In an interview with the Birmingham Mail, he explained, “There is so much stuff happening as we are going into the 30’s.

“The depression and the rise of fascism form part of the storyline. It is setting those things up.”

Could there be a Peaky Blinders movie?

Series creator and writer Steven Knight and his executive producer Caryn Mandabach admitted there have been talks surrounding the possibility of a film spin-off.

But when questioned, Murphy told Deadline he was hesitant about committing.

He said: “I’m sort of ambivalent about it. I’m sort of like, ‘Eh, yeah, I don’t know, I’m not sure’.

“I love the idea sort of theoretically, but it has to come at the right time, you know? You can’t alienate the beautiful democratic thing of television where everyone just watches it,” he added.

“Cinema is trickier because you gotta pay your $10, you gotta leave the kids at home.

“You’ve got to do all of that, so it’s different and also you have to compress the story into probably just an event rather than the whole arc that we’ve normally been doing.

 “It’s kind of a sexy idea, but I’ll reserve judgement until the idea is presented to me.”
