Back to Noir

Good to see Ireland's Cultural Ambassador Gabriel Byrne back in front of a movie camera. He has just started a six-week shoot, initially in London, on I, Anna. The film is an adaptation of Elsa Lewin's novel of the same name, a story about a femme fatale who falls for the detective in charge of a murder case in which she is the main suspect.

Charlotte Rampling is Byrne's co-star in the film which is written and directed by Barnaby Southcombe. Other cast includes Eddie Marsan, Jodhi May, Bill Milner and Honor Blackman. I, Anna is a co-production between Britain, France and Germany where the last week's shoot will take place in a Hamburg studio.

Byrne is also among the starry Irish cast lined up for Brendan Gleeson's At Swim Two Birds adaptation which, it's safe to assume, will not start shooting until late March or April at the earliest.
