Universal Pictures Ireland has sent over a new behind-the-scenes video for their forthcoming Irish comedy The Hardy Bucks Movie.
The film is based on the popular RTÉ television show of the same name and sees the lads finally leave Castletown and head out on a wild road trip across Europe.
Eddie Durkan, the self-proclaimed leader of the ‘Bucks is dreading spending another summer bored out of his skull. Ireland has qualified for the Euros in Poland, but with no money and apathetic mates, the task falls to Eddie to get them out of Castletown and onto the road in search of football and the craic. A small inheritance and an old van provide an escape plan, but the trip takes a turn for the worse after an unscheduled stop-off in Amsterdam. To pay off a huge strip club bar bill, two of the boys are forced into becoming drug mules. Suddenly it’s not just about getting to Poland to watch football; they need to get there alive, with the ‘package’, without getting arrested and without being molested by baboons. With mounting pressure from Dutch and Polish gangsters, the last thing Eddie needs is to bump into his arch nemesis ‘The Viper’ along the way…
The Hardy Bucks Movie is unleashed in Ireland on February 22nd.
