a Director, and Much More

Another Dublin Murders star, Conleth Hill, is among the impressive cast of Irish talent putting out a film called Here Are the Young Men. Based on the Dublin-set novel of the same name, the film explores the lives of young men in Celtic Tiger Ireland, who party too hard as they try to avoid life’s more adult questions. The film also stars Sing Street actor Ferdia Walsh-Peelo, as well as Peaky Blinders star Finn Cole. Here Are the Young Men will be directed by Dubliner and Renaissance man Eoin Macken, who has written and directed numerous films and starred in the NBC series The Night Shift, the Netflix show Nightflyers, and RTÉ’s Fair City. Oh, and in his spare time, Mackin has worked as a model for Ralph Lauren, GQ, and Abercrombie and Fitch. Look for Here Are the Young Men in late 2020 or early 2021. ♦
