Principal photography has begun on Pixie, a comedic thriller to be directed by Barnaby Thompson (Kevin And Perry Go Large , St. Trinian’s 1&2), which stars Olivia Cooke, Ben Hardy, Daryl McCormack, Colm Meaney and Alec Baldwin.
Pixie (Cooke) wants to avenge her mother’s death by masterminding a heist, but her plans go awry and she finds herself on the run with two young men (Hardy, McCormack) who are way out of their depth being chased across the Wild Irish countryside by gangsters.
She has to pit her wits against everyone, taking on the patriarchy to claim the right to shape her own life.
Barnaby Thompson said: “I am excited to be returning to the Emerald Isle, the birthplace of my father and where I started my career directing documentaries, to make a comedic thriller with a wonderful cast against an extraordinary landscape.
“I’m also thrilled the film is going to be distributed in the UK and Ireland by Paramount, where I started my career producing movies.”
