Nika McGuigan & Nora-Jane Noone to Star in Cathy Brady's Debut Feature Film 'Wildfire'
23 Oct 2018 : Nathan Griffin
Nora-Jane Noone & Nika McGuigan have been announced as the leading cast members of ‘Wildfire’, Cathy Brady’s debut feature film.

Produced by Samson Films’ David Collins (‘Once’, ‘Float like a Butterfly’), Tempesta Films’ Carlo Cresto-Dina (‘The Wonders’, ‘Happy as Lazzaro’) and Cowboy Films’ Charles Steel (‘The Last King Of Scotland’, ‘Marley’)

‘Wildfire’ tells the story of two sisters who grew up on the fractious Irish border. When one of them, who has been missing, finally returns home, the intense bond with her sister is reignited. Together they unearth their mother’s past but uncovered secrets and resentments which have been buried deep threaten to overwhelm them.

ScreenDaily has revealed that Brady wrote the screenplay while working with her leading actors over a year-long workshopping process that has focused on inprovisations, transcript, rehearsal, voice and dance drills.

The film is set to film on location in both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland during a scheduled six week production.

‘Wildfire’ has received development and production support from the Screen Ireland, Northern Ireland Screen, BFI and the Wellcome Trust. The film was also co-financed by Film4, Sulcata Productions, Illium and Lexis Media. Lizzie Francke, Celine Haddad, Lauren Dark, Emma Duffy, Robert Halmi and Jim Reeve are the executive producers.

The film has also been acquired by Great Point who will handle sales and intend to introduce it to buyers at the American Film Market in LA later this month.
