'Pavee Lackeen' to bow at Galway Film Fleadh in July

There’s buzz around “Pavee Lackeen,” a microbudget docu-drama about gypsies that marks the directorial debut of sometime Conde Nast photographer Perry Ogden.

It will get its world premiere at the Galway Film Fleadh (i.e., festival) in July, alongside Stephen Bradley’s Dublin zombie comedy “Boy Eats Girl” and Anthony Byrne’s culinary whimsy “Short Order.”

Other upcoming movies include Billy O’Brien’s rural horror movie “Isolation”; an adaptation of Maeve Binchy’s bestseller “Tara Road” by Scottish director Gillies Mackinnon; and Tom Collins’ romantic comedy “Dead Long Enough.” All are in post.

Further down the line, Lenny Abrahamson is developing a modern version of Ivan Turgenev’s novella “First Love,” and is working with “Adam and Paul” writer-star Mark O’Halloran on “The Garage,” which he describes as “an unusual take on a small Irish town.”

“Intermission” scribe Mark O’Rowe is writing another Dublin drama, “Perrier’s Bounty,” for Maloney, who is also working with U2’s Bono to develop “A Version of Las Vegas” with writer Barry Devlin. It’s a comedy-drama about an Irish musician who moved to Vegas with his showband in the 1960s, and is tracked down in the present day by the son he abandoned in Ireland.

Gleeson and Lichtenthaeler are prepping “The Front Line,” about an African security guard in Dublin, who gets entangled with, and then turns the table on, a gang of bank robbers. It will star Ciaran Hinds and Eriq Ebouaney. They are also planning to remake the 1970s Italian meller “The Last Snows of Spring,” and working with Flynn and O’Sullivan to develop “Flashpoint,” a drama about the British army in Iraq.

MacConghail is working with Irish writer John Banville to adapt his Booker-shortlisted novel “The Book of Evidence.”

Guiney and Lowe, who produced “Boy Eats Girl” and “Isolation,” are developing “The Horde,” a family thriller about an American businessman who mines for gold under an ancient Irish monument, and disturbs a tribe of angry spirits.

But, the producers insist, these are homicidal fairies — they are emphatically not leprechauns.
