Black Ice, the new action-thriller directed by Johnny Gogan and starring Love/Hate actor Killian Scott and newcomer Jane McGrath, will be released on Friday September 20.

The film, written by Gogan and Brian Leyden, will screen at the Galway Film Fleadh this weekend and received its world premiere at the Jameson Dublin International Film Festival in February.

Set in Donegal at the time of the economic crash and shot in Sligo and Leitrim, Black Ice tells the story of clandestine road racer Jimmy Devlin (Scott), his relationship with girlfriend Alice Watters (McGrath) and his desire to become a rally driver.

The film's title track, performed by Sligo rapper Myster E and Sarah Crummy and written by Gogan and Myster E, will be released as a single in Ireland on July 29.

Director and producer Gogan said: "It's very fitting that Black Ice should be screened at the prestigious Galway Film Fleadh, given that the film was produced under the auspices of Studio North West, a hugely vibrant and creative filmmaking community in the north-west of the country.

"Their involvement and that of the region's car community was decisive in the successful realisation of a film with so much action and high production values.

"We're really looking forward to screening the film at the Fleadh, and to the release of the film on September 20. All of our cast and dedicated crew worked tirelessly on the project, so to see the final result on the big screen, and to have the appreciation of an audience, is really important."
