After the end of Peaky Blinders, an emblematic actor of the series was the subject of a complaint. He strongly denies what he is accused of but his appearance in a future film is pending.
It wasn’t just in Birmingham at the end of the 19th century… but also on the set of Peaky Blinders! After the finale of this popular series hailed by critics and viewers, an actor was the subject of a complaint. Paul Anderson, who plays Arthur Shelby, is indeed accused of having behaved badly on the set. The BBC, which produces Peaky Blinders, has launched an internal investigation after a report filed by a colleague. The actor, who also starred in Nick Love’s film The Firm, denies any wrongdoing and is convinced that the producers’ investigation will clear him. “Paul had a problem to deal with off set after a complaint was filed – which he completely denies”assured a source to the Sun.
Series creator Steven Knight finished Peaky Blinders last year and now plans to shoot a movie starring Paul Anderson. “Of course, this possibility is being studied in depth. It is still early for the film and the shooting of the scenes has not yet begun, so it would be possible to rewrite and modify the script and the story to explain its absence if we never got there”added this source to the tabloid. For the moment, the exact object of this complaint has not been disclosed. But the filming of a film is about to begin. “The Peaky’s are now a world, it’s a franchise, it’s a brand, and it seems to fit a lot of different forms, and it will definitely go into a movie”confided the creator.
Peaky Blinders: what is this film about?
“It seems to me that people want to be part of this world and therefore can experience it in different ways”, he added. And Cillian Murphy, who plays Peky Blinders main character Thomas Shelby, said: “I still haven’t read it but that’s the plan, the plan is to make a movie and continue the story but in the movie world rather than TV. The TV part of the story is If there’s more stories to tell, I’m here, I just haven’t read it yet – but it’s apparently going to start.”. As for the story, it should change times: “It’s kind of an untold story set in World War II that the Peakys are going to be involved in.”
