Donegal filmmakers are being offered an exciting chance to work on a major film starring Pierce Brosnan next year.
Donegal Daily exclusively revealed that Bond star Pierce Brosnan will be shooting a film in the Dungloe area in February. The multi-million euro movie is an adaption of the novel ‘Four Letters of Love’ by Niall Williams set in Dublin and on an island off the west coast of Ireland.
The beautiful screenplay will be directed by London writer-director Polly Steele.

Donegal, with its rugged landscape and picturesque towns, is fast becoming a top location for filmmakers, thanks to the handful of dedicated staff at Donegal County Council’s Film Office.
‘Four Letters of Love’ is following hot on the heels of Star Wars which was filmed in Inishowen in 2017, God’s Creatures starring Paul Mescal (2021) and In The Land of Saints and Sinners (Liam Neeson) which was shot in south west Donegal earlier this year.
