‘Get Up and Go’ with Peter Coonan and Killian Scott to Start Filming this June
01 May 2013 : By Kevin Cronin
Peter Coonan and Killian Scott to star in 'Get Up and Go'.
Following the end of filming of season 4 of Love/Hate next month, two of its biggest stars Peter Coonan and Killian Scott will reunite on the big screen for Fastnet Films’ ‘Get up and Go’.

Produced by Fastnet’s Juliette Bonass in co-production with Wales’ Fragrant Films, the comedy drama is currently in pre-production and will shoot in Dublin city centre for three and a half weeks this June and July.

The film follows a close knit group of twenty-something friends as they are forced to confront the reality of lives and friendships which have gone unchallenged and unchanged since their teenage years.

The film is written and will be directed by Brendan Grant (‘Tonight is Cancelled’) and will also star Gemma Leah Deveraux (‘Stitches’) and Sara Lloyd Gregory (BBC’s ‘Hinterland’).

The comedy drama will also feature the film debut of acclaimed theatre actor Conor Scott (‘The Shape of Things’, The Horse Trading Diaries’) in a supporting role.

Peter Coonan and Killian Scott’s most recent cinematic efforts can still be seen in Irish cinemas - in Mark O’Connor’s ‘King of The Travellers’ and ‘Good Vibrations’ respectively.

Mr Coonan will next appear as Barney Doyle in BBC’s ‘Quirke’ this autumn, alongside Gabriel Byrne, with Mr Scott’s first starring vehicle ‘Black Ice’ - produced by Johnny Gogan, Trevor Curran and Nicky Gogan – expected later this year.

‘Get Up and Go’ received funding from the Irish Film Board, Film Agency Wales, private equity, Wildcard Distribution and Section 481.
