Jack Reynor cast in ‘The Secret Scripture’
21 Jul 2014 : Deirdre Molumby
Twenty two year old Wicklow native Jack Reynor (‘What Richard Did’), who most recently appeared in Dublin for the premiere of ‘Transformers: Age of Extinction’ and was in Galway last week for the premiere of ‘Glassland’, will return to Ireland for his next movie role in the film adaptation of Sebastian Barry’s ‘The Secret Scripture’.

Rooney Mara (‘The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’) is also set to be joining the film in a lead role, and the cast will also include Vanessa Redgrave and Jeremy Irons. Mara and Reynor are currently in contract negotiations.

‘The Secret Scripture’, which was adapted for the screen by the late Johnny Ferguson, follows Roseanne, who is uncertain of her age and recounts her journey in asylums in Ireland over 60 years. As the story unfolds, audiences discover the why and how of Roseanne's incarceration and are also introduced to the second narrator of the novel, Roseanne's psychiatrist Dr William Grene.

The movie adaptation has been in the works for around two years, and was originally to be directed by Thaddeus O’Sullivan. Jim Sheridan (‘My Left Foot’) has since been attached to direct the project, which will be produced by his long-time collaborator Noel Pearson. ‘The Secret Scripture’ will reportedly be entirely shot in Ireland with an Irish crew.

IFTA winner Reynor will join the cast on set in mid-October. An insider told the Herald that his involvement will ensure he will avoid being typecast, and “will give Jack an opportunity to show his versatility and range”.

‘The Secret Scripture’ will begin shooting in September.
