Robert Sheehan Experiences ‘Acts of God’
14 Apr 2010 :
Robert Sheehan
Irish actor and IFTA nominee Robert Sheehan (Cherrybomb) is to star in a new feature from B Good Picture Company called ‘Acts of God’. Robert will star alongside Ed Hogg (Bunny and the Bull) and Celia Imrie (Nanny McPhee) in the black comedy that is to start shooting this autumn.

The film’s cast also includes Rosalind Knight (About a Boy) and ‘One Foot in the Grave’ actress Janine Duvitski. ‘Acts of God’ director, Joe A. Stephenson (The Alchemist Suitcase) tells IFTN the film is almost completely financed and is expected to start filming in October of this year in and around London. “We’re all very excited to get started on the film,” he tells us, and is delighted to have the Irish actor involved in the project. “He’s the slightly odd guardian angel character; it’s great to have him on board.”

‘Acts of God’ sees risk assessment manager Timothy McCain desperately trying to get to his fiancées bedside in Paris. Just when his journey takes a turn for the worse a young man named Dorian, played by Robert Sheehan, arrives claiming to be his guardian angel. What becomes apparent is that though Dorian may well be McCain’s guardian angel he isn’t a very good one. The film looks to show audiences that Heaven isn’t what we think and neither are guardian angels.

The road trip comedy is written by Ryan Sampson (actor, Dr. Who) and Joe who also produces alongside Stephen Cookson (The Mumbo Jumbo) and Joanna Gueritz (Cold Comfort Farm).
