Marcella Plunkett (Stella Days), Padraic Delaney (Raw, The Wind That Shakes the Barley) and newcomer Missy Keating head the cast for Irish/Swedish horror feature film ‘Dark Touch’, currently filming on location in Ireland.
Written and directed by French filmmaker Marina de Van (Don’t Look Back, In My Skin), the project began principal photography in Ireland on February 13th. Production will move to locations in Sweden in early march for a further three week shoot.
‘Dark Touch’ tells the story of an isolated house in the country that takes on a life of its own, taking the lives of the family inside, leaving only a young girl Niamh as the sole survivor. The lead role of Niamh will be played by new Irish actress, 10 year old Missy Keating - daughter of Boyzone singer Ronan Keating and top Irish model Yvonne.
IFTA nominated actress Marcella Plunkett stars in Thaddeus O’Sullivan’s ‘Stella Days’ alongside Amy Huberman and Martin Sheen, released in Irish cinemas shortly, and Delaney will next be seen in Lenny Abrahamson’s ‘What Richard Did’.
Element Pictures are producing with Agat Films/Ex Nihilo and Filmgate Films with backing from Eurimages, the Irish Film Board, Section 481, Film I Väst and Wild Bunch
