Hundreds invited to be in Liam Neeson’s new film in Donegal

Count us in.

Filming has begun on the new action thriller In the Land of Saints and Sinners, and more people than expected are invited to take part.

The film is starring none other than Liam Neeson and is being filmed this March in Killybegs and Glencolmcille, Co. Donegal.

Telling the story of a retired assassin who is then forced to negotiate with three terrorists, the film is looking for people across the country to help out.

Along with the producers of the film, the Donegal Film has issued a call for movie trainees to come along and work on the film.

Producers have sent out a casting call for extras to join the film and are now looking for trainee crew and new entrants to the movie industry to work behind the scenes.

Alongside Liam Neeson, Belfast born actor Ciarán Hinds is also set to appear in the film.

Film trainees must be able to work across all departments for the new film, including production, locations, accounts, camera, art department/props, costume, assistant, directors, sound, as well as hair and make-up.

The positions are paid and those looking to get involved will be given on the job training and mentoring.

Those applying must be able to work full time during late March, April and early May and will need to live in a 45km radius of the production office in Killybegs.

You must be over 18 to apply, have your own transport sources and proof of address.

You must also be legally allowed to work in Ireland and be an EU citizen or have an Irish work permit.

Producers are currently looking for applicants from a diverse age range and from varied backgrounds.
