Irish Eye on Hollywood: Scary Joy for Ciaran Foy

By Tom Deignan, Columnist
January / February 2019

It will certainly be a happy new year for Dublin born director Ciaran Foy. Foy is the director of the upcoming horror film Eli, featuring Lili Taylor and Sadie Sink, as well as Anglo-Irish actress Kelly Reilly, best known for roles in Flight and Calvary. Eli is about a young boy undergoing treatment for a crippling disease at a creepy, isolated clinic. Soon enough, Eli’s suspicions about the clinic’s creepiness are confirmed, and the demons haunting the facility may get to him before his disease does. Look for Eli to be released in early January 2019. Foy is making quite a name for himself in the American horror/supernatural market, having previously directed scary flicks such as Sinister 2 and Citadel. Meanwhile, Kelly Reilly has not only been busy with movies. Look for her once again as the lead female character, Beth Dutton, in the Kevin Costner western series Yellowstone, which will begin its second season on the Paramount Network in mid-2019. ♦
