SNIPPETS

The TV Guide - - GOSSIP -

It seems pro­duc­tion of a Peaky Blin­ders movie is fi­nally un­der­way. Otto Bathurst, a di­rec­tor from the TV se­ries, says he be­lieves a script is now be­ing writ­ten. When Cil­lian Mur­phy, the se­ries lead, was asked in 2016 about do­ing a movie, he wasn’t keen, but did say

it would have to come about at the right time. Sea­son five of Peaky Blin­ders screens in the UK next year.

The re­boot of Veron­ica Mars has added Os­car-win­ning ac­tor JK Sim­mons (above, Whiplash) to

the cast as an ex-con who served 10 years for rack­e­teer­ing and now works as a fixer for a real es­tate devel­oper. The new se­ries re­tains lead ac­tress Kristin Bell and fol­lows the in­ves­ti­ga­tion of a se­rial killer in the town of Nep­tune.
