Don Cheadle and Brendan Gleeson join The Guard

Don Cheadle heading up for an Irish project with Brendan Gleeson.

doncheadleBrendan Gleeson will star opposite Don Cheadle in The Guard. It tells story of a confrontational small town Sgt. Gerry Boyle, who likes hookers and isn’t interested in drug runners, and FBI Agent Everett in a tale of international coke smuggling. Sounds on the surface like an Irish reversal of Beverly Hills Cop, where the small town local guy is the irreverent jokester while the outsider is terribly straightlaced. John Michael McDonagh writes and directs.

This is almost the perfect casting for the film. Steven Soderbergh had once said that every director should get Don Cheadle on board at least once.

John has a keen sense of what ticks in the world of film. He can also be seen in three distinct short film titled Woken Shell, The Tea Shop in the Moon and The Waiting. Cinema has been the basic diet he has been on for the last 10 years. His personality can be judged by the choices of his films.
