Former Rebellion star Sarah Greene lands starring role in Roddy Doyle's upcoming film
Rebellion actress Sarah Greene is to star in a new film written by author Roddy Doyle.
The movie, Rosie, is about the housing crisis and focuses on a young family who find themselves homeless after they are evicted from rented accommodation.
Greene will take on the title role, while IFTA-winning actor Moe Dunford will play her partner.
The film will be shot on location in Dublin in the coming weeks.
It is being directed by Paddy Breathnach and produced by Element Pictures, the company behind Room, The Lobster and The Guard.
The last film Doyle wrote was the 2000 comedy, When Brendan Met Trudy.
Greene has spent recent months in Budapest where she was filming season two of US series Ransom.
She plays aspiring investigator Maxine Carlson in the crime drama.
The series was created by Frank Spotnitz, who previously worked on The X-Files.
The series received lukewarm reviews but solid ratings.
Greene (33) also recently starred in Lance Daly's Black 47, a revenge story set during the Great Famine.
The Gaiety School of Acting graduate has also starred in the West End and on Broadway.
Speaking about the unpredictability of the acting profession, she said: "You've no control over this job. When you realise that and let go, you become free."
