Cineuropa reports that Michael Fassbender (‘X-Men: First Class’) is set to star in ‘Good Vibrations,’ a biopic based on the true story of Belfast punk impresario Terri Hooley.
Joining Fassbender, in a supporting role, will be his ‘Hunger’ co-star Liam Cunningham. Richard Dormer (‘Five Minutes of Heaven’) is expected to play the role of Hooley. The movie will be directed by husband and wife team Glenn Leyburn and Lisa Barros D’Sa, the pair previously directed the coming-of-age tale ‘Cherrybomb’ starring Rupert Grint.
The Belfast Telegraph goes on to report that Northern Irish DJ, musician and composer David Holmes (‘Ocean’s Eleven,’ ‘Hunger’) is to score the movie. The movie is set to start shooting in and around Belfast in the coming months.
Terri Hooley founded the Good Vibrations record store which later went on to evolve into a music label which sprung and represented bands like The Undertones, The Shapes, The Outcasts and The Moondogs.
