Putting the normal in paranormal. First footage from writer/directors Mike Ahern and Enda Loughman’s supernatural comedy starring comedian/writer/actress Maeve Higgins, Barry Ward, Will Forte and Claudia O’Doherty.
The film, shot last year in Kildare, Tullamore and Wicklow, will have its world premiere at the SXSW Film Festival this weekend on Sunday March 10th, where it has been officially selected for Narrative Spotlight. Check out the first trailer below.
EXTRA ORDINARY tells the story of Rose Dooley (Higgins), a sweet and lonely small town driving instructor who must use her supernatural ‘talent’ to save the daughter of a local man (Ward) from a washed up rock-star (Forte) looking to use her in a satanic pact that will reignite his fame.
The film is produced by Katie Holly (‘Citadel,’ ‘Love & Friendship’), Mary McCarthy (‘Mr Foley,’ ‘Six Shooter’), Yvonne Donohoe and Ailish Bracken (‘The Queen of Ireland’) for Blinder Films, in co-production with Umedia with funding from the Irish Film Board, UMedia and Inevitable Pictures.
EXTRA ORDINARY will be released in Irish cinemas later this year.
