Michael Fassbender, Steve Coogan, and Robert Sheehan to Star in GOOD VIBRATIONS

Michael Fassbender is becoming ubiquitous so thank goodness he’s an incredible actor.  Last month, Fassbender signed on to star in Good Vibrations, which is a biopic about Belfast punk rock legend Terri Hooley. Today, ScreenDaily is reporting that Richard Dormer (Five Minutes of Heaven) will play Hooley while Steve Coogan, Bronagh Gallagher (Tamara Drewe) and Robert Sheehan will co-star.  You’re probably aware of Coogan at this point, but you need to put Sheehan on your radar.  He’s a strong dramatic presence in the Red Riding Trilogy but does a complete 180 to play the scene-stealing jackass Nathan on the British series Misfits.  There was word last month that Fassbender’s Hunger co-star Liam Cunningham would also be in the film, but ScreenDaily makes no mention of him.

The film also has a strong presence behind the camera as Glenn Leyburn and Lisa Barros D’Sa (Cherrybomb, which also starred Sheehan as well as Rupert Grint) are directing from a script by Glenn Patterson and Colin Carberry.  Ocean’s Eleven composer David Holmes will produce and provide the score.  Filming is set to begin this summer.
