No killing time for busy Cil­lian

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

Busy Cil­lian Mur­phy is set to play Richard Neville, the Aus­tralian au­thor of the satir­i­cal coun­ter­cul­ture mag­a­zine Oz, which in 1971 was the sub­ject of the long­est ob­scen­ity trial in English le­gal his­tory. The movie, Hip­pie Hip­pie Shake, has been adapted by Billy El­liott screen­writer Lee Hall from Neville’s mem­oir, and it will be di­rected by Bee­ban Kidron, whose most re­cent film was Brid­get Jones: The Edge of Rea­son. Join­ing Mur­phy in the cast are Si­enna Miller, Max Minghella and Emma Booth. Mur­phy and Miller are also work­ing to­gether on The Edge of Love, which also stars Matthew Rhys (as Dylan Thomas) and Keira Knight­ley, and starts shoot­ing this week.

Mur­phy will be seen next in a ro­man­tic com­edy, Watch­ing the De­tec­tives (pic­tured above), which had its world pre­miere at New York’s Tribeca Film Fes­ti­val last week. He plays a video store man­ager se­duced by a cus­tomer (Lucy Liu).
