"Having said all of that, it's incredibly flattering to be in that conversation," he confessed, before adding: "I think it should be a woman [next]."

Before we consider who is next, current 007 actor Daniel Craig will be back behind the wheel of an Aston Martin next year for No Time to Die for one final adventure.

Peaky Blinders writer hints at film - and dashes Liam Gallagher cameo hopes The writer of Peaky Blinders is hoping a film version will be made when the TV series ends. Steven Knight, creator of the Birmingham crime saga, is to look at possible spin-offs once the series ends.

Idris Elba, James Norton and Cillian Murphy are also reportedly in the running – but we think Hardy has what it takes to do the role justice. The story was picked up by a couple of outlets before being called out by fans, but not before the Peaky Blinders star himself took to Instagram to set the record straight.

No Time to Die will be released in the UK on April 3, 2020 and in the US on April 8, 2020.

Peaky Blinders season 5 is on iPlayer now, and comes to Netflix on October 4. Obsessed With… Peaky Blinders hosted by Digital Spy's Editor, Laurence Mozafari – is out now and available to listen to on BBC Sounds.
