It was secretly shot at Ardmore Studios in Bray, Co Wicklow, in recent weeks, and the stars of Irish film and television will gather to watch a trailer for it at the National Convention Centre this Saturday, during the industry's annual awards ceremony.

There's only one catch with the new Irish film 'Confused': it doesn't exist. Some of the country's top acting talent have collaborated on a spoof trailer as a comedy opener for this year's Irish Film and Television Awards (the IFTAs).

"It's a crazy movie trailer for a stupid film that doesn't know what it's about," comedy actor Chris O'Dowd said.

The slick trailer features a confusing series of chase sequences, confrontations, and flashbacks for a nonsensical plotline. IFTAs' host Simon Delaney asked Mr O'Dowd to be involved after recently playing a part in Mr O'Dowd's new comedy 'Moone Boy' .

"Simon's in my show so I felt like whatever he asked me to do, I had to do it," said Mr O'Dowd, who is nominated in three categories at the awards.

The 32-year-old has revealed that US network NBC may not go ahead with a series he penned about an male weight loss group called 'Big Men'. He said he was busy with other filming and writing a second season of 'Moone Boy'.
