Cast members added to FilmOffaly short 'Kubrick by Candlelight'

Darragh O'Toole and Amy Hughes

FilmOffaly/ Filmbase’s 2016 Bursary Award winning script 'Kubrick by Candlelight' by David O’Reilly has just added two additional cast members to the production.

Joining Tullamore native Darragh O’Toole (Red Rock) and Amy Hughes (BBC’s Dads Army) are Phelim Drew and Al Foran. Drew is the son of famous musician Ronnie Drew, his debut acting role was in My Left Foot and he has also appeared in Angela’s Ashes. Al Foran is an upcoming impressionist whose imitations of the likes of Conor McGregor have gone viral online.

Described as a light hearted romantic comedy, the film is set behind the scenes during the production of Stanley Kubrick’s Barry Lyndon in Ireland in the mid 70s. David and the crew are shooting around Tullamore this December and have just launched a kickstarter page to help raise additional funds.

“We have big plans for this film and hope to get it out to film festivals around the world once we have our premiere in Tullamore. Ultimately we hope to expand this into a feature film script and come back and shoot that in Offaly as well!”
