Colm Meaney and Aidan Gillen join Jim Sheridan’s Re-creation

Colm Meaney and Aidan Gillen will join Vicky Krieps in the cast of six-time Oscar nominee and IFTA Lifetime Achievement Award winner Jim Sheridan‘s upcoming true crime drama Re-creation.

Two-time IFTA winner Colm Meaney (In The Land of Saints and Sinners) and three-time IFTA winner Aidan Gillen (Kin) will join Vicky Krieps (Phantom Thread) in Re-creation, co-directed by Jim Sheridan and David Merriman.

Re-creation is centred around the murder of French film and TV producer Sophie Toscan du Plantier in 1996. The murder took place in West Cork, when she travelled alone to her holiday home in Schull. Twenty-eight years later the case remains unsolved. Sheridan has previously covered the same subject matter in his documentary series Murder at the Cottage.

The film blends documentary and drama elements, with the documentary sections of the production shooting in Ireland, France and the US, and the drama sections of the film shooting on a sound stage in Luxembourg. The production is supported by Screen Ireland, Film Fund Luxembourg, and Eurimages.

“I am delighted to have two icons of Irish cinema join the cast,” said Sheridan on the casting of Meaney and Gillen.

“Colm and Aidan both have starred in some of my favourite films and shows,” added co-writer and co-director David Merriman. “As artists, they both elevate any project, and we are so grateful to have them onboard.”

Tina O’Reilly (That They May Face The Rising Sun) is producing for Hell’s Kitchen, and Fabrizio Maltese (The Invitation) will produce for Luxembourg’s Joli Rideau Media. Sheridan is executive producing.

Latido Films is handling international sales and shopping the film to interested distributors at this year’s Marché du Film.

Re-creation is expected to receive a theatrical release later this year.
