Paisley film hits troubles

The Observer has an interesting piece on the new biopic of Paisley. Seemingly there may not be enough money to fund the project. Gary Mitchell the screenwriter complains that it is difficult to get funding, as “Prods aren’t sexy enough” and also noted that there have been a number of films from Northern Ireland with a nationalist perspective, which have attracted some very famous actors. The script itself has been disowned by the Paisley family and yet also called too pro unionist by others. If the film ever sees the light of day there is little doubt it will stir up even more controversy.

This author has not written a biography and will not be writing one.
