Steven Knight attended the premier of the third series in Birmingham with the show's stars Cillian Murphy and Packy Lee in 2016
He revealed talks over a dance version of the show, saying: "I had a meeting with Ballet Rambert who want to do Peaky Blinders - The Ballet. I'm saying 'why not?'"Knight said he was keen to use the show's success to promote Birmingham and wants more filming to take place in the city.Previous episodes have been filmed elsewhere, with the Black Country Living Museum one of the only locations close to Birmingham."I'm trying to get series five shot here and trying to get as many Birmingham actors as I can in," he said."It's always bothered me that Birmingham didn't have that profile. It's a big city and it wasn't shouting about it. "I'm sort of an evangelist for the city, so that was part of wanting to do it."He also hopes to create a massive film studio and production facility near the National Exhibition Centre."It's no secret that the plan is to build a six-sound stage studio in Birmingham, not because I want people to love Birmingham; it's a business," Knight explained.He is in discussions with Birmingham City Council, the Royal Shakespeare Company, the BBC and West Midlands Mayor Andy Street and a formal announcement on the project is expected in the autumn of this year.
