Sales deal confirmed for 'Damo & Ivor: The Movie'
27 Oct 2017 :
Carnaby International has confirmed that it has obtained worldwide sales rights to Irish comedy 'Damo & Ivor: The Movie'.

What began as a couple of skits on Youtube for creator Andy Quirke in the mid-2000s, turned into a two-season TV show funded and picked up by RTÉ, and furthermore a feature film.​

The film is co-produced by Parallel Films and Blue Ink Films. Ruth Carter is producer while Alan Moloney and Johanna Hogan are Executive Producers.​

The film catches up on the lives of identical twin brothers Damo & Ivor, who were separated at birth as they set off on their journey across the country to find their long lost brother, John Joe.​

CEO of Carnaby International, Andrew Loveday, said:

“We are enormously excited to be bringing Damo & Ivor to market. Andy Quirke is an inspired comedic writer and this really translates on screen in this laugh-out-loud funny and heart-warming picture.”

Alongside Quirke, who plays twin brothers Damo & Ivor, the film will also star Tina Kellegher (In the Name of the Father), Ruth McCabe (My Left Foot) and Simon Delaney (The Conjuring 2).​

Directors Ronan and Rob Burke commented:

“Carnaby has been passionate about our film from the start and we are so excited to be working with them. We would love Damo & Ivor to reach as wide an audience as possible and Carnaby is the perfect company to make this happen.”

The film is supported by the Irish Film Board, RTÉ and the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland​

No release date has been announced but the film is expected in cinemas in 2018.
