Movie in the Works About a Real Irish Town That Was Overcome With ‘Viagra Love Fumes’

‘Love In Kilnerry’ is based on a real-life dilemma in small Irish town called Ringaskiddy, County Cork.

Apparently, a little while ago, the small village of Ringaskiddy, County Cork had a bit of a problem.  Residents complained that the fumes from the nearby Viagra plant were causing the men and dogs in town to have raging erections. So of course, a comedy is being made about this strange and quite frankly, hilarious happening. The movie is called “Love in Kilnerry” and is a feature comedy from Archway Pictures.

Originally written as a play that takes place in Kilnerry, a fictional town in County Donegal, writer/producer Daniel Keith workshopped it at Manhattan Theatre Club in New York City for a year in front of audiences with various actors. When the decision to turn it into a screenplay was made, it was Americanised to take place in Kilnerry, New Hampshire.

 

The plot line is as follows: Elderly residents of a small remote town panic when the Environmental Protection Agency announces that mandatory changes to their chemical plant could cause an extreme increase in their sexual libido. The town sheriff struggles to maintain order and decency but mayhem ensues.

The screenplay has already won half a dozen awards from various screenwriting and film festivals. The producers are currently shopping the movie with distributors and talking with investors about completing post-production.

“I wanted to make a storybook movie my grandmother or people of all ages would think was funny,” says Daniel Keith. “A story like this has never been done before. We had incredible theatre and film actors that were hysterical. We shot in 500-year-old churches, people’s homes from the 17th century, lobster boats at sea, mountains, cobblestone streets and had hundreds of extras. It’s so beautiful and heartwarming.”

Independent films have been increasing their success rate the past few years as the Asian market allows more and more international films in. And the filmmakers hope this could be a winner too. “I think audiences are getting tired of remakes, sequels, prequels and spin-offs. They’re realising there are thousands of writers out there with very originals ideas and are hungry enough to make big concepts on smaller budgets. “Love In Kilnerry” really has some universal themes about love, sex and getting older that could exist in any culture. It’s been really exciting watching this thing blossom,” said Daniel Keith.
