Director Tom Ryan’s second feature Twice Shy goes into principal photography on June 15th 2015, with filming set for locations in Ireland and the UK.
Twice Shy is a modern coming-of age-drama, that centres around a young couple who set off on a road trip from Ireland to London as the result of an unplanned pregnancy.
Twice Shy will be director Tom Ryan’s second feature, which he makes after the success of his award-winning debut film Trampoline. Tom has teamed up with London-based TV producer Fionn Greger to produce it. The two first worked together in London on short films and TV commercials.
Shane Murray Corcoran (King Arthur, Angelas Ashes) will play the lead character of ‘Andy O Meara’, who’s girlfriend, ‘Maggie Collins’, played by rising star Iseult Casey, surprises him with the news that she is unexpectedly pregnant. The young unmarried couple from Tipperary have some life changing decisions to make and the film portrays their journey, through the ups and downs of their relationship, in a light-hearted drama. They will be joined by a heavy weight supporting cast, details to follow shortly.
Twice Shy is an independent Irish feature film and will hit the festival circuit in Spring 2016.
