Shooting Wraps on Morgan Bushe Feature Debut 'Belly of the Whale'
12 Jan 2017 : Deirdre Hopkins
Morgan Bushe's debut feature directorial debut stars Pat Shortt, Peter Coonan and Michael Smiley.

Shooting has just finished on Fastnet Films latest feature film The Belly Of The Whale which will be released by Wildcard Distribution in Irish cinemas later this year.

Directed by Morgan Bushe and shot on location in North County Dublin, the black comedy follows two down-and-out drifters who attempt to alter their circumstances by teaming together to hold up a small town amusement arcade.

The film stars Pat Shortt (Garage) together with Lewis MacDougall (A Monster Calls), Art Parkinson (Kubo and The Two Strings), Michael Smiley (Free Fire), Peter Coonan (Love/Hate) and Lauren Kinsella (You’re Ugly Too).

Morgan Bushe, Director:
“It was a real honour and privilege to work with such a talented cast and crew. My hope is to present a picture of an intimate Irish world that ultimately works to say something definitive about the greater sense of mankind. The game is money, but what's at stake is so much more. We are excited to be working with Wildcard in bringing it out to Irish cinemas later this year".

The Belly of the Whale was produced by Rory Dungan for Fastnet Films with funding from Irish Film Board, RTE, BAI, Filmbase and Windmill Lane VFX.
