Welcome, welcome, and once more, welcome, to episode 256 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! A very deep look into the expansive universe of writing and directing here, as Pip chats at length to STEVEN KNIGHT, writer and creator of Peaky Blinders, Taboo and Locke (among MANY others), and his film Serenity!
Chances are that if you are a Distraction Pieces Podcast listener (god bless you), you will be fully versed on Steven’s work. Pip references his work with a great and contagious fondness and for very good reason - he makes some incredibly fine film and television! This is a perfect opportunity to hear from the man in that director seat behind the curtain on a huge amount of topics and angles including the rule-based world of film making, his work on Locke, Peaky Blinders, Taboo and all the rest in his insane body of work, his new film Serenity and how he lucked out on getting his first choice cast picks, playing with reality, how we are all the lead roles in our own realities, the BBC leaving him alone in creating, the far and wide fans of Peaky, how one gets a cast together and that old unfinished story of Florence Pugh trying to smuggle she and Pip into Peaky too! Let’s see if the inception works, shall we? Great one here folks, enjoy!
