Feature Film


A live-action comedy/drama focusing on a trio of close-knit school friends who fall back on the heroic whimsey of their imaginations when faced with the various trials of their looming adulthood. 

Intended as a wholesome and unique coming-of-age tale set squarely in the heartland of Ireland, The Action Heroes is set to be all at the same time irreverent, touching, laugh-out-loud funny and, of course, relatable. 

Cinematic Influences/References: 

Safety Not Guaranteed (2012), Superbad (2007), The Guard (2011)

At present this project is in the scripting phase and in the process of seeking development funding.
