New Drug-Fuelled Feature Film Being Shot In Dublin

Principal photography has commenced on the darkly comedic spoken word odyssey 'Dublin Oldschool', adapted from the highly successful stage play that won critical acclaim both at home and abroad.

The shoot started this week and will last for at least a month on location, in Dublin City and Wicklow.

The story is set during a drug-fuelled lost weekend in Dublin, with the main character being played the by the writer himself Emmet Kirwan, a wannabe DJ who reconnects with his estranged homeless brother and recovering addict, played by Ian Lloyd Anderson, who has appeared in the likes of 'Game of Thrones' and 'Love/Hate'.

The film is being directed by Dave Tynan ('Rockmount'& 'Heartbreak') with a script co-written with Emmet Kirwan.

Emmet Kirwan and Ian Lloyd Anderson, who reprise their award-winning stage roles, are joined by a superbly talented ensemble including Sarah Greene ('Penny Dreadfu'l/'Ransom'), Seána Kerslake ('A Date for Mad Mary'/'Can’t Cope, Won’t Cope'), Mark O’Halloran ('Adam & Paul') and Stephen Jones ('Red Rock'/'Love Hate').

'Dublin Oldschool' is supported by Bord Scannán na hÉireann/Irish Film Board, Windmill Lane Pictures, Filmbase along with support from Revenue through the Irish Section 481 Tax Credit.
