Break Out Pictures have announced the theatrical release of Colm Quinn’s Ransom ‘79 in cinemas from May 24. They have also released an official trailer for the documentary.

First look images, a poster, and a trailer for Ransom ‘79. The documentary is directed by Colm Quinn and is produced by John Kelleher and David Power with backing from Fís Éireann/Screen Ireland, Coimisiún na Meán, Virgin Media, Derrin Group and S481.

Ransom ‘79 tells the story of Irish reporter Charlie Bird and his determination to break one final story before his life is cut short by Motor Neurone Disease. Charlie's sources have given him a true crime story, one that had remained secret for decades, the attempt by a criminal gang to extort millions from the Irish government. The disease has already taken Charlie's voice, but through the use of technology means he can still do interviews using a voice app on his iPad. Even as his strength falters, he keeps chasing the story.

Speaking on the upcoming release Director Colm Quinn commented that: “I first discussed the Ransom 79 story with Charlie before his MND diagnosis, that he still wanted to pursue it while facing such a terrible illness is testament to his courage and determination. It was a privilege to travel around the country with him as he uncovered a truly unique story with his friend Colin Murphy. I know Charlie would be proud that his work has made it to the big screen, we miss him every day and feel very grateful to have helped him tell one last story.”

Ransom ‘79 will be released in Irish cinemas on May 24th, 2024.
