Martin Sheen & Stephen Rea Lead 'Stella Days'
14 Oct 2010 :
Martin Sheen & Stephen Rea
Cameras are scheduled to roll on the set of Newgrange Pictures’ new feature film ‘Stella Days’ on Sunday, November 7th. South Tipperary will play host to Golden Globe winner Martin Sheen (The West Wing, Apocalypse Now) and Oscar nominee Stephen Rea (The Crying Game, Ondine) who lead the film’s impressive cast.

Written by Antoine O’Flathartha and directed by IFTA winning Irish director Thaddeus O’Sullivan (Into the Storm, December Bride) the Newgrange Pictures production will see Martin Sheen play parish priest, Daniel Barry, whose love for the cinema leads him on a path to help set up a local cinema in the town. But Daniel comes up against opposition from doubtful local parishioners who question his faith and the Bishop who is more interested in raising funds for a new church.

‘Stella Days’ is scheduled to shoot for five weeks. The drama is being produced by Jackie Larkin (Kings) and Maggie Pope (No Tears). Budget is TBC but funds of €600,000 have been awarded by the Irish Film Board. The director of photography on board is John Christian Rosenlund (Factotum) who will shoot the project on RED and the feature's production designer is IFTA winner, Anna Rackard (Ondine). ‘Stella Days’ will be edited in a Dublin post house following its shoot.

Further details will be announced on IFTN closer to the production date.
