Michael Flatley to Star in Spy Thriller – ‘Something I’ve Always Wanted to Do’

Michael Flatley said he was “excited” to bring his first feature film, Blackbird, to cinemas across Ireland.

The Lord of the Dance star will portray the role of Victor Blackley, a former MI6 agent who is drawn back into the world he left when an agent connected to his past shows up to his Barbados headquarters .

The official trailer and poster of the highly anticipated spy thriller, which hits Irish cinemas on Friday 2nd September, has been released.

Flatley said many scenes were filmed in Ireland as well as the UK and Barbados.

“The pandemic has caused many unprecedented production delays, but we’re finally here. As well as filming on location in Barbados and the UK, we also shot a lot of scenes in Ireland so premiering here was always the first choice. There’s nothing more breathtaking than the Irish countryside,” he said.

“On set I was surrounded by amazing talent like Eric Roberts, Ian Beattie, Patrick Bergin, Nicole Evans and Mary Louise Kelly.

“Sinéad O’Connor, who recorded the most beautiful track for the outro, is truly one of Ireland’s treasures.”

Flatley said it was a very personal project for him and something his mother always encouraged him to do.

“Thank you to the entire cast and crew for their dedication to the project and to all of our partners who are bringing the film to theatrical audiences,” he said.

“We all put a lot into this project and for me it is very personal. This was a new venture for me professionally and something I’ve always wanted to do.

“My mother always encouraged me to pursue this dream during my lifetime. Unfortunately she will never see it, but I know that she takes care of me. I’ve had great support from the industry, particularly in Ireland, and it was very rewarding to win Best Actor at the Monaco Film Festival.”

The film had its world premiere at the Monaco Film Festival, where Flatley received the Best Actor award for his role.

The thriller also stars a number of familiar faces including Eric Roberts, Patrick Bergin, Nicole Evans and Ian Beattie.

Special charity premieres of the film will be announced shortly before the release date.

Blackbird was produced by Glen Kirby and Jed Tune for Dancelord Pictures and West One Entertainment and co-produced by Five Knight Films and Parachute Film Studios.
