Upcoming football comedy ‘Fran the Man’ seeking film extras from Wicklow

The film, which will soon go into production, is looking for extras from The Garden County.

Fran Costello, the much loved star of mockumentary series ‘Fran’ returns in a feature length comedy. The original show aired on Setanta Sports and TV3 from 2009-2011 to much acclaim. Darragh Humphreys reprises his role from the series, surrounded by an exciting new ensemble cast.

When non-league St Peter’s Celtic are drawn to play titans Shamrock Rovers in the first round of the FAI Cup, assistant manager Fran Costello hopes his team will pull off one of the greatest shocks in football history. But it isn’t long before the sh*t really hits the Fran…

They will be looking for people of all ages, looks, shapes, sizes and backgrounds with no previous experience needed. This will be paid work and filming will take place in the Dublin area in March.

Also as the film is football based they will be searching to cast some young athletic men between the ages of 18-35 with good football, soccer or GAA experience for featured roles.
