Irish-American comedy ‘The Yank’ to be released on DVD next month

Bulldog Film Distribution have announced that Irish-American romantic comedy ‘The Yank’, will be released on DVD on March 6th 2015 in Ireland.

The film is the directorial debut of Irish-American helmer Sean Lackey and stars Colm Meaney, Fred Willard, Kevin P Farley and Martin Maloney.

‘The Yank’, a co-production between Dublin’s Zanzibar Films and US-based Wet Ears Productions and Rampage Entertainment, is a comedy which sees an Irish-American travel to Ireland to find love. The tale was inspired by a real life visit to Ireland by writer/director Sean Lackey.

Filming initially began in Cleveland, Ohio before moving to towns such as Milltown, Doolin and Quilty in County Clare with some filming taking place in County Dublin also.

Speaking about the film, director Sean Lackey said: ‘I felt compelled to write this story by my own experiences. My parents emigrated from Ireland and when we were growing up in Cleveland, ‘St. Patrick's Day’ was a feast day celebrated with mass. I also think that when one comes from such a strong cultural or religious background, families tend to push their young adults into marrying their "own kind” and I’ve tried to address this in a humorous way with this film. The film took two years to write and has been a labour of love for me to make, I’m delighted that we are now able to release this film on DVD in Ireland.’

‘The Yank’ will be released on DVD on March 6th and will be available for purchase at all good retailers nationwide.
