this despite the good will of its author and of Cillian Murphy who remains rather open to the idea of ​​taking over Thomas Shelby’s hat. The feature film, which does not yet have a script as it stands, is supposed to take place during the Second World War in order to complete the story of Thomas Shelby who is a veteran of the First. Additionally, in the final season of Peaky Blinderswe discover that Tommy has a hidden son, Dukewith a mysterious woman named Zelda. The young man has a considerable role in the last act of season 6. We can therefore imagine that the character could have an even more central role in the hypothetical closing film. Film which is, for the moment, only a fantasy for its author. And for the hardcore fanbase of Peaky Blinders.

The future series Harry Potter produced by HBO Max has already caused a lot of ink to flow. The project is not even at the pre-production stage yet, but Potterheads have made it clear that they do not want such a reboot. Impossible, even unthinkable, to remake the cult cinematographic saga, in serial format. Otherwise, Avada Kedavra !

Even with this strong argument, Potterheads have not lowered their wands. The latest information? A rumor says that Cillian Murphy, aka Tommy Shelby in Peaky Blinderscould play a cult role in the future series Harry Potter.

Harry Potter : Cillian Murphy as You-Know-Who?

Thus, rumors from the corridors claim that Cillian Murphy would have been approached to play Lord Voldemort in the series Harry Potter started by HBO Max. Obviously, at the moment, and at the time of writing these lines, this rumor should be taken with a grain of salt. Nothing of the sort has been confirmed by the streaming platform of the American channel HBO. Or by Cillian Murphy himself. At the same time, the Irish actor is not at all a fan of social networks and never communicates about his projects or roles outside of interviews. In a few clicks, we discover that this rumor comes from an account X (formerly Twitter) Turkish with nearly 1 million subscribers who shares content related to cinema and series. And then that’s all.

This Town: what is this Peaky Blinders from the 80s? Follow us

Exit Peaky Blindersplace to This Town. Creator and screenwriter Steven Knight tackles England in the 80s and more particularly the Ska movement with his new creation This Town. Forget the contraband hooch, the caps hiding razors and the clan Shelby. Make way for borsalinos, rock music and fancy costumes The Special.

In fact, the name of This Town refers to the cult title of The Specials, Ghost Town. A song already used in an equally cult film, Snatch. “This town is coming like a ghost town”, proclaims the group at the opening of the sound. Thus, the series created by Steven Knight retraces the journey of a handful of young people wanting to form a rock group in theThatcherite England. Logical, you will tell us.

This Town : the new bomb from the creator of Peaky Blinders

The Town is currently thought of as a mini-series of six episodes produced by the BBC. Steven Knight evokes a “love letter” at this time when he pitched the future show whose themes (music, bands, unemployment, violence, ghetto) are reminiscent of This is England. A film – and three spin-off series of excellent quality – which redrew the contours of British cinema engaged in the 2000s. The showrunner wanted to set the scene for This Town in 80’s Birgminham. Or the town of Peaky. The circle is complete… Well almost. The Town will be broadcast in 2024 on the BBC. We hope for a French distribution equal to that of Peaky Blinders.
