Eoin Colfer’s ‘Poison Pen’ Goes into Production
09 Apr 2014 : Aisling Newton
Principal photography has begun on a new Irish feature film titled ‘Poison Pen’, the first screenplay by international bestselling author, Eoin Colfer.

The romantic comedy stars Lochlann O Mearain (The O’Briens / King Arthur) alongside Aoibhinn McGinnity (Love/Hate) in the leading roles. Paul Ronan (One Hundred Mornings), Aaron Heffernan (Obama Mia! / Love/Rosie) , Susan Loughnane (The Food Guide To Love, Love/Hate), Lauryn Canny (A Thousand Times Goodnight / Amber) and Mary Murray (Stalker) come together as the supporting cast.

The film follows washed-up author PC Molloy who is forced to write for April Devereaux's gossip magazine ‘Poison Pen’. He becomes caught up in a world of stars and their secrets and is soon in danger of becoming a celebrity himself. With the spotlight turning to Molloy, he struggles to keep his own secrets off the front page.

Eoin Colfer attained worldwide recognition in 2001, when the first book in his ‘Artemis Fowl’ series was published. To date more than half of his books have reached the New York Times Bestsellers list at least once.

‘Poison Pen’ will be filmed on location in Ireland over the next three weeks by the participants on the Filmbase/Staffordshire University MSc in Digital Feature Film Production. Post-production on the film aims to be completed in time for the 2014 Galway Film Fleadh.

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
