Among a heap of stars rumoured to be joining the cast of the famous Peaky Blinders, which once filmed in Bolton, here are the unlikely stars with the highest odds.

As news of a film in the works has been confirmed, fans have been left wondering who will be cast alongside Cillian Murphy as he reprises his role as Tommy Shelby.

Lucky Block created the list with dark thriller Saltburn star Barry Keoghan on the list at 7/4.

James McAvoy is rumoured to be cast at 20/1, and former Superman and The Witcher star, Henry Cavill at 10/1.

Peaky Blinders filmed scenes in Bolton which saw the cast run around Le Mans Crescent.

Previously, Cillian was spotted in running down the former Bolton Magistrates Court and down the steps to the Crescent, which had been transformed into a period street scene with vintage cars parked up.

Filming in the town centre, people in Bolton tried their very best to catch a glimpse of the star, with some even standing on bins to make him out past the black sheets.

There is speculation whether the cast who are already confirmed to film in Birmingham, could return to Bolton again.

Jude Law is also named on the list as 9/2 and perhaps the strangest considerations are A$AP Rocky at 25/1 and Snoop Dogg at 20/1, who asked to be cast according to the show's creator.
