The Rising - The Movie


Kevin McCann: Director - The Rising  @1916movie
Portraying the true story of the 1916 Easter Rebellion in Ireland, 'The Rising' will be the prequel to the historic movies 'Michael Collins' starring Liam Neeson and 'The Wind that Shakes the Barley' which won the Palme d'Or at Cannes Film Festival in 2006. It is co-written by James Ragan, who worked in production for Oscar-winning films such as 'The Godfather' and 'The Deer Hunter’

'The Rising’ will be the first motion picture to dramatise the heroic story of the leaders of the secret rebellion that led to Irish Independence.

‘The Rising’ is gathering together one of the most impressive cast lists for an Irish movie including David O’Hara, Fiona Shaw, Colin Morgan and Brendan Coyle. It will also proudly showcase the debut movie performance of Micheál Neeson, in the role of Michael Collins which his father Liam Neeson made famous 20 years ago. Led by the filmmaker Kevin McCann, a professional crew behind the camera will craft a compelling dramatic movie. Supported by the Irish Film Board, Northern Ireland Screen and private equity partners, this film will respectfully remember a great story of Ireland and be an international hit in cinema theatres and across all movie platforms.
