Cameras are rolling on Irish co-production ‘Shadow Dancer’ which began filming in locations around Dublin at the end of May. The production will continue shooting for seven weeks in total in locations such as Stoneybatter and Tallaght, with a week spent filming in London.

With Oscar winner James Marsh (Man on Wire) directing and a cast including Clive Owen (Children of Men), Andrea Riseborough (Made in Dagenham), Domhnall Gleeson (Sensation, Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows) Gillian Anderson (The Last King of Scotland) and Aidan Gillen (Wake Wood), the film follows a young mother who is heavily involved with the Irish republican Movement. She is arrested in London following an aborted bombing attempt and must either choose to inform on her family or spend the rest of her life behind bars. Cinematographer is Rob Hardy (Boy A), costumes by Lorna Marie Mugan (Treasure Island) and production designer is Jon Henson (Last Chance Harvey).

‘Shadow Dancer’ is being produced by Unanimous Entertainment’s Chris Coen (Funny Games) and Element Pictures Ed Guiney (This Must be the Place) and Andrew Lowe (The Guard) with BBC Films’ Joe Oppenheimer executive producing. The budget for the production is approximately €5 million and is funded by the BBC, BFI, UK Tax Credit, WildBunch, Section 481 and the Irish Film Board. It will be edited in London.

French distribution company WildBunch bought the international sale rights to the film in early May and Paramount Pictures will distribute the film in both the UK and Ireland early next year.
