A corpse and a wedding will be the unlikely match in Maurice O’Carroll’s new feature film Dead Along The Way, which will be filmed in Laois and Dublin.
Cameras will start rolling next week on what is described as the producers as a gritty crime comedy that takes no prisoners. The comedy follows the antics of two wedding videographers who are desperately trying to hide a corpse before a wedding.
Maurice is producing this with his wife Elaine O’ Carroll and the filmmaking duo have teamed up with Cork born actor/producer Sinéad O’Riordan (Stolen, Coming Out, The Bible Basher) from ORion Productions.
The cast includes a mix of established and emerging talent and will include Game of Thrones actor Ciarán Bermingham, who played Mord in the phenomenally successful HBO series. It will also feature ‘Nidges dad’ in the form of character actor Tom Lawlor, who is father of famed Love/Hate star Tom Vaughan Lawlor. Tom snr also appeared in Love/Hate as a priest. Drogheda born Niall Murphy (Dracula Untold) will take on his first feature film leading role in the character of Whacker McGrath.
The movie will be a first feature-length drama for the award-winning Kerry filmmaker Maurice, who is originally from Tralee and now lives in Laois. He has chosen a range of locations in Laois and Dublin for the film shoot.
