Colin Farrell and Claudine Farrell, through their production company Chapel Place Productions, have joined with Lee Magiday (producer of ‘The Favourite’) and Hopscotch Features to bring The Ruin to the screen! I couldn’t be happier or more excited to see my book in the hands of a team this talented, and this committed to making great stories.

Of the announcement, Troy Lum, of Hopscotch, said – “We’re thrilled to be bringing Dervla’s page-turning novel to the screen, and we couldn’t have better partners than Lee, Claudine and Colin. We all responded so strongly to the material, which is driven by a richly authentic protagonist – detective Cormac Reilly – and set in the unique beauty of the west coast of Ireland.”

Lee Magiday added – “I’m excited to be working with Troy and Andrew and teaming up again with Colin and Claudine on such thought-provoking material. The Ruin is a brilliant debut. Dervla has created an atmospheric, resonant and intricately woven story with deeply affecting characters. It offers an intimate and compelling view of Galway, a city driven by its history.”
