Ireland is heading to the silver-screen yet again!
That’s right, following the success of The Banshees of Inisherin and The Quiet Girl, it’s no surprise Hollywood has an interest in Ireland. The latest film from our shore to get given the Hollywood treatment will be Four Letters of Love.

Four Letters of Love tells the story of Nicholas (played by O’Shea) and Isabel (played by Skelly) as two strangers who are destine to meet.
Brosnan will take on the part of Nicholas’ troubled father William, who leaves his job as a Dublin civil servant for the life a painter on an island in the west of Ireland.
Byrne will be playing Isabel’s father, a poet and headmaster at the island’s local school, with Bonham Carter playing his wife.
