News in Brief
13 May 1999 :
Ewan McGregor is due here shortly to play James Joyce in Pat Murphy's film project, Nora, which features Susan Lynch as Nora Barnacle and is set to start shooting on May 23rd.

Now there are unconfirmed reports that McGregor will team up again with his Phantom Menace co-star, Liam Neeson in a remake of Carol Reed's 1949 classic, The Third Man, with McGregor in Joseph Cotten's role as Holly Martins and Neeson taking over from Orson Welles as Harry Lime.

The new version, to be directed by action movie specialist John McTiernan, relocates the story from Vienna to Northern Ireland and the film is likely to be shot in Dublin.

In other news the Isle of Man is double for Ireland again with Icelandic production company Pegasus Pictures confirming plans to shoot the family drama 'Comfort Of The Storm' on the Island. The film which is set in Ireland - will be directed by US-based Irish director Peter Rodger, who also wrote the script. Snorri Thorrisson is to produce the film.

Meanwhile there is a deafening silence emanating for the Sile deValera's film industry 'Think Tank' with no news of the long awaited report which will preclude future decisions on tax incentives for film production in Ireland.
