Expats return to ramped up film biz
Former natives return home for new productions
By Adam Dawtrey

'Your Highness'
Director and double Oscar-nominated screenwriter Terry George became known for dramas such as "In the Name of the Father" and "Some Mother's Son" made during the period of civil strife known as the Troubles in his native Northern Ireland.

But surprisingly, when the Belfast native, who has long resided in New York, returned home last year to make his short film "The Shore" in County Down, it was the first time he had ever shot anything in Northern Ireland itself. His early movies were all filmed south of the border in Dublin.

After so many decades lost to sectarian strife, it's a sure sign of Northern Ireland's growing credibility as a production base that some of its most successful sons are starting to come back home.

George is back in Belfast shooting his next feature, "Whole Lotta Soul," a heist comedy starring Brendan Fraser.

Another native, Liam Neeson also returned recently for the first time since his early career to make "Five Minutes of Heaven."

"The large-scale American projects being made in Belfast are causing our bigger names, whether producers, directors or on-screen talent, to turn round and look back at Northern Ireland," says Richard Williams, chief exec of Northern Ireland Screen. "It's no accident that Liam and Terry have been working back here. It's part of a sense that you can do things here now."

"I felt for quite a while it was a gap in my career that I hadn't actually filmed in my homeland, and it was the best experience I've ever had," says George. "Film in Northern Ireland has really ramped up. It has a strong infrastructure now, and the government and the community seem to be in favor of it. They aren't jaded about people shooting on their streets."

Aptly enough, "Shore" is the story of an Irish exile (Ciaran Hinds) who fled to America 25 years ago to escape Belfast's violence and is now bringing his grown-up daughter back to meet his childhood friends. The 30-minute film was the first to get funding from Tourism Ireland, which wants to back projects displaying the region's attractions to international audiences.

George says both "Shore" and "Sole" are his attempt to show the world how much Northern Ireland has changed since the Troubles.

"Sole" is produced by Mark Huffam and Simon Bosanquet's Generator Entertainment. Belfast-based Huffam is one of the U.K.'s most established producers, with credits including "Mamma Mia!" and Ridley Scott's upcoming "Prometheus." He has become a key player in bringing film and TV projects into Northern Ireland, both with Generator's own slate of low-budget genre pics, and as the go-to producer for bigger international projects.

As well as "Your Highness" and "Game of Thrones," he produced rock comedy "Killing Bono," which used Belfast locations last year to double as 1980s Dublin.

Another returning native is Andrew Eaton, best known as helmer Michael Winterbottom's producer. London-based Eaton is exec producing "Good Vibrations," from rising local producer Chris Martin, based on the true story of the legendary Belfast punk impresario Terri Hooley.

Starring Michael Fassbender and Liam Cunningham, "Vibrations" will be directed by the Belfast-based husband-and-wife team Glen Leyburn and Lisa Barros D'Sa. They previously shot "Cherrybomb" for Generator and have now formed their own film and music production outfit, Canderblinks, in partnership with David Holmes, the Northern Irish DJ and film composer.


And John Mcilduff is an experienced theater and commercials director who has moved back home to Belfast from Paris to launch Dumb Productions. His first microbudget movie "Behold the Lamb" was funded by NIS.

Hunger star Michael Fassbender has good vibes about role in Terri Hooley movie

By Maureen Coleman
Thursday, 31 March 2011

Hollywood actor Michael Fassbender is set to appear in a new movie about the life of Belfast punk impresario Terri Hooley.

Fassbender, star of the award-winning Hunger, Inglourious Basterds and Jane Eyre, will feature in Good Vibrations, which is being filmed in Belfast over the coming months.

It is understood Fassbender, whose mother hails from Larne, will play a supporting role in the movie, but was eager to come back to Belfast after falling in love with the city while shooting the Channel 4 film Hunger.

The German-born star, who grew up in Co Kerry, played IRA hunger striker Bobby Sands in the multi-award-winning drama.

Good Vibrations will see Fassbender team up with Hunger co-star Liam Cunningham, who was also keen to get involved with the project. It is not yet known what roles Fassbender and Cunningham will play, but it is understood punk godfather Hooley will be portrayed by local actor Richard Dormer.

Fassbender, who lives in LA, stars as the brooding romantic lead Edward Rochester in the new Jane Eyre film opposite Mia Wasikowska, due for release this month. He also stars in X Men: First Class and A Dangerous Method, alongside Keira Knightley. He is currently filming Ridley Scott's movie Prometheus, opposite Charlize Theron.

Good Vibrations, directed by husband and wife team Glen Leyburn and Lisa Barros D'Sa, will be produced by local man Chris Martin. Andrew Eaton, best known as Michael Winterbottom's producer, will be the executive producer.

The film will be scored by David Holmes, who befriended Fassbender and Cunningham when he worked on the soundtrack for Hunger.

Good Vibrations is one of a flurry of films to be shot here this spring. Jump, starring Belfast actor Marty McCann, is in the final stages of filming, while McCann will reappear in Terry George's new project Whole Lotta Sole, which is due to begin shooting next month in Belfast.

Another Hollywood actor, Brendan Fraser of The Mummy fame, will star in it, alongside McCann.

Richard Williams, chief executive of Northern Ireland Screen, said: “Over the past few years we have attracted a number of large productions to Northern Ireland, which, in these recessionary times, is great news for the return to the Northern Ireland economy that they bring.

“Now we are delighted to be embarking on a series of fantastic indigenous projects — local stories featuring a wealth of local talent both in front of and behind the cameras — as we maintain our commitment to develop a dynamic and vibrant screen industry in Northern Ireland remains as strong as ever.”

Fassbender & Holmes Feel 'Good Vibrations', Belfast Shoot Confirmed

31 Mar 2011 :

Northern Irish production companies, Revolutions Films and Canderblinks are currently in development with ‘Good Vibrations’, a feature film centring around the Belfast-born founder of Good Vibrations records, Terri Hooley. The feature, developed with funding from the IFB, is scheduled to shoot in August 2011 in and around Belfast with actor Michael Fassbender (Hunger) signed on to appear.

‘Good Vibrations’ will be the second feature from directors Glen Leyburn and Lisa Barros D'Sa, the creative pair behind the IFTA nominated feature ‘Cherrybomb’. The filmmakers have founded their own film and music production company, Calderblinks with renowned NI composer and DJ. David Holmes (Out of Sight, Ocean’s Eleven) who scored ‘Cherrybomb’ and has come on board to score ‘Good Vibrations’, the company’s first feature.

Fassbender is pencilled in for a supporting role with the film’s lead cast yet to be confirmed but producer Chris Martin tells IFTN these will be announced in the coming weeks, as contracts are signed. Michael Fassbender’s ‘Hunger’ co-star Liam Cunningham is rumoured to be in talks for a part in the film.

Written by Glenn Patterson and Colin Carberry, ‘Good Vibrations’ will profile Belfast-born Terri Hooley who founded Good Vibrations Records and kick started the careers of several young Belfast punk bands, including The Undertones. The producers on board are Chris Martin and Revolution Films’ Andrew Eaton (A Mighty Heart).

It is expected that the UK/Irish co-production will go into pre-production in June and July and will shoot mostly in Belfast in August with some additional footage possibly being shot in the Republic of Ireland. The film’s post production is to be carried out in the Republic of Ireland. 'Good Vibrations' was developed with funding from the Irish Film Board and the IFB is also providing production support funding alongside Northern Ireland Screen. The budget and funding information for the film is TBC.

Hollywood actor Michael Fassbender has been cast in a new film about the life of Belfast punk legend Terri Hooley.

Fassbender, who was born in Germany but grew up in Killarney, will feature in “Good Vibrations” which will be filmed in Belfast over the coming months.

The “Jane Eyre” actor is said to have been cast in a supporting role for the movie. The actor is eager to return to Belfast after falling in love with the city while shooting the Channel 4 film “Hunger”.

“Good Vibrations” will see Fassbender team up with his “Hunger” co-star Liam Cunningham. The film will be directed by husband and wife Glen Leyburn and Lisa Barros D'Sa.

The score will be produced by David Holmes, who became friendly with Fassbender when he worked on “Hunger”.

Speaking about the film, Richard Williams, chief executive of Northern Ireland Screen, said: “Over the past few years we have attracted a number of large productions to Northern Ireland, which, in these recessionary times, is great news for the return to the Northern Ireland economy that they bring.

“Now we are delighted to be embarking on a series of fantastic indigenous projects — local stories featuring a wealth of local talent both in front of and behind the cameras — as we maintain our commitment to develop a dynamic and vibrant screen industry in Northern Ireland remains as strong as ever,” he told the Belfast Telegraph.

About 7 hours ago by Joseph Gibson
Michael Fassbender And Liam Cunningham Are Punks

Punk rock hasn’t spawned too many good movies. I can think of Control, the Ian Curtis biopic, and 24 Hour Party People. And hopefully the upcoming Good Vibrations, which will be directed by the duo of Glenn Leyburn and Lisa Barros D’Sa, will be added to this list as well. Here’s what it’s all about, if you think you can handle this frontal assault on all the societal and aesthetic conventions you hold dear:

“‘Good Vibrations,’ which will focus on Belfast music legend Terri Hooley. Hooley founded the Good Vibrations record store on Belfast’s Great Victoria Street, from which a record label sprung, with bands like The Moondogs, The Shapes, Protex, The Outcasts and, most notably, The Undertones”

Hooley will be played by Richard Dormer. And Michael Fassbender, as part of his contractual obligation to appear in every movie, will be in it as well, along with Liam Cunningham. No word yet on who they’re going to play, but there IS word on who’s going to play the music: David Holmes, who also wrote the score for the fantastic film Hunger, also starring Michael Fassbender. And what’s more punk than starving yourself to death in prison? (via The Playlist)

‘Hunger’ Actors Michael Fassbender And Liam Cunningham To Reunite For ‘Good Vibrations’
Published on April 5, 2011 by Nick Newman

Perhaps the most memorable scene in Steve McQueen‘s extraordinary debut film Hunger is the one in which Michael Fassbender and Liam Cunningham simply sit down at a table and have a conversation (as shown above). It’s not memorable because of great acting or dialogue, although both of those attributes apply, but because the majority of that scene – around 17 minutes – is done in one continuous shot. While that amazing feat probably won’t be accomplished for their onscreen reunion in the upcoming Good Vibrations, it’s nice to see that the two have gotten back together.

The film, which is being directed by Glenn Leyburn and Lisa Barros D’Sa and scripted by Glenn Patterson and Colin Carberry, focuses on the influential Terri Hooley. He owned a record shop in England (called Good Vibrations) in the 70′s, and in that time started its own label that included bands like The Moondogs, The Shapes and The Undertones. Fassbender and Cunningham have unspecified supporting roles, while Hooley himself is being played by Richard Dormer. Production begins in Norther Ireland later this year.

Additionally, The Belfast Telegraph says that David Holmes, who did the music on the Ocean’s trilogy and Hunger, will be composing the film’s score. All in all, this film seems to have a lot of promise behind it, and I hope that it can live up to it. I’m generally a fan of period pieces centered around music (like Pirate Radio), so you can definitely count me in.

What do you think of this project? Does the subject matter sound interesting, and do you like the cast?

Michael Fassbender & Liam Cunningham To Star In Northern Irish Punk Movie ‘Good Vibrations’
David Holmes To Write The Score

Considering the way in which punk rock changed the music world so comprehensively, it’s surprising that relatively few films have been made following the great bands of the era. There have been great documentaries, from “The Filth and the Fury” to Ramones doc “End of a Century” and “Joe Strummer: The Future Is Unwritten,” and a handful of dramatic features—“Sid and Nancy” and “SLC Punk,” while both flawed, have much to recommend them. But for the most part, the genre has produced films closer to the terrible Ian Dury biopic “Sex & Drugs & Rock and Roll” than to anything else.

But things may be turning around. There’s a Joe Strummer biopic in the works, for example and now word’s come in that a biopic is being planned of one of the key figures in the Northern Irish punk scene of the 1970s. CineEuropa report that “Good Vibrations,” which will focus on Belfast music legend Terri Hooley, is gearing up for production in the city in August. Hooley founded the Good Vibrations record store on Belfast’s Great Victoria Street, from which a record label sprung, with bands like The Moondogs, The Shapes, Protex, The Outcasts and, most notably, The Undertones, whose song “Teenage Kicks” became the all-time favorite song of legendary British radio DJ John Peel, and one of the most seminal tracks of the era (listen below).

An impressive selection of Northern Irish talent has been assembled for the production—Glenn Leyburn and Lisa Barros D’Sa, who helmed last year’s decent Rupert Grint-starring coming-of-age tale “Cherrybomb,” are directing, from a script by Glenn Patterson and Colin Carberry, while Michael Winterbottom‘s producing partner Andrew Eaton is serving as executive producer on the film. Theatre veteran Richard Dormer (”Five Minutes To Heaven”) will play Hooley, while, most excitingly, soon-to-be-A-lister Michael Fassbender will reunite with his “Hunger” co-star Liam Cunningham (”Clash of the Titans”) on the project with both taking supporting roles in the film.

There’s no word on which roles the pair will play—Fassbender as The Undertones’ frontman Feargal Sharkey, perhaps? The Belfast Telegraph also report that another Belfast native who’s made it big in Hollywood—namely musician David Holmes, who was behind the scores for the “Ocean’s Eleven” trilogy, as well as the excellent score for the aforementioned “Hunger”—will write the music for the film. All in all, it’s a very promising line-up, and will hopefully serve as a sort of Northern Irish answer to the great “24 Hour Party People.” Filming gets underway in Belfast in August, so we should start to see the film making the festival rounds later in 2012.

Terri Hooley Biopic Gets Green Light



Northern Irish music mogul Terri Hooley is to have his life immortalised on screen in a movie biopic starring Steve Coogan and Michael Fassbender.

Hooley was branded the godfather of the Belfast punk scene after setting up a record shop in the 1970s and discovering Teenage Kicks hitmakers The Undertones.

Now his story is to be told in a full-length feature film, co-produced by Snow Patrol frontman Gary Lightbody. Northern Irish actor Richard Dormer will take the lead role.

Lightbody tells Mojo magazine, "He lived a crazy life. A really f**king dark, hilarious, wasted life... Terri's an unsung hero. Despite discovering The Undertones, he never sold out... The story is hilarious and touching."

Filming gets under way this weekend on Good Vibrations, a biopic based on the story of Belfast punk impresario Terri Hooley.

Shooting is expected to take place in Belfast city centre, where a disused shop has been transformed into Hooley's iconic record store.

Star of stage and screen Richard Dormer is playing the role of Hooley (right), while Hollywood actor Michael Fassbender is understood to be playing a record company executive in the movie.

Joining Fassbender will be his Hunger co-star Liam Cunningham, while it's been rumoured that Steve Coogan and Killing Bono's Robert Sheehan will also feature.

The movie, scripted by writers Glenn Patterson and Colin Carberry, will be directed by Glenn Leyburn and Lisa Barros D'Sa. The pair previously directed the coming-of-age tale 'Cherrybomb'. Londonderry-born Andrew Eaton is on board as executive producer.

Belfast DJ, musician and composer David Holmes ('Ocean's Eleven' and 'Hunger') will provide the score, with backing from Snow Patrol.

Hooley set up the Good Vibrations record store which evolved into a label, signing bands like The Undertones, The Shapes, The Outcasts and The Moondogs.

He is considered one of Belfast's music legends and has been at the centre of several Facebook campaigns to be elected Lord Mayor of Belfast and host of the forthcoming MTV EMA awards.

Speaking about the film, Hooley said that the reality only dawned on him when he visited the production office and saw photographs depicting his life all over the walls.

"It was a bit freaky to begin with, but I'm getting used to it now," he said.

Three More Join GOOD VIBRATIONS

movie news | 13 Sep 2011
Punk biopic gains three new additions; looses three actors?

Jodie Whittaker (‘Attack the Block’), Dylan Moran (‘A Film with Me in It’) and Adrian Dunbar (‘The Crying Game’) have signed up for the currently in production punk biopic ‘Good Vibrations.’ The trio joins Richard Dormer and Liam Cunningham.

Interestingly Cineuropa’s article has no mention of previously attached actors Michael Fassbender (‘Prometheus’), Steve Coogan (‘Our Idiot Brother’), or Robert Sheehan (‘Killing Bono’). It is not known if the actors are still involved or were forced to step away from the movie due to busy schedules.

Penned by Glenn Patterson and Colin Carberry, the Glenn Leyburn and Lisa Barros D’Sa-directed movie chronicles the life of Terri Hooley, Belfast’s godfather of punk.

Michael Fassbender, Steve Coogan & Robert Sheehan Not Feeling The ‘Good Vibrations’
Irish Comedian Dylan Moran & Jodie Whittaker Now On Board


Glenn Leyburn and Lisa Barros D’Sa, the husband and wife duo behind the Rupert Grint vehicle “Cherrybomb,” pulled a major coup earlier this year when they managed to recruit Michael Fassbender, Steve Coogan and Robert Sheehan among others for “Good Vibrations,” their biopic of Belfast music legend Terri Hooley.

Things, however, have changed a bit since then, particularly for Fassbender who has since established himself as a bonafide tinseltown A-lister, capping it off with his Best Actor victory in Venice for Steve McQueen‘s “Shame.” Either way, it looks likes there’s been a mass exodus from the film’s early line up with Fassbender, Coogan and Sheehan missing from the film’s finalized cast.

As none were slated to play the leading role of Belfast’s godfather of punk, though—that honor goes to Northern Ireland native, Richard Dormer—it seemingly hasn’t affected the production too much, with lensing already under way. It doesn’t exactly bode well for the project if such talent are no longer involved but rounding out the cast (which already included Dormer, Bronagh Gallagher and Liam Cunningham) are renowned Irish comedian Dylan Moran (cult favorite television series “Black Books,” “Shaun of the Dead”), Jodie Whittaker (”Attack the Block”) and Adrian Dunbar (”The Crying Game”).

Scripted by Glenn Patterson and Colin Carberry, “Good Vibrations” follows the story of Hooley as he founded the Good Vibrations record store on Belfast’s Great Victoria Street, from which a record label sprung, with bands like The Moondogs, The Shapes, Protex, The Outcasts and, most notably, The Undertones, whose song “Teenage Kicks” became the all-time favorite song of legendary British radio DJ John Peel, and one of the most seminal tracks of the era.

Soderbergh-regular David Holmes is on board to score with Andrew Eaton and Chris Martin (not that one) producing in conjuction with Canderblinks Film & Music, Revolution Films and Treasure Entertainment. [CineEuropa]
