Irish Film: Cristina Ryan to lead Daragh Murphy's adaptation of Natasha White’s Camouflage

Star on the rise Cristina Ryan has been chosen to star as Ireland’s first female serial killer in Daragh Murphy’s feature adaptation of Natasha White’s novel Camouflage.

Ryan beat out over 2,500 candidates for the role, which will see her star as Sophie, an attractive Irish girl living an ordinary life but who harbours a dark and murderous soul. Gritty, gory and sexually explicit, Camouflage is described as a modern, cautionary tale for internet dating.

Alongside Ryan, the film will feature Louise Osbourne (The Clinic) and Derek O’Sullivan (A Nightingale Falling) , with a new cast member set to be announced on the books Facebook page on Friday evening at 9pm.

Irish rock band U2 have given permission for 2 of their songs to feature as part of a 14 band soundtrack for the film. Author White is onboard as producer, with Ferdia Mc Anna consulting on the script.

Shooting is due to commence in January, with an Irish cinema release in the summer of 2015.
