We are welcoming 2018 with a bang here at Egg studios and kick the year off with a slate of amazing projects in post production. Wiping out our January blues is Irish dark comedy Dark lies the Island.
Set in a small Irish town and unfolding over the course of one week, a long-standing family feud comes to a head and forces the men to face the truth. Written by Kevin Barry DLTI is based on characters from his short story collection of the same name.
Directed by FitzGibbon and produced by Grand Pictures, the cast includes Peter Coonan (Penance, Love/Hate), Pat Shortt (The Flag, Twice Shy), Moe Dunford (Handsome Devil, Patrick’s Day), Charlie Murphy (Philomena, Rebellion), Tommy Tiernan (Derry Girls, Father Ted), John Quinn (Black ’47, Michael Inside) and Jana Mohieden.
Dark Lies the Island is a Grand Pictures production, supported by Bord Scannán na hÉireann/Irish Film Board, RTÉ, the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland, Quickfire (UK), Egg Studios Ltd, and Section 481.
