Principal photography has commenced on Dublin Oldschool, adapted from the highly successful play which has been seen in Dublin and tour, Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2016 and a sold out season at the Dorfman National Theatre earlier this year.

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.

Emmet Kirwan (Sarah & Steve/Heartbreak) and Ian Lloyd Anderson (Game of Thrones, Love/Hate) reprise their award-winning stage roles and are joined by an 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).

Directed by Dave Tynan, with a script he co-wrote with Emmet Kirwan, the film will shoot for four weeks on location in Dublin City and Wicklow.

The producers are MDV & Warrior Films. Distributors are Element Pictures Distribution (2018) (Ireland) (theatrical)
