Terry George Film Set For World Premier

Hot off the back of his Oscar win for The Shore it has been announced that Terry George's 'Whole Lotta Sole' will have its world premiere at Robert De Niro's Tribeca Film Festival in April.
Whole Lotta Sole, which filmed on location in Northern Ireland last year, will feature in the Spotlight section of the Festival.
The film received funding from the Northern Ireland Screen Fund supported by Invest NI and part funded by the European Regional Development Fund. It was written by Thomas Gallagher and Terry George and directed by Terry George. It also stars local actor Martin McCann (Killing Bono, The Pacific) , he is joined by Colm Meaney (Intermission, Kings), Yaya Dacosta (The Kids are Alright, Ugly Betty) and David O'Hara (Braveheart, The Departed).
It tells the story of a rowdy little corner of Belfast as a hapless young father Jimbo tries to protect his family from the gangster he’s in debt to by robbing the local fish market… which turns out to be a front for the same gangster!
On the run, Jimbo holes up in a local antique shop run by a long-lost man from his past. A colorful cast of character actors and a strong turn from Brendan Fraser light up this madcap Irish crime comedy.
The 11th Tribeca Film Festival will take place from 18th to 29th April 2012 in lower Manhattan.
