31 Oct 2006 :
Shooting has wrapped on the bilingual Irish feature film ‘Kings’ from Newgrange Pictures. Directed and written by Tom Collins, the feature is an adaptation of Jimmy Murphy’s critically acclaimed stageplay ‘The Kings of The Hilburn High Road’.

Shooting for six weeks, ‘Kings’ has taken in locations around Belfast, Dublin and London. The film etches the life of six young men who emigrate to England in the late 70s to make their fortune and return to Ireland rich and successful.

The cast features leading Irish actor Colm Meaney (Intermission, Layer Cake, The Snapper) alongside Donal O’Kelly (Spin the Bottle), Brendan Conroy (A Man of No Importance), Donncha Crowley, Barry Barnes (Veronica Guerin) and Seán Ó Tarpaigh.

The film is an Irish/UK co-production with Jackie Larkin producing through Dublin based Newgrange Pictures and Michael Casey (Middletown, Freeze Frame) through Belfast based Green Park Films.

‘Kings’ has received substantial funding from the Irish Film Board, the Broadcasting Commission of Ireland, TG4, the NIFTC and the Irish Language Broadcast Fund.

The director of Photography is P.J. Dillon, Production Designer David Craig, Costume Designer Maggie Donnelly and hair/makeup supervisor Pamela Smyth.
