Watch an exclusive trailer from the highly anticipated Hardy Bucks Movie on RTÉ TEN and find out what star Eddie Durkan had to say about their big screen debut.
Speaking about making the movie, the self-proclaimed leader of the ‘Bucks, told RTÉ TEN that it was a no-brainer for his gang of lads. He said: “If Danny Dyer can make movies then The Hardy Bucks can make movies. It is as simple as that.”
The movie was filmed over the summer during the Euros and followed Eddie and the ‘Bucks as they made the journey to Poland in a caravan. Eddie revealed: “It wouldn’t have been the most luxurious exodus now in fairness. There was a bit of help from my Uncle Mick and we used a Toyota Hiace. She was on her last legs; she was about to calf.”

He added: “It was very cramped. We furnished it with hay and straw just to throw the lads in the back. It was like what the old fella did in London in the 60s. It was no different.
"Sure people are spoilt these days with mod-cons like plumbing and electricity and beds and stuff, you know. We were just living the good life on the road. Real men, farting in the van.”
Speaking about old foe The Viper, who the ‘Bucks met on their travels, Eddie said: “Funny how you get on with people when you are outside the town like, you know.
“I have often said in the past he is reptilian in his movements. He has the mind of a Komodo dragon: he will bite you and come back later on when you are infected to finish you off. He is sly. Slimey, sneaky b*****d so he is.
“But we had to get on. And as bad as he is, Mayo men, you stick together when you are abroad, you know. As my mother would say, you stick together like sh*t to a blanket."
And when Eddie was asked how he would describe their onscreen adventure to fans, he said: "It would be more American Pie than [Life of] Pi, however you are going to have a good ol' time watching it."
The Hardy Bucks Movie is out on February 22. You can watch the trailer by clicking the link on your left.
