The writer’s recent work includes the IFTA nominated crime comedy, ‘Perrier’s Bounty’. Cillian Murphy has a busy year ahead of him as he is also to join Robert Sheehan in France this summer to shoot ‘Wayfaring Strangers’. The Golden Globe nominated and IFTA winning ‘Breakfast on Pluto’ actor has enjoyed great international success recently with roles in Christopher Nolan’s ‘Inception’ and ‘The Dark Knight’ and Carl Tibbetts ‘Retreat’ which he recently shoot with Thandie Newton (Crash).
