This is one for the fans,” he said, as per Entertainment Tonight’s report.

    Tom Harper, the director of the show, also opened up about his experience from over a decade ago. “When I first directed Peaky Blinders over 10 years ago, we didn’t know what the series would become, but we did know that there was something in the alchemy of the cast and the writing that felt explosive. Peaky has always been a story about family — and so it’s incredibly exciting to be reuniting with Steve and Cillian to bring the movie to audiences across the world on Netflix,” he said.
