Mrs Brown's Boys gets a $6m movie deal

By Ken Sweeney

You have had the book, the stage show and the hit sitcom.

Now the cameras will begin rolling on ‘Mrs Brown's Boys The Movie' on Dublin's Moore Street in September next year.

Universal Studios are to finance the project with the working title of ‘Mrs Brown ‘D' with a budget in the region of $6m (£3.6m).

“It's Dublin humour so you're going to need Dublin actors and technicians to get it right for the big screen,” said a spokesman for its creator Brendan O'Carroll.

The comedian was playing the matriarch last week in a new BBC pilot ‘Mrs Brown's Celeb Quiz'.

Similar to ‘Blankety Blank', it features O'Carroll in character quizzing celebrities, which for the pilot included comedian Jason Byrne, astrologer Russell Grant, and footballer Robbie Savage.
