Loach may linger af­ter all

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - NEWS - dclarke@irish­times.com

It seems that, like David Bowie and Frank Si­na­tra, Ken Loach may have been a bit for­ward in in­ti­mat­ing re­tire­ment. Re­becca O’Brien, Loach’s long­time pro­ducer, had pre­vi­ously sug­gested that Jimmy’s Hall, which pre­mieres at Cannes next week, would be the great man’s last film.

Loach told the Hol­ly­wood Re­porter last week that the re­port emerged dur­ing a par­tic­u­larly stress­ful stretch on the Ir­ish film. “Hav­ing come out the other side, while I’m not sure we’ll get an­other of that size away, we’ll at least get a lit­tle film to­gether of some sort,” he said.

Hooray! The ravens have not yet left the tower.
