Still, 'Don't Let Go'
The science fiction title directed by David Gleeson (Tolkien) has just finished up production in the West of Ireland, with a cast including Melissa George (Gray’s Anatomy), Stephen Dorff (Blade).

He directs a script he co-wrote with the BAFTA-winning Ronan Blaney. Nathalie Lichtenhaeler of Wide Eye Films produces, with other crew including DoP James Mather, production designer Tracey O’Hanlon and editor Isobel Stephenson.

Production facilities were provided by Danú Media and post-production will take place at EGG post Production in Dublin.

The cast also includes Simon Delaney (The Good Wife), Aoibhinn McGinnity (Love/Hate) and Charlotte Bradley (Veronica Guerin).

Devastated by his daughter's death in a terrible accident, Ben (played by Dorff) becomes convinced that he can bring her back through a recurring dream. But is it just a dream? Or is Ben losing his mind?

Nathalie Lichtenhaeler, Producer, Wide Eye Films:
“It has been a wonderful experience shooting this film in Spiddal, Co Galway. We were honoured to work with this calibre of cast and an extraordinary crew who enabled us to create something very special.”

‘Don’t Let Go’ marks Gleeson’s return to directing duties following Cowboys And Angels (2003) and The Front Line (2006).

His upcoming project ‘Tolkien’ from Fox Searchlight and Chernin Entertainment has just been announced and will begin shooting in September in London, starring Nicholas Hoult playing the role of ‘Lord of the Rings’ writer, JRR Tolkien.
