Killing Bono : The Wake

Last saturday at 5am the final scenes of Killing Bono were captured in Belfast. I certainly didn’t have any official photography role and I am indebted to the various production companies for letting me shoot the scenes in which we were involved.

This is the last photo of the shoot I am putting on site until the film is release sometime early 2011. I haven’t included any of the Young U2 and they are under embargo but I can assure you as a U2 fan in the early days the characters are utterly convincing.

Based on Neil McCormick’s cult book I Was Bono’s Doppelganger and written by Dick Clement & Ian La Frenais (The Commitments), ‘Killing Bono‘ is a rock n’ roll comedy about two Irish brothers struggling to forge their path through the 1980’s music scene…

Whilst the meteoric rise to fame of their old school pals U2 only serves to cast them deeper into the shadows. The film is directed by Nick Hamm whose credits include Martha, Meet Frank, Daniel & Lawrence, as well as The Hole and Godsend.
