Now this may have been done before, but filming of 'Crossmaglen' will begin in March 2011, delayed by the unfortunate death of Pete Postlethwaite. Now I don't know, but I spent a bit of time in XMG "back along" as my mother in law would say and I'm not sure this film will be balanced.............given that the tag photo is a sniper rifle. Here's the outline info: Shooting of Crossmaglen re-schedules to March January 11, 2011 by Brónagh Murphy Filming of the Hollywood movie Crossmaglen is scheduled to begin in March, producer Arianna Eisenberg has confirmed. The recent death of actor Pete Postlethwaite is believed to have impacted on the films schedule as Postlethwaite had been cast in the role of Irish American Senator Patrick Monahan. Speaking to The Examiner, Ms Eisenberg conveyed the sorrow felt by the crew at his untimely death. The news of Petes passing was tremendously sad for us, as for everyone who revered his work and talent. We are most fortunate that hes left an indelible mark through his films. His presence onscreen was undeniable and we will be the poorer without him, she said. It has also emerged that directors are in discussions with Michael Gambon (of Harry Potter fame), who, it is believed, may take on the role left vacant by Postlethwaites passing. The production boasts a string of A-list actors and actresses including Oscar winners Ben Kingsley (Ghandi) and Brenda Fricker (My Left Foot) alongside Tony Curran (Gladiator) Clare Forlani and Ioan Gruffudd. Ms Eisenberg said the cast and crew are extremely enthusiastic to get to Ireland with the project. The movie will be shot on location in Dublin but producers have not ruled out filming some scenes in the north, perhaps even in Crossmaglen. A novel of the same name is expected to be released simultaneously with the film by the groups publishing division. Synopsis The film is an adaptation of Shamrock Boy, a novel by English author, Stuart White, which centres around a fictitious IRA member Dermot McGarvey who is forced to go on the run from his enemies and former comrades after a botched attack. I particularly like the fact that the film is called 'Crossmaglen' - a tiny shithole in South Armagh and will be filmed in Dublin - a large shithole in the Republic. Likewise I love the idea that the central idea is a 'botched' IRA attack. Must've been spoilt for choice there. First to admit I haven't read the book, but as I do have the T-Shirt, I thought others might be interested.
