Cinema Libre Studio to Release ‘Waiting For Dublin’: Screwball Comedy Starring Andrew Keegan as World War II Flyboy
Film to open on March 13, 2009 in New York, Boston, Chicago for St. Patrick’s Day

LOS ANGELES , CA (February 15, 2009) – Just in time for Saint Patrick’s Day, “WAITING FOR DUBLIN,” a screwball comedy starring Andrew Keegan with Irish stars Hugh O’Conor, Frank Kelley and David Wilmot, will make its way to US theatres. Belgium-based Corsan and Cinema Libre Studio will partner on the theatrical release which begins March 13, 2009 in New York, Chicago and Boston.

Directed by Roger Tucker, “WAITING FOR DUBLIN ” features Andrew Keegan, who starred in: “10 Things I Hate About You” with Heath Ledger and Julia Stiles; “The Broken Hearts Club: A Romantic Comedy” starring Zach Braff, and the modern-day adaptation of Shakespeare’s Othello, “O,” with Mekhi Phifer, Josh Hartnett and Stiles. Keegan gained attention early in his career for his television roles on “Party of Five” and “7th Heaven.” His current film, “Fast Glass,” is in post-production and he has been cast in “The Riot,” an action-thriller set to shoot in Seattle, Washington.

In a Chicago nightclub on New Year’s Eve in 1944, fighter pilot Lt. Mike Clarke (Keegan) meets a stranger, Vito Massucci (Karl Shiels), who bets him that he can’t become a war ace by shooting down at least five enemy aircraft. Upon sobering up and shipping out, Mike realizes that the bet was made in actuality for $10,000 and, that Vito’s uncle – who witnessed the contract — was none other than the notorious Al Capone.

After entering the battle and tallying up some “kills,” Mike must make an emergency landing in a small Irish village with his co-pilot, Twickers (Hugh O’Conor). Short of making good on the bet with Vito, Mike must either find another enemy aircraft to shoot down amongst the neutral and peaceful villagers or suffer the wrath of Vito and Uncle Al.

O’Conor is a veteran film and television actor and played opposite Liam Neeson in “Lamb,” with other film credits including: “My Left Foot,” “The Three Musketeers,” “The Young Poisoner’s Handbook,” “A Film with Me In It,” “Wild Decembers,” and “The Man Inside.” Jade Yourell plays Keegan’s love interest, “Maggie.” Yourell is an Irish-born actress who spent her early career in the theatre where she studied with Ann Kavanaugh’s Young Peoples Theatre in the local town of Galway — where parts of the film were shot. DUBLIN is Yourell’s first feature film.

The film also features robust performances by beloved character actors, Frank Kelly and David Wilmot. Kelly has been acting since 1968 and has played in more than 17 movies including: “The Italian Job” (1969), “Aristocrats” (1999) and “Rat” (2000). David Wilmot is a well-trained actor with a long, impressive list of credits that include: “The Devil’s Own” (1997) starring opposite Harrison Ford and Brad Pitt; “The Field,” “The Treaty,” “Gentleman Caller,” “I Went Down,” “Home for Christmas,” “Intermission” and “Laws of Attraction.”

In 2006, Wilmot won the Theatre World Award and was nominated for a Tony Award for Best Actor for his portrayal of Padraic in “The Lieutenant of Inishmore.” His most recent film is 2008’s “Dorothy Mills.” The film was produced by Paul Breuls and Catherine Vandeleene of Belgium-based Corsan in association with IAC Film, Merlin Films Group & Scion Films with the support of Flanders Audiovisual Fund.

  • It's NOT ALL About You John Michael

    CHICAGO – John Michael epitomizes the art of the monologue.

  • Soccer Player in the Closet, The 2

    CHICAGO – Connecting to the theater collective Nothing Without a Company means a couple of things.

The play runs through March 17th, 2019. Click here for more details, including ticket information.
