Actor Jack O'Connell
Shooting began yesterday in Yorkshire on the Northern Ireland-set thriller, ‘71’.

The film is written by playwright Gregory Burke and is directed by BAFTA nominated television director, Yann Demange. Included in the cast are many well-known Irish actors: Richard Dormer, who played the lead role in recently released ‘Good Vibrations’ and is currently starring in HBO’s ‘Game of Thrones’, David Wilmot (Shadow Dancer), Martin McCann, (Jump), and Love/Hate’s Charlie Murphy, who is also currently starring in the BBC One drama ‘The Village’.

They are joined by Jack O’Connell (Skins, 300: Rise of an Empire), Paul Anderson (Sherlock Holmes), Sean Harris (Harry Brown), and Sam Reid (Serena). The film follows a young British soldier who is accidentally abandoned by his unit following a riot on the streets of Belfast in 1971. The disorientated soldier is then forced to spend the night in a hostile environment and must survive through any means possible.

‘71’ marks the directorial film debut of Yann Demange and is produced by Angus Lamont (Donkey Punch) for Crab Apple Films and Robin Gutch (Hunger) for Warp Films. The film is funded by the BFI Film Fund, Film4, Screen Yorkshire, and Creative Scotland. Shooting will continue in Yorkshire for 8 weeks.

Tom Collins: “For me it's all about the work, which is about creating a reflection of a modern Irish cultural identity that can travel beyond borders, history and these shores.”
Over €4.6m allocated by Creative Europe to Irish screen industry in 2021
