Kilkenny Man set for D’Big-screen

Kilkenny man, John Masterson, Managing Director of PR and Communications agency Purcell Masterson, is set for the big screen this June. John appears briefly in what is set to be one of the Summer’s biggest blockbusters, Brendan O’Carroll’s ‘Mrs. Brown’s Boys D’Movie’.

TV favorite Brendan O’Carroll arrives onto the big screen in ‘Mrs. Brown’s Boys D’Movie’, which follows matriarch Agnes Brown as she fights to keep her market stall up and running when her livelihood comes under threat as a greedy developer tries to close down her stall. Mrs. Brown teams up with her family and a gang of inept professional help fight for the rights of the Moore Street traders.

John Masterson plays the character of Mack, a ninja tasked with assisting Mrs Brown in the fight to keep her market stall up and running. John attended the premiere of D’Movie in Dublin’s Savoy Theatre on Wednesday, June 25th and the film saw more than 70,000 advance tickets sold throughout the UK and Ireland ahead of its release date, Friday June 27th.

Having filmed in locations throughout Dublin in September 2013, John Masterson is among a host of other well-known names such as Joe Duffy, Simon Delaney and Eamon Holmes to star in the film. John produced the original series of Mrs Brown’s Boy’s.

‘Mrs. Brown’s Boys D’Movie’ is a spin-off of the hugely popular BBC series, which won the BAFTA award for Best Situation Comedy in 2012. The hilarious sitcom has built up an army of fans around the world and its Christmas Special last year racked up 9.4 million viewers for BBC 1.
