Casting News: Kelly Reilly cast in McDonagh's 'Calvary'

Deadline reports that Protagonist Pictures has taken on international sales for Reprisal Films’ Calvary from The Guard director John Michael McDonagh. McDonagh also wrote the screenplay for the blackly comic drama about a good priest tormented by his community. The director reteams here with his Guard star Brendan Gleeson along with Chris O’Dowd (Bridesmaids), Kelly Reilly (Sherlock Holmes) and Aidan Gillen (Shadow Dancer). Chris Clark and Flora Fernandez Marengo of Reprisal are producing. Elizabeth Eves will serve as co-producer. The film is slated to shoot from late summer this year. McDonagh is nominated for a BAFTA award this Sunday for his Guard screenplay.

Kelly Reilly was last seen on the big screen in the box-office hit Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows with Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law.  She is currently seen on TV in the UK in ITV's Above Suspicion: Silent Scream (TV series) as DI Anna Travis. She has two new films coming up either sometime later this year or next year (no confirmed theatrical release dates for either), Edwin Boyd with Scott Speedman and Flight with Denzel Washington.
