29th June 2009 by Maura McHugh

IFTN reports that Dublin production company, Little Bird – which was involved in films such as Bridget Jones Diary and Into the West – has folded with debts of over €3.5 million.

The company that were in the process of producing a film about the life of convicted murder Catherine Nevin went into liquidation after failing to restructure in receivership. Kieran Wallace the receiver is in negotiations with a British film company to sell the on-going productions and back catalogue rights to Irish television series ‘On Home Ground’ and ‘The Irish RM’.

The company which holds offices in Dublin, London and Johannesburg commented: “We made significant losses in movie production and development during the period 2000 to 2004, in recent months a number of challenges – some our own – others not, like the collapse in international equity markets, have made it difficult to refinance Little Bird’s business.”
