Colin Morgan to star as Irish freedom fighter Sean McDiarmada

Kevin McCann will direct The Rising and is targeting a 2016 release to mark the centenary of The Easter Rebellion, when Irish Republican Brotherhood members clashed with British occupying forces in Dublin.

The 1916 insurrection was suppressed after six days but revived secessionism and returned it to the forefront of Irish politics.

McCann co-wrote the screenplay with Colin Broderick, which will star Morgan as Irish freedom fighter Sean McDermott and predates events in the films Michael Collins and The Wind That Shakes The Barley.
