Colin Farrell is teaming up with Lee Magiday and Hopscotch Features on a screen adaptation of Irish crime novel THE RUIN by Dervla McTiernan.

This will be the first project for Farrell’s new production company Chapel Place Productions.

Irish writer Dervla McTiernan’s well-received thriller, set in Galway, follows detective Cormac Reilly as he is thrown back into a case from 20 years before involving two children whose mother died of an overdose. Through the eyes of the detective we see into dark corners of Ireland including police corruption and abuses in the church.

Colin Farrell will play detective Cormac Reilly.

“The Ruin” is Dervla McTiernan’s debut novel and the first in the series of books about Reilly, which means it could be a franchise for the star.

The latest novel in the series, “The Good Turn,” will be published in 2020.
