Roger Allam Leads Belfast-Set Political Thriller ‘The Truth Commissioner’

LONDON — Political thriller “The Truth Commissioner” has started to shoot in Belfast and Dublin. Pic stars Roger Allam, whose credits include “The Queen,” “Tamara Drewe” and “The Book Thief.”

The story, which is based on David Park’s novel, starts as the peace treaty is signed in Northern Ireland. The U.K. prime minister sets up a body modeled on South Africa’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission, which is headed by career diplomat Henry Stanfield (Allam). Stanfield soon uncovers some inconvenient truths about those now running the country, which they are not willing to let him reveal.

The cast also includes Sean McGinley (“Michael Collins,” “Braveheart,” “The Wind That Shakes the Barley”), Tom Goodman Hill (“The Imitation Game,” “Mr Selfridge”), Conleth Hill (“Intermission,” “Salmon Fishing in Yemen,” “Game of Thrones”) and Ian McElhinney (“Game of Thrones”). Declan Recks directs.

Pic is produced by BT9 Films for Big Fish Films and Samson Films. Producers are David Collins (“Once,” Run & Jump,” “The Sea”), Eoin O’Callaghan (“Five Minutes of Heaven,” “Before You Go”) and Kevin Jackson (“Falling for a Dancer,” “Amongst Women,” “Behold the Lamb”). It is produced in association with Northern Ireland Screen, BBC Northern Ireland, the Irish Film Board and the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland.
