Irish actors Colin Farrell and Cillian Murphy are to star together in a new movie, 'Intermission'.

According to The Ticket, the film is a black comedy set in the suburbs of Dublin.

'Intermission' will be directed by John Crowley, who recently helmed 'Come and Go' in the Beckett on Film season.

The screenplay for 'Intermission' is by Mark O'Rowe, who received rave reviews for his play 'Made in China' last year.

Filming had been due to start in May but was put back to accommodate the shooting schedule for Farrell's latest movie 'Daredevil'.

Shooting on 'Intermission' will now begin in July.

Farrell will be seen on Irish screens alongside Bruce Willis next month, when the wartime drama 'Hart's War' opens on 24 May.

Murphy, who recently starred in the big screen adaptation of 'Disco Pigs', will have his latest movie, the post-apocalyptic thriller '28 Days Later', released this Autumn.
