The female-driven comedy The Wedding Invitation, which begins production in Los Angeles in September, has attached Irish star Eoin Macken.

“Eoin Macken is our next George Clooney. He jumps through the screen out at you,” says writer-director Rainy Kerwin.

Macken amassed a huge following while on the hit BBC series Merlin and currently plays Dr. T.C. Callahan in NBC’s The Night Shift, which was just picked up for a second season. But his talents are many. “Eoin is more than just an actor,” Kerwin says. “Eoin gets the independent film scene.” He’s a writer, director, producer and cinematographer whose films have been screened in numerous festivals.

“I’m really excited to be working on a project that champions women,” Macken says. “It’s a great script and I’m looking forward to working with Rainy and this talented crew.”

In The Wedding Invitation, Eoin (pronounced Owen) will be surrounded be a sea of women. Why is that? Because Kerwin and her producing partner Narmar Hanna are looking to change the landscape for women working in Hollywood. They will shoot the film with an entirely female crew.

Their production company, It’s Raining Films, seeks to entertain, inspire and empower women. And it goes beyond the big screen. It’s Raining Films will donate 5% of the profits from the film to 10 women’s charities and organizations, including Glam-a-thon, Glaad, Women In Film, and Women Empowered.

Slated for a 2015 release, The Wedding Invitation is already generating a lot of buzz. The producers have been written up in Gorilla Filmmaking Magazine, Max It Magazine and Indie Reign Magazine, and were interviewed on The Cutting Room Floor podcast as well as in Jennifer Dean’s upcoming documentary about female filmmakers.

Kerwin, Hanna and co-producer Sage Scroope plan to roll out the film with a massive social media campaign. “It’s our strength,” Hanna says. “We funded this film through social media and we plan on marketing it through social media.” And with an abundant target audience of women in their 20’s, 30’s & 40’s, these lady producers are confident that The Wedding Invitation will do big numbers.

The beautiful and hilarious Chasty Ballesteros (The Newsroom, Think Like a Man Too) has been cast in the role of Nectar. Other actors attached to this ensemble comedy include Nick George (Saving Lincoln) and Alex Sanborn (Love in the Time of Monsters). And Kerwin herself is attached as the smartass best friend. “We’re still casting for our Female Lead,” says Hanna. “We really want somebody who can be a team player, who’s funny, and who wants to inspire women. Luckily we’ve already found that in Eoin. He gets it.”
