Amy Adams, the Oscar-nominated star of 'Doubt' and 'Junebug', will begin shooting her new film 'Leap Year' in Ireland at the end of this month.

Directed by Anand Tucker ('And When Did You Last See Your Father?', 'Shopgirl') and co-starring 'Watchmen' star Matthew Goode, 'Leap Year' tells the story of an American woman who comes to Ireland to propose to her boyfriend on 29 February.

She gets lost in the Irish countryside and meets a pub owner (Goode) who agrees to help her find her boyfriend.

The film will be shot in Dublin, the Aran Islands, Connemara and Wicklow.
