Parallel's Alan Moloney Is A Very Busy Man
27 Sep 2002 :
Alan Moloney is a very busy man – rescuing Colm Meaney from a hundred local kids seeking autographs is just another task to be accomplished during the production of ‘Intermission’, currently filming in Dublin.

Moloney’s production company, Parallel, first became involved with Company of Wolves, the co-production company run by Steve Woolley and Neil Jordan, during the production of the Beckett series – Jordan directed ‘Not I’, and the director of ‘Intermission’ John Crowley directed ‘Come and Go’. Jordan and Woolley had optioned Mark O’Rowe’s script of ‘Intermission’ at that time, and asked Alan Maloney to get involved.

The film was originally scheduled to start early in 2001 and then early 2002, but the nature of the script, and the scale of the cast meant that the project was a little daunting for investors, as well as taking time to get the cast right and available at the same time. Certainly everyone involved in the project all loved the script, and understood the difficulties in getting the project off the ground – Colin Farrell, Colm Meaney, Kelly McDonald and Cillian Murphy are all highly devoted to the project.

The budget of E4million has been provided through S481 and Sale and Leaseback through the Film Council in UK, the Irish Film Board, and the distribution deal with Buena Vista (in Ireland and UK) and IFC in US. Matheson Ormsby Prentice are the legal film involved, and Anglo Irish Bank are raising money through S481 for the production.

Facilities being used in Ireland are Panavision, Cine Electric, Team FX (for the car chasing scenes) and Screen Scene for rushes etc duing production. The film is being shot on Super 16. Posting will happen in London.

The film will be finished in April 2003, and will screen in Cannes, with a probable September release.
