Meaney has appeared in dozens of high-profile films and series over the past forty-plus years but is best known as Star Trek’s Chief Miles O’Brien in “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine” and “Star Trek: The Next Generation.” Gillen boasts a similarly impressive resume, with his most memorable turns coming in HBO’s “Game of Thrones” and “The Wire.” 

Sheridan said of the newly-announced castings, “I am delighted to have two icons of Irish cinema join the cast.”

“Re-creation” co-writer and co-director David Merriman added, “Colm and Aidan both have starred in some of my favorite films and shows. As artists, they both elevate any project, and we are so grateful to have them onboard.” 

“Re-creation” looks back at one of the most famous murders in Irish history. On December 20, 1996, Sophie Toscan du Plantier, a successful film and TV producer, was killed while on holiday at her vacation home on the island. Initial investigations yielded no evidence or leads, yet Ian Bailey, a local man, was accused of the crime anyway. The court of public opinion shifted as a speculative narrative began to form around the case.

Inspired by Sydney Lumet’s classic 12 Angry Men, “Re-creation” will question the reality of what happened nearly 30 years ago as a jury debates the real-life facts of the case. Examining truth and bias and how narrative shapes our worldview, the film aims to demonstrate why nobody was ever convicted or punished for Toscan du Plantier’s murder.

“Re-creation” is produced by Tina O’Reilly of Hell’s Kitchen in Ireland and Fabrizio Maltese of Luxembourg’s Joli Rideau Media with backing from Screen Ireland, Film Fund Luxembourg, Eurimages and the Doha Film Institute. Sheridan is the executive producer. Documentary segments are being shot in Ireland, France, and the U.S., while the fictional sequences will be filmed on a sound stage in Luxembourg. 

Latido Films is handling international sales and shopping the film to interested distributors at this year’s Marché du Film. “Re-creation” will be ready for distribution by Q3 of this year.
