Gleeson, O’Dowd Join McDonagh’s “Cavalry”

Brendan Gleeson, Chris O’Dowd, Kelly Reilly and Aidan Gillen are all set to join Protagonist Pictures’ “Cavalry”, the second film from John Michael McDonagh following last year’s debut effort “The Guard” says The Hollywood Reporter.

The blackly comic drama details the story of a good priest (Gleeson) intent on making the world a better place who is saddened by the spiteful and confrontational inhabitants of his small country town.

Chris Clark and Flora Fernandez-Marengo are producing while much of the crew that worked on “The Guard” is reuniting for this. Shooting kicks off late Summer.
