Harry to roll out the red carpet for Larry
June 02, 2012
U2 are to be the special guests at the Irish premiere of Larry Mullen's screen debut later this year.
That's according to Harry Crosbie, who will be hosting the major red carpet event at his new €6m state-of-the-art Odeon cinema at The Point Village in Dublin.
"Red carpet, smoke and supertrooper lights shining down from all the buildings. Larry has done me lots of favours over the years so I'm happy to do this for him," Harry told me this week.
In a remake of Patrice Leconte's 2002 French drama Man on the Train, the 50-year-old drummer takes over the role of a sombre hoodlum in the film, previously played by French pop star Johnny Hallyday, who arriving in a small town, starts to envy the life of an elderly teacher with whom he becomes friends.
Harry says that he expects a visit from Larry any day now to finalise a date for the gala screening.
Meanwhile, U2 are working on a new album between their studio, next to Harry's home in Dublin docklands, and their houses.
Expect the aftershow in Cafe H, the nearby restaurant owned by Harry's wife Rita which has been thriving next to the Bord Gais Theatre.
