Brendan Gleeson in "Calvary"

Principal photography has begun on John Michael McDonagh's "Calvary," the follow-up to his 2011 Celtic crime comedy "The Guard," with Brendan Gleeson again starring, but swapping his Irish bad lieutenant Gerry Boyle for a good-hearted priest up against a hostile congregation.

America's current favorite Irish funnyman Chris O'Dowd ("The Sapphires"), Aiden Gillen ("Game of Thrones") and "Flight" redhead Kelly Reilly co-star. The film will shoot on location in Co. Sligo, Ireland.

Official synopsis:

Calvary’s Priest is the flipside to The Guard’s Sergeant Gerry Boyle. A good man intent on making the world a better place, he is continually shocked and saddened by the spiteful and confrontational inhabitants of his small country town. After being threatened during confession, he must battle the dark forces closing in around him.

John Michael McDonagh comes from a talented family; his brother Martin is the playwright-filmmaker of "In Bruges" and "Seven Psychopaths" fame.
