'The Hit Producer’ with Michelle Doherty
Following its’ release last year at Movies@Dundrum and Movies@Swords on October 7th, Irish independent film ‘The Hit Producer’ has secured more screenings – this time at the Omniplex in Cork, Wexford and Limerick for a special one evening event on January 13th.

The film tells the story of Katelin Ballantine, a struggling movie producer in search of an investor, reluctantly follows the promise of money into Dublin's drug underworld where she witnesses a botched murder attempt. Forced to finish the job, she is blackmailed into killing for Edmund Murren, a small time, ruthless drug supplier hell bent on becoming top dog. Two years later, Katelin has put a who's who list of drug bosses six feet under and uses her producer role to maintain a low profile. But, when a seemingly simple job unexpectedly spirals out of control, and her identity becomes known to Murren's remaining ambitious and vengeful rivals, she is cut loose. Now the target, and with family in the line of fire, Katelin must adapt to survive the onslaught of the drug underworld as the thin veil masking her double life slips away.

Directed and produced by Kevin de la Isla O’Neill and written by Niall Queenan on an estimated budget of €18,000, the film last year won eight awards of excellence from The IndieFEST Film Awards.

The cast of ‘The Hit Producer’ includes Michelle Doherty, Neill Fleming, Fergus Kealy, Rory Mullen, Aenne Barr, Karl Shiels Andy Kellegher, Susan Barrett and Blake Norton. The film was shot entirely in Ireland by DOP Jass Foley with Mutiny Recording Studios and Screenscene making contributions during Post-production.
