Open Casting Call for New Slate of Irish Film & Television Productions
06 Jul 2018 : Nathan Griffin
MovieExtras.ie is holding an open casting day in Dublin next weekend, Saturday, July 14th that will run from 10am to 5pm at The Alex Hotel, Fenian Street, Dublin 2.

Production wrapped on Flatley’s directorial debut back in March, and marks Flatley’s first venture into film as he makes his first feature length appearance as an actor, writer and director.

Flatley took to twitter to reveal the new poster for ‘Blackbird’ saying:

“I’ve dreamt of making a movie since I was 7 years old. Nothing great is ever easy but Nothing is Impossible!! Job Done!!!”

An internationally acclaimed Irish dancing, Flatley who is most famously known for ‘Riverdance’ and his own ‘Lord of the Dance’ production, retired from the sport in 2015.


Since then, the dancer recently signed with the LA-based Creative Agency CAA who has handled worldwide representation for Flatley as he looks to make strides into the film industry.

Flatley has featured on two short films prior to beginning work on his current project ‘Blackbird’, which is funded, directed & starring the Irish dancing legend.

The film, which has been shot across a number of locations including Ireland, England, and most notably Barbados, includes some well known faces such as Patrick Bergin (‘Sleeping with the enemy’), Ian Beattie (‘Game of Thrones’), and Eric Roberts (‘Runaway Train’, ‘Inherent Vice’).

The film will see Flatley play a veteran secret operative who moves to Barbados to enjoy his retirement, only for it to be interrupted when a well known international arms dealer (Eric Roberts) appears on the island.

The project is being produced by Richard Bolger of Irish-based Five Knight Films, whose recent credits include Irish box office hit ‘Cardboard Gangsters’. Other production companies such as West One Entertainment, Parachute Films, and Dancelord Pictures are also involved.

No release date has been announce as of yet, but early reports suggest the film will be released in the autumn of this year.
