Dublin Oldschool on route to the big screen


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

Over a drug-fuelled lost weekend in Dublin, Jason (Emmet Kirwan), a wannabe DJ reconnects with his estranged homeless brother Daniel (Ian Lloyd Anderson), a recovering addict.

Dave Tynan (Rockmount/Heartbreak) directs a script co-written with Emmet Kirwan. Michael Donnelly V of MDV and Dave Leahy of Warrior Films produce with Liam Ryan as Associate Producer. Rory Gilmartin is Executive Producer for Element Pictures who will also distribute the film through Element Pictures Distribution.

Emmet Kirwan (Sarah & Steve/Heartbreak) and Ian Lloyd Anderson (Game of Thrones, Love/Hate) reprise their award-winning stage roles and are joined by a superbly talented ensemble including Sarah Greene (Penny Dreadful/Ransom), Seána Kerslake (A Date for Mad Mary/Can’t Cope, Won’t Cope), Mark O’Halloran (Adam & Paul/History’s Future/The Virtues) and Stephen Jones (Red Rock/Love Hate).

Director Dave Tynan is surrounded by a stellar production crew with JJ Rolfe on board as Director of Photography, Production Designer Mark Kelly and SJ Ffrench O’Carroll as Costume Designer.

The shoot will last for 4 weeks, on location, in Dublin City and Wicklow.

 

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.

Dublin Oldschool joins Jason on a chemically enhanced trip through the streets of Dublin as he stumbles from one misguided adventure to another. Somewhere between the DJs, decks, drug busts and hilltop raves, he stumbles across a familiar face from the past, his brother Daniel.

Daniel is an educated homeless heroin addict living on the streets of Dublin. The brothers haven’t seen or spoken to each other in years but over a lost weekend they reconnect and reminisce over tunes, trips, their history and their city. Two brothers living on the edge but perhaps they have more in common than they think.
