Other Irish stars to look out for this summer are Pierce Brosnan, who will be appearing in the much-anticipated July song-and-dance sequel Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again, alongside Meryl Streep and Colin Firth, as well as show biz legend Cher.  Brosnan recently told GQ magazine: “She was just everything that you could wish for and hope for. The voice, the eyes, the whole kit-and-caboodle of Cher was just beautiful. We had the most glorious time. It was a wonderful reunion for all of us, after 10 years. … It was criminal, how much fun we had.”

Also, there is Chris O’Dowd in the August romantic comedy Juliet, Naked, a love triangle featuring quirky musicians, obsessed music fans, and based on the book by celebrated novelist Nick Hornby (High Fidelity, About a Boy).

Also in August, there’s American-born, Wicklow-reared actor Jack Reynor, in Kin.  This sci-fi thriller looks at two brothers being chased by ruthless criminals, and also stars Dennis Quaid and Carrie Coon.

Later this year, Reynor will also appear in the films Mowgli (based on Rudyard Kipling’s Jungle Book) and On the Basis of Sex, which (despite its spicy title) is a biopic about the life of Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Reynor will also appear in what is currently being described as a “web television series” for CBS entitled Strange Angel. ♦
