Five Knight Films currently developing Eoin Macken helmed ‘Here Are The Young Men’

Five Knight Films are currently developing the feature film ‘Here Are The Young Men’ with Eoin Macken slated to direct.

The film was written by Macken and Rob Doyle and is based on Doyle’s acclaimed novel of the same name. It is about teenagers Matthew, Rez, Jen and Kearney who, facing the void of their post-school lives, spend their first summer of freedom in a savage apprenticeship on the streets of Dublin. Roaming aimlessly through the city, fuelled by drugs and dark fantasies, the teenagers spiral into self-destruction, fleeing a reality they despise.

Macken and Doyle have been writing the film together since they met at the Irish Book Awards ceremony where both of their novels where up for the same award at the end of 2014 in the Newcomer of the Year category.

Richard Bolger and Eoin Naughton will be producing the film through Five Knight Films. This will mark Five Knight Films second feature film that is planned to be released next year as they currently have Mark O’Connor’s ‘Cardboard Gangsters’ in post-production at EGG. Magnolia Entertainment and Troika Talent will be packaging the cast together on ‘Here Are The Young Men’.

Speaking to IFTN, producer Richard Bolger said: “A very high calibre of cast are attached to this project and we are very excited about working with them and bringing Rob's book to life under Eoin's direction.”

‘Here Are The Young Men’ is expected to shoot in September/October 2016 in and around Dublin City Centre.
