Six times Oscar nominated director (for the films “In America”, “My Left Foot” and “In The Name Of The Father”) Jim Sheridan and awarded documentary filmmaker Colm Quinn will shoot a documentary about Phil Lynott titled “The Rocker: The Life And Music Of Phil Lynott” and they are looking for an actor who will lead. “Having known Phil, and loving his music from the very start, it’s a great honour to celebrate his life and work on the big screen”, says Sheridan. “I see this as a non fiction movie, one meant for the cinema, and I can’t wait to start the process of finding our modern day Rocker”, he concludes. The open casting will be held at Bow Street, 12-13 Bow St., Dublin 7 on Saturday, May 27th from 12.30 PM. Filming for the documentary will take place on various dates throughout 2017. Experience in film and television is not essential. Please come prepared with a song, poem or example of Phil’s influence on you. Auditions will be filmed and may form part of the final film. There is no need to register. Read more here
