Film Brooklyn is getting a TV spin-off

If you haven’t seen Brooklyn then you are one of the very few in the country. The award winning Irish film has done well not just this side of the water but also in America. Now the film looks set to be getting a TV spin off.

The film based on based on the novel by Colm Tóibín, was a box office hit last year and is the running for three Oscars at the end of the month, including Best Film, Adapted Screenplay and Best Actress for lead Saoirse Ronan.

Finola Dwyer and Amanda Posey of Wildgaze Films have confirmed that a TV spin-off is now in development that would focus on the boarding house run by Mrs Keogh (Julie Walters) in the film, with Walters herself set to return to play the part.

It’s not believed that Ronan will reprise her role due to a busy schedule.
