Having sat on the shelf for four years since its world premiere back in 2018, Blackbird, the self-financed espionage thriller from Lord of the Dance’s Michael Flatley, is finally set for release this September.
The film sees Flatley swapping his dancing shoes for handguns and Bond impersonations as he writes, directors and stars as Victor Blackley, an ex-MI6 operative pulled back in to a world he thought he’d left behind. Check out the trailer below…
An MI6 operative named Victor Blackley turns his back on the agency after his fiancée is killed on a mission gone wrong. Sometime later, he finds himself as the owner of ‘The Blue Moon’, a prestigious hotel in Barbados that acts as a safe haven for international criminals to complete under the table dealings. Though, after years of turning his head to his guest’s business, he is pulled back in to the world he left when a former agent connected to his past turns up as part of a small party, who have come to conduct business on his grounds.
What begins as a chance encounter that reignites an old flame quickly becomes a life or death struggle to save not only those closest to him, but also the potential lives of millions throughout the world.
Joining Michael Flatley in the cast of Blackbird are Eric Roberts, Patrick Bergin, Nicole Evans, and Ian Beattie.
Blackbird arrives in UK cinemas on September 2nd.
