We have obtained the exclusive rights to adapt Enda Walsh's How These Desperate Men Talk into a short film. We staged a street theatre performance of the script as part of Belfast Culture Night in 2015, and have been working on adapting the script for screen ever since. Now, with the permission of Enda Walsh we are finally going ahead. Although we have all worked on many films in the past, this will be the first film made under the Pan Narrans name, and we are very excited!

Enda Walsh’s other work includes the screenplay for Hunger (2008), the stage adaptation of Once (2011), and countless award winning theatre productions in both the UK and Ireland. This is an incredible opportunity for a young Belfast company, and we want to make the most of it.

The film is currently in pre-production, and we are looking for funding. If you would like to help out in any way, please contact us here.
