Comedy group, Crooked Gentlemen, will begin shooting their new feature film, The Legend of Harry and Ambrose, in September. Principle photography will commence on the anarchic period piece on September 11th this year.
Written, produced and directed by Crooked Gentlemen (Jeff Doyle, Shaun Ryan, Johnny Elliott) the film is said to be a warped examination of Anglo – Irish history. Elliott and Doyle are set to play the two central characters – Harry and Ambrose respectively. Two British red coat soldiers who rape, murder and pillage their way across 17th-century Ireland. Visual artist Shaun Ryan (Limp) will jump into the role of Jimothy Periwinkles, an over-sexed extra terrestrial, which raises questions about the film’s tag line, “A meticulously accurate historical document.”
The film will also star Brian Fortune (Game of Thrones), Stephen Clinch (Love/Hate) and Owen Colgan (Hardy Bucks).
It will will be shot in various locations around Dublin and Wicklow.
