A source told The Sun: “Paul had an issue which he had to deal with off set after a claim was made – which he fully denies. This will of course be checked thoroughly.
“The film is still early days and filming hasn’t started yet, so it would be possible to rewrite and change the script and plot to account for its absence, if that ever happens.”
Paul was a mainstay of the show throughout its six seasons, appearing alongside his on-screen brother Tommy (Cillian Murphy) in every episode.
Paul has been thought to have a major role in the upcoming movie which is currently slated for release next year.

According to The Sun, an insider from the production company said: “We wouldn’t talk about individuals, but it’s too early to say who will star in the film at this point.”
MailOnline has reached out to representatives from Paul Anderson and the Peaky Blinders production team for further comment.
In October last year, Cillian offered fans an update on the film.
Speaking to Today FM, the actor revealed the script is “almost” finished.

He said: “I still haven’t read it [the script] But that’s the plan, the plan is to make a movie and continue the story, but in the movie world rather than on TV.
“The TV part of the story is done. If there are any more stories to tell I’ll be there, I just haven’t read it yet but it seems it’s close.
The film aims to pick up where the sixth and final season of the series left off.
Last month, the show’s creator Steven Knight suggested there could be another TV series after the film’s release.
Steven announced that he will be handing over the reins to a new team who will take care of the production of the Birmingham-based gangster series set in the 1950s.
He told the BBC: “I think after the film we’ll look at that [it]. I would sort of bring possible new stories into the 50’s, and then I would hand the baton of writing and creating to other people.
He added: “But if there’s an appetite for the world, it will go on.”
