In all the Peaky Blinders hype ahead of season 3 starting next week, it’s not really a surprise that a “there’s gonna be a movie” rumour has started doing the rounds.
But this time instead of some “source” being the one to grass, it’s actually executive producer Caryn Mandabach who’s been spilling the beans. She told Digital Spy:
“We did have a conversation about potentially doing a movie…There are many people in America that lovePeaky Blindersand plenty of movie stars that want to be in the movie.”
And apparently one of the people queuing up to star in the hypothetical Peaky Blinders movie is Julia Roberts?! Imagine if they went all Ghostbusters and she took on the role of Tommy Shelby…
Mandabach might be getting our hopes up though as she added,“We heard Julia Robertswants to do it – butthis is hearsay… Idon’t really know for sure.” Shame.
Creator Stephen Knight also added fuel to the fire saying,“I think it’d be greatto have aseries, thena film, a series, a film… why not?” But they both expressed that nothing can be sure until they get series 4 confirmed, so poor old Julia will just have to wait till then.
Here’s everything you need to know about the new series ahead of next Thursday, and you can check out a trailer here:
