Eenie Meaney: ‘Owd’ man in

NEW YORK — Colm Meaney (“The Snapper”) will star with James Cromwell (“Babe”) in Kingsboro Greenlight Pictures’ “Owd Bob,” which begins lensing this week on the Isle of Man.

Directed by Rodney Gibbons (“The Neighbor”), “Owd Bob” is the story of a young American boy who goes to live with his British grandfather after the tragic death of his parents. Pic was produced by Pieter Kroonenburg, Julie Allan and John Buchanan.

Meaney just wrapped Lodge Kerrigan’s as-yet untitled project, which also stars Vincent D’Onofrio and Katrin Cartridge (“Breaking the Waves”). Later this spring, he will begin filming his role as a gangster in Ted Demme’s “Noose,” which stars Denis Leary, who wrote the screenplay with Mike Armstrong.

Meaney will be seen in two films this summer — Fox Searchlight’s “The Van” and Buena Vista’s “Con Air,” which stars Nicholas Cage, John Malkovich and John Cusack.

Meaney’s deal was negotiated by his manager Rick Ax and his attorney Stephen Breimer.
