According to Otto Bathurst, fans will soon see their favorite "Peaky Blinders" characters on the big screen.

The award-winning British television and film director made the, albeit rather ambiguous, announcement to Yahoo Movies.

“I think it’s actually being written. I think Steve, Steve Knight the writer, I think they’re planning something, yeah," he said.

Said writer, Steve Knight, also said last year that a movie was "probably going to happen".

Bathurst (47) declined to say whether he is involved in the venture - after all he only directed three episodes during Season One and his new film "Robin Hood" has also just hit theaters.

Cork native Cillian Murphy, who plays Tommy Shelby, was vague when asked about the prospect of a movie.

The actor who plays the infamous Peaky Blinder gang leader said, "I’m sort of ambivalent about it…It’s kind of a sexy idea, but I’ll reserve judgment until the idea is presented to me.”

"I think Steve has some ideas. You'd have to be careful, but I'd be curious to do it," Murphy added.
