Irish director Paddy Breathnach (Ailsa, I Went Down, Blow Dry) gets back behind the camera on 25 August on the caper comedy Man About Dog, set in the Irish greyhound racing milieu.

The film will shoot for seven weeks on location in Dublin, Kildare, Wicklow and Belfast.

Written by Pearse Elliott, Man About Dog is backed by the Irish Film Board, Redbus Pictures and the Section 481 Irish tax break. The low budget film is produced by Breathnach's partner in Treasure Entertainment, Rob Walpole, and Simon Channing Williams of Potboiler Films in the UK.

The film will be shot by Breathnach's regular Irish DoP, Cian de Buitlear, and the cast includes Alan Leech, Ciaran Nolan, Tom Murphy, Sean McGinley, Pat Shortt and Fionnuala Flanagan.
