Итак тут Джонатан УРА! будет точно сниматься! УЖе скоро он в компании Киллиана Мерфи , Колина Фаррелла и Габриела Бирна приступит к съемкам в этой комедии мистера Брендана Глисона!
This month Irish actor Brendan Gleeson is bringing Ireland’s leading men together to make the film version of Flann O'Brien’s masterpiece At Swim-Two-Birds. The dream cast will include Gabriel Byrne, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Cillian Murphy and Colin Farrell.
All four have worked with Gleeson before but have never appeared in a film together. Gleeson himself will make his directorial debut with the film, a coming-of-age tale about a lazy, frequently drunk 19-year-old Irish college student who lives with his killjoy uncle in Dublin.
The young man’s writing a second rate novel he’s too lazy to finish and things get sticky when the characters he’s created come to life and start to rebel against him.
Gleeson knows that each of these world famous Irish actors have genuine comic gifts (and Gleeson’s no shrinking violet himself) so expect something completely out of the ordinary. The film is currently in production in Ireland. http://www.irishcentral.com/story/ent/manhattan_diary/irish-superstars-together-for-the-first-time-83650402.html

A number of exciting film projects are currently nudging over the horizon. In Peter Weir’s The Way Back , he stars as one member of a group of soldiers who escape from a Russian gulag. He appears opposite Keira Knightley in a thriller entitled London Boulevard . And then there is Brendan Gleeson’s indecently exciting adaption of At Swim Two Birds . There is talk of Gabriel Byrne, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Cillian Murphy and Gleeson himself all co-starring. Phew!
“You’d be terrified to say it will definitely happen,” he says. “It’s very hard for films that don’t have special effects and have a literary core. Few films have more of a literary core than this. We tried to get it made in March, but the money wasn’t there. So, we’re hoping to get it together in the summer.” http://www.irishtimes.com/newspaper/theticket/2010/0226/1224265176297.html

Brendan Gleeson's adaptation of the classic Irish novel "At Swim-Two-Birds" by Brian O'Nolan is looking to being shooting this summer after faltering in its first attempt of production.
The project will hopefully boast an all-star, all-Irish cast including the likes of Colin Farrell, Gabriel Byrne, Jonathan Rhys-Meyers, Cillian Murphy and Gleeson himself but, in what is indicative of the state of things, still struggled to find financing in time for a planned March shoot (and note, all these actors are all "in talks" at the moment).
“You’d be terrified to say it will definitely happen,” Farrell recently told the Irish Times. “It’s very hard for films that don’t have special effects and have a literary core. Few films have more of a literary core than this. We tried to get it made in March, but the money wasn’t there. So, we’re hoping to get it together in the summer.”
"At Swim-Two-Birds" centers on the idea of fictional characters rebelling against their creator and follows a university student as he writes a novel behind closed doors that seemingly intertwines with characters in his own life. A closer look at the novel's plot reveals very complex, meta-fictional tale that would seemingly be impossible to summarize, but it has been described as "a collision between Ireland's literary, heroic past and its grimy, mundane present."
If all goes according to plan, the film will be Gleeson's directorial debut and will see him reunite with Farrell for the first time since their award-winning roles in Martin McDonaugh's "In Bruges." Add to that the eclectic bunch of Murphy, Rhys-Meyers and Byrne and the fact the novel is Irish masterpiece that featured on Time Magazine's Top 100 Novels Of All Time... someone please make this happen. http://theplaylist.blogspot.com/2010/03/brendan-gleesons-at-swim-two-birds.html

BRENDAN Gleeson's eldest son Domhnall is following in his father's footsteps yet again.
The Harry Potter actor will be starring alongside his award-winning dad in his latest flick At Swim-Two-Birds.
And while he is no stranger to joining his father on the big screen, this time he will be accompanied by a team made up of Irish acting royalty.
In a true indication that he has hit the big time, Domhnall has been cast alongside Gabriel Byrne, Colin Farrell, Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Cillian Murphy.
The film is still described as being in pre-production and the big screen adaptation is the brainchild of none other than Brendan himself.
Flame-haired Domhnall is no stranger to accolades and even earned a Tony award nomination in 2006 for his role in The Lieutenant of Inishmore.
Most recently he displayed his comedic chops alongside Amy Huberman in the RTE sketch show Your Bad Self.
But since the programme failed to set the world alight, he has been focusing his efforts on his family's foray - that of the film world.
The up and coming actor already has an impressive resume under his belt in spite of being relatively new to the industry - making his screen debut six years ago.
With hits such as Perrier's Bounty and the blockbuster series Harry Potter series under his belt, he is becoming a force to be reckoned with in Hollywood.
And his involvement in At Swim-Two-Birds, which tells the compelling story of a writer whose own life begins to fuse with that of his characters is set to send his career skyrocketing.
As his star continues to rise, he has also dipped into behind-the-scenes work -- successfully penning and directing short film Noreen starring his famous father and brother Briain.
"Noreen was a lot of pressure, especially trying to fit in into the schedule we had. We worked around my dad's schedule but in the end I was the one who had to leave the set early on the fourth day to fly out for Harry Potter.
"It was absolute madness - it ended up that though we were due to shoot for four full days it was snowing when we got down and we were shooting out on the roads so we were faced with that and on top of that on the last day I had to take the half day." http://www.herald.ie/entertainment/around-town/gleeson-teams-up-with-son-for-movie-2255241.html<\/u><\/a>
