The revolution will not be televised...

Once Upon A Time In The Glorious Revolution is a short western set in the bloody days of late 17th century Ireland. It was written and directed by Sean Clancy, a director who seems to be able to do anything and everything. Even make the tea. And a fine brew it was.

I got to spend some wet and wild, midge infested days in County Leitrim. And if any county in Ireland lends itself to a western, it's Leitrim. Mountains, lakes and valleys up the jacksie. I was a lucky man to play a part in it, along with my old Vultures mucker Pete McGann. And there's nothing a lad likes better than running around fields and mountains firing guns and jumping in ditches.

The final version is being cut and readied by Sean at the moment. But in the meantime I got my paws on a couple of stills:

It's still in the edit at the moment but from what I can gather there's a screening in Galway in the next month and from there, I'm not too sure. But I'll keep all news up to date!

Sean's entered it into a couple of festivals, so we'll see how it goes from there! I've seen the final cut, it's as lean and brutal and as down and dirty as it looks, with some cracking sequences. The final shootout is a tour de force and Morton is the closest thing to an Irish action hero we have, haha! Aside from Neeson, obviously...... Bodes well for Hellfire
