Irish Movie Production back in full swing...

Ireland's movie industry kicked off again yesterday after a slow period towards the end of last year with a number of big Hollywood stars.

Chasing the Dragon, The Veronica Guerin story started shooting yesterday in Drumcondra with the Oscar winning actress Cate Blanchett in the lead role. Filming will go on until the end of May.

Also, Irish comedian Dylan Moran of Black Books sitcom fame also started filming this week with the legendary actor Michael Caine on the new Neil Jordan movie The Actors.

Jordan has however taken a back seat for the new Hollywood and has handed the Directors job over to the young playwright Connor McPherson, who has also wrote the screenplay for the movie.

This is McPherson's third film while it is Caine's 126th film.

Acting with Caine and Dylan will be Miranda Richardson and maybe even Gabriel Byrne. The film will be made in Ardmore Studios at a cost of 6.3 million euro and will be produced by Jordan, who has also put Caine up at the new apartment block down the road from his own home in Dalkey.

The Actors will put Caine back working with Jordan's film firm The Company of Wolves Production Company for the first time since the 1986 movie Mona Lisa. The Actors tells the story of a struggling Irish actor who uses his skill to get a friend out of trouble with a gangster. As things go wrong the actor has to play more and more roles to cover things up.

Another Irish movie, which got its first screening last night, was Patrick Bergin's new movie, Some other Place.

The movie was shown to a VIP audience in Dublin's IFC where Bergin made a guest appearance.

Other stars who have been floating around Dublin over the past few days include Pop Idol Will Young who made it to number one in the UK yesterday with his first single Evergreen.

He spent last week in Dublin Windmill Lane studious recording his album.

While the eighties Pop princess Kim Wilde flew into Dublin on Friday to promote Spar national tree week.
