HE'S currently starring in the latest Enda Walsh play Ballyturk, but actor Cillian Murphy (inset) could soon be making a return to the silver screen.

With blockbuster hits including Batman: The Dark Knight Rises and Transcendence under his belt, the Diary can reveal that Cork native Cillian has reportedly taken on another Hollywood part.

This time around the 38-year-old dad-of-two is signing up for a role in the currently untitled Tron: Legacy sequel movie.

American actress Olivia Wilde is also rumoured to be joining the cast.

It's a busy time for Cillian on stage and on screen, as he's also awaiting the release of the second series of his BBC Two period crime drama Peaky Blinders, with Tom Hardy and Helen McCrory.

The new trailer for the programme is to premiere at a football match in the UK this weekend - showing at half time during Birmingham City's home game against Leeds United.

Peaky Blinders is made and set in Birmingham with production bosses saying it's a way of saying thank you to the City fans, who have been dressing up in costumes similar to those in the show for away matches.
