Ciarán has been nominated in the Best Actor in a Lead Role Film Category for his part in Stephen Brown’s The Sea, against two members of the Gleeson family, while Sinéad Cusack has been nominated in Best Supporting Actress Film Category for The Sea as well.
The Sea has been nominated in the Film of The Year and Best script Film categories.
The Awards will take place on April 5. Fingers crossed!
Ciarán joins the cast of Agent 47, currently filming in Berlin.
Directed by Aleksander Bach, it is Fox International’s sequel to the 2007 action movie Hitman, inspired by a video game. It is the story of a genetically engineered assassin, whose strength, speed, and intellect are above the human norm.
Ciarán’s role has not been disclosed yet. Let’s guess it will not be very romantic…
Ciarán has landed a part alongside Ewan McGregor, Tye Sheridan, and Ayelet Zurer in a new indie drama directed by Rodrigo Garcia, Last Days In The Desert, an intriguing story that will find McGregor playing dual roles, a holy man and a demon, on a journey through the desert as “an encounter with a family struggling to survive in this harsh environment forces the holy man to confront his own fate.” Production will begin in early February in the Southern California desert.
Ciarán will portray the father of Sheridan’s character.
The project handled internationally by HanWay Films, will be launched at Berlin’s European Film Market.
Thanks to Conor MCPherson bittersweet writing, one can’t help liking this menagerie of underachievers, even care about them.
Ciarán will make a short appearance alongside Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt, in this upcoming British/American science-fiction based on the Japanese light novel All You Need Is Kill by Hiroshi Sakurazaka.
