British comedian Ross Noble will attend the Irish premiere of Fantastic Films’ co-production ‘Stitches’ in Dublin this weekend.
Noble will introduce the Irish-shot film at Movie Fest in Cineworld this Saturday.
The comedy-horror sees Noble play kids party clown Richard ‘Stitches’ Grindle, who comes back from the dead to wreak havoc on the kids responsible for his death.
‘Dead Meat’ director Conor McMahon wrote the script with David O’Brien, with McMahon also directing. John McDonnell and Brendan McCarthy of Fantastic Films produced with Ruth Treacy and Julianne Forde. Tailored Films co-produced in partnership with Chicago-based production and distribution company MPI media group.
Noble, a stand-up comedian, regularly appears on TV panel shows such as ‘QI’ and ‘Have I Got News For You’. The role of Stitches Grindle is his feature film debut.
Director McMahon is also scheduled to attend the premiere on Saturday night, along with a number of cast members.
‘Stitches’ is released in cinemas nationwide from October 26 after the UK’s Kaleidoscope Entertainment and Signature Entertainment picked it up for distribution last June. Movie Fest runs from September 8-9.
