Shooting date for Knockout-Feb 2

Post by Admin on Mon Jan 18, 2010 11:27 pm

Lights, cameras, action

THE IRISH Film Board has taken the chance to celebrate the advent of the Hollywood awards season with a press release announcing the imminent arrival of more A-listers to our tax-friendly shores: Steven Soderbergh’s Knockout , a spy thriller set to star Gina Carano, Ewan McGregor and Irish actor Michael Fassbender, has been confirmed for production in Ireland next month, bringing 100 film industry jobs for Irish crew.

None of this glamorous activity would be possible without the support of the tax relief provided under Section 481, according to the film’s Irish producer Alan Moloney.

“Section 481 is a key element in facilitating film and film-making in this country,” Minister for Arts, Sports and Tourism Martin Cullen said, which is interesting as the Government has threatened to remove or change the terms of the tax relief on countless occasions. In fairness, the last change, in the 2008 Finance Act, made improvements to the relief, while the Commission on Taxation also gave this part of the tax code its seal of approval last September.

Keeping some semblance of a film industry here through tax reliefs generates more wealth for the exchequer than it costs it (the benefits in 2004-2006 were €96.3 million and the costs were €90.9 million, according to the 2007 Indecon review).

Much of Section 481’s pulling power now lies in the fact that its tax incentives apply to television production as well as film, which is not the case under the UK’s equivalent scheme. Bagging the production of ITV’s Saturday night sci-fi series Primeval – which starts filming here in March – may not be quite as satisfyingly “Hollywood” as a Soderbergh flick, but it’s likely to make a more lasting contribution to Ireland’s reputation as a friendly place to roll cameras.

Gina Carano's 'Knockout' film to start shooting Feb. 2 in Ireland
08:08 PM

Filming for the Gina Carano vehicle Knockout will start next month in Dublin, according to the Irish Film Board.

A three-week shoot in the Irish capital is scheduled to begin Feb. 2 for Oscar-winning director Steven Soderbergh's espionage movie. The movie was designed to feature Dublin, including rooftop sequences and scenes in the heart of the city, the Belfast Telegraph reports.

Other planned locations include Barcelona, New Mexico and Turkey, according to the newspaper.

Carano, who hasn't competed since losing to Cristiane "Cyborg" Santos in August, has used her fame from mixed martial arts to garner roles on TV shows and movies in recent years. Knockout, her first starring role, has Carano playing a spy out for revenge.

Mixed martial artists generally have found themselves in B-movies and other low-end material, but Soderbergh's credentials give the project some cachet. Carano also gets to work with some A-list actors, including Ewan McGregor and Michael Fassbender.

Hollywood stars to shoot in Dublin

(UKPA) – 1 hour ago

Oscar-winning film director Steven Soderbergh will begin shooting a new film starring top Hollywood stars on the streets of Dublin within weeks, it has been confirmed.

Scenes for the action spy thriller Knockout - which was written especially for the Irish capital - will be filmed on rooftops and other locations around the city centre.

Ewan McGregor, best known for Trainspotting and the Star Wars prequel trilogy, and award-winning Irish actor Michael Fassbender, critically acclaimed for his portrayal of Bobby Sands in Hunger, both have starring roles.

Hollywood heavyweights Denis Quaid and Michael Douglas have yet to sign off on their involvement in the movie.

It is understood filming will take place at Dublin Docklands, Dublin Airport, the Shelbourne Hotel, as well as other locations in the city centre and Co Wicklow.

Shooting begins on February 2 and is expected to take three weeks.

The Irish Film Board, which is part-financing the project, said more than 100 jobs will be created in Ireland, including cast and crew.

Soderbergh, who won an Academy Award for directing the crime drama blockbuster Traffic in 2000 was also behind big screen hits Ocean's Thirteen and Erin Brockovich.

US producer Gregory Jacobs said both himself and Soderbergh were delighted with the talent of Irish technicians and crafts people working on the project.

"Unlike most productions that tailor what's available to the script, we wrote this movie for Dublin and are thrilled that the city has been so co-operative," he said.

Soderbergh Confirms Irish ‘Knockout’

19 Jan 2010

Ewan McGregor

‘Knockout’, a new feature film to be directed by Steven Soderbergh (Ocean’s Thirteen, Erin Brockovich) will start a three week shoot in and around Dublin and Wicklow next month. The film which was written specifically for Dublin and will star an A-list cast including Ewan McGregor (The Men Who Stare at Goats), and IFTA nominee, Michael Fassbender (Fish Tank).

US stars Dennis Quaid (The Day After Tomorrow) and Michael Douglas (The Game) are also in talks to star in the film which will mark the debut of martial arts expert Gina Carano.

‘Knockout’ tells the story of Mallory Kane, a young, tough, beautiful freelance covert operative, played by Carano. She is hired out by her handler to various global entities to perform jobs which governments can’t authorize and heads of state would rather not know about. For all her looks and youth, Mallory is still the best in her field, and her skills are in constant demand. After a mission to rescue a hostage in Barcelona, Mallory is quickly dispatched on another mission to Dublin. There she partners with another operative, the suave and debonair Paul.

When the operation goes awry and Mallory finds she has been double crossed, she needs to use all of her skills, tricks and abilities to escape an international manhunt, make it back to the United States, protect her family, and exact revenge on those that have betrayed her. Fassbender will be a member of her commando spy unit, and a potential candidate for Kane’s betrayer. McGregor is set to play the owner of the private military company who Mallory works for. The film will also shoot on location in New Mexico, Turkey and Barcelona.

Produced by Gregory Jacobs (Ocean’s Thirteen) and Relativity Media in cooperation with Irish company Parallel Films (Perrier’s Bounty, Intermission) with funding from Bord Scannán na hÉireann/the Irish Film Board, ‘Knockout’ will film in Dublin and Wicklow for three weeks beginning on Tuesday, February 2nd.

The project will provide in excess of 100 Irish jobs with key Irish cast and crew working alongside international crew on the feature. IFTA winning composer David Holmes (Hunger), who worked with Soderberg on the ‘Ocean’s Eleven’ films, is also attached to the project.

Commenting on bringing the project to Ireland, US producer Gregory Jacobs says “Unlike most productions that tailor what's available to the script, we wrote this movie for Dublin and are thrilled that the city has been so cooperative. Steven Soderbergh and I are very happy to have such a great group of Irish technicians and crafts people on the project and a terrific Irish partner in Parallel Films.”

Irish producer Alan Moloney (Breakfast on Pluto) also voiced his delight, saying “Getting to work with Steven Soderbergh and Greg Jacobs is a real treat for us and me personally. I have admired their work for many years and I have no doubt that ‘Knockout’ will be a great movie. Of course this could not be possible without the combined support of the Irish Film Board and the incentive available under Section 481. I look forward to seeing the growth in both these provisions as we move into the next decade. Film and television production is undeniably one of the areas where the Irish economy can benefit hugely moving into the future.”

Simon Perry, IFB Chief Executive continued the positive strain, commenting “We are delighted that our contribution to attracting such a top quality US filmmaking team to shoot in Ireland has paid off. It’s excellent news for the Irish film industry and for Irish tourism, too. Most importantly, the fact that this project was written especially for Dublin reflects the growth of Ireland’s international image and reputation over the past few years.”

Welcoming today’s announcement, Martin Cullen TD, Minister for Arts, Sport and Tourism said “I am delighted this new international feature will begin shooting in Ireland next month. We welcome international actors Ewan McGregor, Michael Fassbender and Gina Carano as they begin filming in Dublin and Wicklow. I am also particularly pleased that over 100 film industry jobs will be created for Irish cast and crew. ‘Knockout’ will give a great boost not only to the Irish audiovisual industry but to the Irish economy in general.”

Minister Cullen added: “Section 481 is a key element in facilitating film and filmmaking in this country. Our attractiveness as a film location is also built around our home-based expertise and the reputation which we have gained throughout the world in both the technical and acting arenas. I wish all those associated with this important, new Irish Film Board-supported production every success.”

The improvements to Section 481 introduced by Minister for Arts, Sport and Tourism Martin Cullen last year, together with experienced Irish production companies and film crew were all instrumental in bringing the film to Ireland. Other recent projects that have filmed on location in Ireland include ‘Leap Year’ starring Amy Adams and Matthew Goode, and the UK TV series ‘Primeval’ is set to begin production in March this year.

Soderbergh movie set to begin filming in Dublin

19.01.2010
US movie director Steven Soderbergh, famed for his work on movies such as the Oceans Eleven franchise and Traffic, is set to begin production on a new film next month, a considerable part of which is set in Dublin.

Knockout features an A-list cast including Ewan McGregor (pictured) and Michael Fassbender.

Parts of the movie will be filmed in Dublin city centre and will include rooftop chases and fights.

Produced by Gregory Jacobs and Relativity Media in co-operation with Irish company Parallel Films (Perrier's Bounty, Intermission, Breakfast on Pluto, The Clinic), with funding from Bord Scannán na hÉireann/the Irish Film Board, filming for Knockout will begin on 2 February and will last for three weeks.

The spy thriller tells the story of Mallory Kane, a freelance covert operative played by US mixed martial arts fighter Gina Carano, who is hired out by her handler to various global entities to perform jobs which governments can't authorise and heads of state would rather not know about.

After a mission to rescue a hostage in Barcelona, Mallory is quickly dispatched on another to Dublin where she partners up with another operative. But the operation goes awry as Mallory is double crossed, and she must use all her skills to escape an international manhunt, make it back to the US, protect her family, and exact revenge on those that have betrayed her.

Fassbender will play a member of Mallory’s commando spy unit, while McGregor is set to play the owner of the private military company who Mallory works for.

Carano has no acting experience but is well-known in the US as a kick boxer and a star of the US version of Gladiators.

Speaking on RTE Radio’s Morning Ireland programme today, the Irish producer of Knockout Alan Moloney said the decision to locate part of the film in Dublin was in order to bring something fresh to the screen as movie audiences are so used to seeing the likes of London and Paris immortalised in celluloid.

Moloney also said it was his suspicion that Knockout would become a franchise as there is a question mark at the end of the movie that leaves it open for another instalment.

The US actors Michael Douglas and Dennis Quaid are also rumoured to be involved in the project. Moloney said he was “hopeful and optimistic” of their participation.

The movie will be shot in or around the Dublin 2 area including Grafton Street and The Shelbourne Hotel. Parts of it will also be shot at Ardmore Studios in Co Wicklow.

Scenes for Knockout will also be filmed on location in New Mexico, Turkey and Barcelona.

The project will also provide in excess of 100 Irish jobs with key Irish cast and crew working alongside international crew on the feature.

Award-winning Irish composer David Holmes is also attached to the project.

Welcoming today's announcement, Martin Cullen TD, Minister for Arts, Sport and Tourism said: "I am delighted this new international feature will begin shooting in Ireland next month. We welcome international actors Ewan McGregor, Michael Fassbender and Gina Carano as they begin filming in Dublin and Wicklow. I am also particularly pleased that over 100 film industry jobs will be created for Irish cast and crew.

“Knockout will give a great boost not only to the Irish audiovisual industry but to the Irish economy in general,” he added.

Soderbergh shoots in Ireland!
By Vic Barry on 11:11 AM News

Steven Soderbergh will turn up in Ireland to shoot Knockout which was specifically written for Dublin and will start a 3 week shoot in and around Dublin and Wicklow next month.

‘Knockout’ tells the story of Mallory Kane, a young, tough, beautiful freelance covert operative, played by Carano. She is hired out by her handler to various global entities to perform jobs which governments can’t authorize and heads of state would rather not know about. For all her looks and youth, Mallory is still the best in her field, and her skills are in constant demand.

When the operation goes awry and Mallory finds she has been double crossed, she needs to use all of her skills, tricks and abilities to escape an international manhunt, make it back to the United States, protect her family, and exact revenge on those that have betrayed her. Fassbender will be a member of her commando spy unit, and a potential candidate for Kane’s betrayer. McGregor is set to play the owner of the private military company who Mallory works for. The film will also shoot on location in New Mexico, Turkey and Barcelona.

Politicians never miss a beat and our Minister for arts and tourism etc. Martin Cullen said “I am delighted this new international feature will begin shooting in Ireland next month. We welcome international actors Ewan McGregor, Michael Fassbender and Gina Carano as they begin filming in Dublin and Wicklow. I am also particularly pleased that over 100 film industry jobs will be created for Irish cast and crew. ‘Knockout’ will give a great boost not only to the Irish audiovisual industry but to the Irish economy in general.” Minister Cullen added: “Section 481 is a key element in facilitating film and filmmaking in this country. Our attractiveness as a film location is also built around our home-based expertise and the reputation which we have gained throughout the world in both the technical and acting arenas. I wish all those associated with this important, new Irish Film Board-supported production every success.”

Either way though, fantastic news for the Irish film industry and no doubt we’ll try and sell a few Aran jumpers to the cast and crew! 2010 is gonna be a good year! Where’s my knitting needle!!!!

Steven Soderbergh shooting movie in Dublin!
Tuesday, January 19, 2010

The Ocean’s 13 and Erin Brockovich director, Steven Soderbergh, will be shooting a new thriller around Dublin over the coming weeks. Starting Feb 2nd, you might be able to get a glance at Ewan McGregor and Michael Fassbender running around the streets and rooftops of Dublin!

Ewan McGregor

Michael Fassbender

Some of the primary locations include the Docklands, Dublin Airport, the Shelbourne Hotel and numerous other locations around the city center. The movie is titled “Knockout” and movie was written for Dublin to be the primary location! Other locations will include New Mexico, Turkey and Barcelona.

Speaking to the Irish Times, Producer Gregory Jacobs said:

“Unlike most productions that tailor what’s available to the script, we wrote this movie for Dublin and are thrilled that the city has been so co-operative”

It’s a spy flick who’s been double crossed, is the general gist. I’m sure we’ll be hearing / seeing alot more of this in the coming weeks.

Production – Ireland
Soderbergh to Knockout Ireland

US director Steven Soderbergh’s action-packed revenge drama Knockout will commence shooting in Dublin and Wicklow for three weeks beginning February 2nd. The film stars Ewan McGregor, Michael Fassbender, Dennis Quaid, and Michael Douglas and will mark the debut of martial arts expert Gina Carano.

Gregory Jacobs and Relativity Media are producing the film in association with Irish company Parallel Films (Perrier’s Bounty) with funding from the Irish Film Board (IFB).

Jacobs said, “Unlike most productions that tailor what’s available to the script, we wrote this movie for Dublin and are thrilled that the city has been so cooperative.”

Parallel’s Alan Moloney said, “Getting to work with Steven Soderbergh and Greg Jacobs is a real treat for us and me personally. Of course this could not be possible without the combined support of the IFB and the incentive available under Section 481. I look forward to seeing the growth in both these provisions as we move into the next decade. Film and television production is undeniably one of the areas where the Irish economy can benefit hugely moving into the future.”

IFB CEO Simon Perry said, “We are delighted that our contribution to attracting such a top quality US filmmaking team to shoot in Ireland has paid off. Most importantly, the fact that this project was written especially for Dublin reflects the growth of Ireland’s international image and reputation over the past few years.”

Martin Cullen, Minister for Arts, Sport and Tourism said, “I am particularly pleased that over 100 film industry jobs will be created for Irish cast and crew. Knockout will give a great boost not only to the Irish audiovisual industry but to the Irish economy in general.”

Steven Soderbergh movie promises jobs in Ireland

Posted by Team Boxwish 2 days ago

Having directed the Ocean’s trilogy, Oscar-winning filmmaker Steven Soderbergh is more familiar with Las Vegas than Ireland, but he’s trading the bright lights of Sin City for the charms of the Emerald Isle as next month he’s taking his latest movie, Knockout there. Scheduled to hit cinemas next year, Knockout tells the story of a black ops agent (to be played by Hollywood newcomer, mixed martial arts fighter and TV gladiator “Crush”, Gina Carano) looking for revenge after being double-crossed on a mission and co-stars such familiar names as Ewan McGregor (pictured), Michael Fassbender and perhaps even Dennis Quaid, Channing Tatum and Michael Douglas who are rumoured to be linked to the project.

The action thriller boasts a number of Irish connections, being produced in co-operation with Irish company, Parallel Films, funded in part by The Irish Film Board and with Irish composer David Holmes on soundtrack duties, making Ireland a natural stopover for this very international production which is also taking in locations in Barcelona, New Mexico and Turkey.

On Irish soil, the movie is planning to film extensively in Dublin, with specific spots including Dublin Airport, the Shelbourne Hotel, Grafton Street and Dublin Docklands, while away from the city, Ardmore Studios in County Wicklow will also be home to the Hollywood crew. Shooting is expected to last three weeks starting on Tuesday 2nd February, producing up to 100 jobs for locals and bringing plenty of spending money to the area.

The film’s Irish producer, Alan Moloney believes that the streets of Dublin will prove a popular big screen respite from overly familiar cities such as London and Paris, far from a coincidence as the film’s US producer, Gregory Jacobs reveals: “Unlike most productions that tailor what’s available to the script, we wrote this movie for Dublin and are thrilled that the city has been so co-operative.”

Moloney even has high hopes that Knockout could go on to become a franchise, with his excitement echoed by Martin Cullen, the minister for arts, sport and tourism, who responded: “I am delighted this new international feature will begin shooting in Ireland next month. We welcome international actors Ewan McGregor, Michael Fassbender and Gina Carano as they begin filming in Dublin and Wicklow.”

He continues: “I am also particularly pleased that over 100 film industry jobs will be created for Irish cast and crew. Knockout will give a great boost not only to the Irish audiovisual industry but to the Irish economy in general.”

Will Knockout pack a punch for Irish tourism?
