Robert de Hoog to Star in Brendan Muldowney's 'Love Eternal'
Movie based on the Japanese novel "Loving the Dead" by Kei Oishi.
LONDON – Robert de Hoog, nominated for a best actor international Emmy for his turn in Skin, has signed to star in Love Eternal, directed and written by Brendan Muldowney.
Muldowney, whose debut pic Savage, scored eight nominations for the Irish Film and Television Academy awards earlier this year, has also secured the acting chops of Pollyanna McIntosh, the star of The Woman which unspooled during the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, Amanda Ryan (Jude) and Declan Conlon (Hereafter).
The project is an Irish co-production to be made by Irish banner Fastnet Films in co-production with Red Lion, Rinkel Films and T.O. Entertainment, Inc.
The project has been set up hot on the heels of the recent Irish Luxembourg co-production treaty signed during the Galway Film Festival this year.
Based on the Japanese novel Loving the Dead written by Kei Oishi, the film centers on a damaged young man who after shutting himself away for 10 years is forced to venture out into a world that he no longer understands.
The Irish/Luxembourg/Dutch/Japanese coproduction is bankrolled by a tapestry of funders including the Irish Film Board, Film Fund Luxembourg, the Netherlands Film Fund, T.O. Entertainment, Inc and Atlantic Screen Music Ltd.
Producers are Conor Barry, Morgan Bushe and Macdara Kelleher for Fastnet Films, Jeanne Geiben and Pol Cruchten for Red Lion, Reinier Selen for Rinkel Film and Ray Kamiya and Lindsey Newman for T.O. Entertainment, Inc.
