After the recent release of Oppenheimer, Cillian Murphy stands out as one of the prominent Hollywood stars captivating the big screen.

In Christopher Nolan’s three-hour-long biopic about American scientist J. Robert Oppenheimer, often referred to as the ‘father of the atomic bomb,’ 47-year-old Cillian Murphy takes on the titular role.

Furthermore, this collaboration is not the first time he has worked with the filmmaker. Cillian Murphy has previously appeared in five of Christopher Nolan’s other films, including The Dark Knight, Inception, and Dunkirk.

However, despite his involvement in various projects, Cillian Murphy remains widely recognized for his outstanding performance in the acclaimed BBC series, Peaky Blinders.

Since its debut in 2013, the Irish actor has portrayed the lead character Tommy Shelby, the formidable crime boss of the Birmingham gang.

In 2022, the series concluded, leaving fans eager for more, as they hoped it wouldn’t mark the definitive end of Peaky Blinders.

Following extensive discussions about a spin-off film and some recent remarks from Murphy, there is a possibility that we are now closer to witnessing the return of the Peaky Blinders family.

During the Oppenheimer press tour, host Josh Horowitz asked the star in an episode of HAPPY SAD CONFUSED: “Does it feel like Peaky is now in the rearview mirror? Have you distanced yourself from Tommy and that experience, or is it still too early to tell?”

Murphy revealed that in the past, he believed it would take several years to gain a proper perspective on his role in Peaky Blinders. He shared, “Playing that character for 10 years was a significant part of my life. The show’s success was undoubtedly due to the exceptional writing.

Cillian Murphy Shares Encouraging Update for Peaky Blinders Fans Regarding a Potential Movie

In a recent interview, Cillian Murphy provided a positive update for Peaky Blinders fans, expressing his openness to the idea of a movie continuation. The actor emphasized his satisfaction with the TV series’ conclusion and the show’s continued appeal to new viewers through streaming platforms.

Murphy stated, “If there’s a movie there, and if there’s more story to tell, I’ll definitely have the conversation. I think we ended really, really well in the TV version of it. And I’m very proud that the show never plateaued in my opinion. I think each series was richer than the last, so I’m very proud that we achieved that.”

He went on to highlight his pride in Peaky Blinders’ enduring popularity and its ability to attract new fans, thanks to the accessibility of streaming services like BBC iPlayer and Netflix.

Previously, the actor had expressed his enthusiasm about the possibility of a movie continuation, stating, “I’d love to do it if there’s more story there. But it has to be right. Steve Knight wrote 36 hours of television, and we left on such a high. I’m really proud of that last series. So, it would have to feel legitimate and justified to do more.”

With Cillian Murphy’s positive outlook and love for the series, fans remain hopeful for further developments in the Peaky Blinders universe.
