O’Donnell makes an ‘Inside’ move

Irish helmer working on Caine's script

Irish director Damien O’Donnell (“East Is East,” “Heartlands”) has boarded his first project since “Edgardo Mortara” fell apart in pre-production last year.

He’s attached to “Inside I’m Dancing” for producer James Flynn of Dublin-based Octagon Films. This would be O’Donnell’s first Irish movie.

The $6 million pic is scripted by Jeffrey Caine (“The Constant Gardener”). It’s a buddy movie with a difference, about two boys with cerebral palsy.

Flynn is putting together the project to shoot later this year, with a patchwork of Irish and British public funding, and international distrib coin.
