EXCLUSIVE: David Wilmot & James Nesbitt Lead All-Star Cast To ‘Gold’
31 Jan 2013 : By Eva Hall
'Gold' features an all-star Irish cast
David Wilmot, James Nesbitt, Kerry Condon and Maisie Williams have all begun filming Irish feature film ‘Gold’ in Dublin, IFTN can exclusively reveal.

The comedy, developed by Dublin-based production company Subotica, features an all-star cast, with ‘Shadow Dancer’ actor Wilmot starring as wandering loner Ray, who tries to track down his estranged ex-partner and teenage daughter so his dying father can see her one last time.

Comedy ensues when Ray, disguised in an outfit he sought from a charity clothing bank, realises his daughter, played by ‘Game of Thrones’ actress Maisie Williams, and her mother, played by ‘This Must Be The Place’ actress Kerry Condon, have built a new life with his former PE teacher, played by ‘The Hobbit’ actor James Nesbitt.

Eileen Walsh (Pure Mule) and Steven Mackintosh (Small Engine Repair) also have supporting roles in the film, which was written and is currently being directed by IFTA winner Niall Heery (Small Engine Repair).

Tristan Orpen Lynch and Aoife O’Sullivan are producing for Subotica, with additional Irish crew including IFTA-nominated DoP Tim Fleming (Citadel); IFTA-nominated costume designer Leonie Prendergast (Kisses, What Richard Did) and IFTA-winning production designer Padraig O’Neill (Spin the Bottle, King of the Travellers).

Also on set are line producer Breda Walsh (What Richard Did); AD Owen Magee (Life of Crime); BAFTA-winning makeup artist Morna Ferguson (My Boy Jack); location manager Peter Conway, and sound mixer Karl Merren.

Filming has been ongoing in various locations around Dublin since yesterday (January 30), and is scheduled to wrap on March 5, when BAFTA-winning editor Tony Cranstoun (The Royle Family, Death of a Superhero) will begin cutting the film in post-production.

‘Gold’ is scheduled for completion in September 2013, and will be released theatrically in 2014.
