PEAKY Blinders’ creator may make a film of the gangster drama.
Writer Steven Knight said he expected the hit BBC show to take viewers to the start of WWII.
He told a festival in Birmingham in the show’s honour: “I’m writing series six at the moment. That’s almost done.
“Then I’m going to do series seven, then I’m looking at spin-offs, maybe a movie.
“It’s up to us. It’s up to the people involved.”
But he would avoid a prequel as “you can’t kill a character who can show up in the series”
Knight spoke at the Peaky Blinders Legitimate festival in Digbeth, where former Oasis frontman Gallagher made an appearance, being a fan of the show.
The writer is reluctant to allow him a role on the show itself.
The show creator added: “He said ‘if you do my video, I’ll do the festival’.
“In terms of appearances we’ve always had a lot of incoming interest.

“What I’m trying to not do is populate the scene with people who are known for other things, because I think it’s quite distracting.”
The current series of Peaky Blinders sees Murphy’s character in a position of political power as a local MP.
