New Irish thriller ‘Traders’ released on Friday March 11th

New Irish thriller Traders will be released in Irish cinemas this Friday March 11th. Traders is written and directed by Rachael Moriarty & Peter Murphy and stars Killian Scott (Love/Hate, Calvary, ’71), John Bradley (Game of Thrones, Shameless), Nika McGuigan (The Secret Scripture, Mammal), Peter O’Meara ( Love/Hate, Charlie) & Barry Keoghan (’71, Mammal).

Traders tells the story of Harry Fox (Scott) who seems to have it all – the luxury apartment, the fancy car – but when the company he works for goes bust, it looks like he will lose everything. A solution is offered by Vernon Stynes (Bradley) who has masterminded a diabolical, all-or-nothing scheme based in the Deep Web, called ‘Trading’. Two strangers empty their banks accounts, sell their assets, put their entire worth in cash into a green sports bag. They travel to a remote location and fight to the death. Winner buries the loser and walks away twice as rich. Vernon believes trading is a no-brainer for anyone who wants to get rich quick. Can Harry resist the lure of a such a high risk gamble? It’s dangerous, it’s illegal, but it could solve all his problems.

Financed by Bord Scannán na hÉireann/the Irish Film Board, Traders was produced by Coco’s Stuart Switzer (Elisa Lynch: Queen of Paraguay, 1916: The Irish Rebellion) with Libby Durdy (The Stone Roses: Made of Stone, This is England ’88) and Rachel Lysaght (One Million Dubliners). Distributed by Element Pictures Distribution.

Traders can be seen from Friday March 11th in: Light House Cinema, Odean Cinemas, I.M.C. Cinemas, Omniplex Cinemas, Cineworld, Vue Cinema, Movies @ Dundrum, Movies @ Swords, Eye Cinema Galway, Gate Cinema Cork, Reel Picture Ballincollig, Century Letterkenny and Cineplex Roscommon.
