Gabriel Byrne, Cillian Murphy and Collin Farrell are the stars, still attached to the movie, after they have been announced in the year 2009. Jonathan Rhys-Meyer is the only actor, who left the project.

The story of the movie is about rebelling against the creator, who has created the fictional characters and follows a University student, who writes a novel, which joins with the characters in his own life.

Brendan Gleeson has acquired the rights of the novel seven years ago, which is his passionate project, as it would be his directorial debut too. He also spent four long years on the book to adapt it for the big screen.

The movie ‘At Swim-Two-Birds’ is expected to start its filming by Spring 2012.
