Colin Farrell Launches Production Firm With Movie ‘The Ruin’, Pic In The Works With ‘The Favourite’ Producer & Hopscotch

Exclusive: Colin Farrell is teaming up with producer Lee Magiday (The Favourite) and Hopscotch Features on a screen adaptation of Irish crime novel The Ruin, which marks the first project for Farrell’s new production company Chapel Place Productions.

Irish writer Dervla McTiernan’s well-received thriller, set in Galway, follows detective Cormac Reilly as he is thrown back into a case from 20 years before involving two children whose mother died of an overdose. Through the eyes of the detective we see into dark corners of Ireland including police corruption and abuses in the church.

Film and TV outfit Chapel Place, which Farrell will run with his sister Claudine, is developing and producing the project with Magiday’s fledgling outfit Sleeper Films and Australia’s Hopscotch Features. Cast has yet to be set.

The movie reunites Farrell with former Element Pictures executive Magiday with whom he worked on Yorgos Lanthimos’s The Lobster.
