Steven Knight, the mastermind behind Peaky Blinders, confirmed Murphy's return in an interview. "He definitely is returning for it. We're shooting it in September just down the road in Digbeth," Knight revealed, sparking excitement among fans eagerly awaiting the film's release.

Originally premiering on BBC Two and later gaining immense popularity on Netflix, Peaky Blinders concluded its series run in April 2022. However, Knight had always hinted at continuing the story through a movie, much to the delight of loyal fans.

While preparations for Peaky Blinders are underway, Murphy himself is enjoying the glow of his recent Oscar win. Earlier this month, he clinched his first Academy Award for his role as J. Robert Oppenheimer in Christopher Nolan's Oppenheimer, adding to his impressive list of accolades, which includes a Golden Globe and a BAFTA.

At the Academy Awards ceremony, Murphy emerged victorious among esteemed nominees Bradley Cooper, Colman Domingo, Paul Giamatti, and Jeffrey Wright. His win also marks a significant moment for Irish talent, as he becomes the third Irish actor to receive the prestigious Best Actor Oscar, following the footsteps of legends Daniel Day-Lewis and Barry Fitzgerald.

With Murphy's return and his recent Oscar triumph, anticipation for the Peaky Blinders movie is at an all-time high. As filming kicks off later this year, fans eagerly await to see Tommy Shelby's charismatic presence grace the streets of Birmingham once again.
