From April 24th- 30th 1916, an act of rebellion changed the course of Irish history and
marked the beginning of the decline of the British Empire. When the Easter Rising ended,
the execution of its brave leaders handed the baton to Michael Collins and others to fight
for Irish freedom in the War of Independence.
‘The Rising’ will be the first movie to tell the full story of 1916 and how Ireland rose up
from famine to freedom. It has been in development since 2012 backed by Screen
Ireland, Northern Ireland Screen and a loyal global following. Among the actors attached
in the leading roles are Colin Morgan, Fiona Shaw, Brendan Coyle and David O’Hara.
Micheál Neeson will follow in the footsteps of his father Liam Neeson and portray the
young Michael Collins, who was not a leading figure in the rebellion itself.

GAA DREAM-TEAM JOIN TOGETHER AND SIGN UP FOR MOVIE.
Along with a star-studded cast, the producer Kevin McCann has announced that 15 GAA
All-Ireland winners( the ultimate dream-team) have officially signed up to appear in the
movie in small cameo roles and walk-on parts.
The All-Ireland winners from Gaelic Football, Camogie, Ladies Football and
Hurling include Barney Rock, Brian Mullins, Colm O’Rourke, Jack
O’Shea, Colm Cooper, Larry Tompkins, Dinny Allen, Oisín McConville,
Martin McHugh and his son Mark McHugh, Seán Cavanagh, Valerie Mulcahy,
Ursula Jacob, Joe Connolly and John Kiely.

QUOTES FROM PRODUCER KEVIN MCCANN:
“These GAA heroes are people with a strong connection to the spirit of Ireland and that
is what the movie is all about - the triumph of the Irish spirit, sacrifice and conviction. It is
fitting to announce this as we mark the centenary year of Bloody Sunday at Croke Park.”
“Imagine a movie scene where Patrick Pearse or Tom Clarke address a secret meeting of
leaders played by Jack O’Shea, John Kiely, Valerie Mulcahy and Oisín McConville. The
Irish around the world will grip the seats of the cinema with pride!!
“‘The Rising’ will complete the trilogy of great films on Irish History. It tells what
happened before the movies Michael Collins and The Wind that shakes the Barley. Those
movies were about the War of Independence and the Irish Civil War. They did not
examine Ireland’s first strike, the rebellion at Easter 1916 or celebrate Ireland’s
resurrection from the darkness of the famine years. Our film views the Easter Rising as a
heroic stand against the British Empire that changed Ireland forever. Their sacrifice and
effort must be honoured in a new motion picture”
“Last year, we held a sold-out public showcase of ‘The Rising’ screenplay in Los Angeles
and we have a major finance and producing partner in America who sees strong
commercial potential in this true story of Ireland. Currently, movie investors tend to favour
animation and horror films. In order to get our $10million movie across the line, we
require keen investors connected to Ireland who see value in telling the Irish hero story
to a global audience. Our powerful screenplay will continue to attract talented stars, but
we still face this gap in the budget. We want to encourage any interested parties to step
forward and contact us about investment through our website www.therising.ie. Their
involvement is the key to making this movie happen.”
“The presence of these GAA legends in ‘The Rising’ will honour the memory of Patrick
Pearse, Countess Markievicz, Seán MacDiarmada and the other heroes who resurrected
the Irish spirit. We are all on the same side in respecting the memory of the men and
women of 1916.”
