Author Rob Doyle:
“Eoin Macken and I have written a screenplay of my novel ‘Here Are The Young Men’. It’s blindingly good (I’m allowed to say that because most of it is down to Eoin). There’s a production company and a great crew on the case, so hopefully the film will be made later in the year, if we are able to get funding.”.

Eoin told the Irish Daily Mirror: “I had an embarrassing moment on Resident Evil about three months ago when I didn’t even realise I had lines.
“I turned up on set and it was a scene with me, Milla Jovovich and Ali Larter and I thought I had none. I rocked up thinking ‘This is great, I don’t have to anything today but be in the background.’
“We stood there for a read through and Milla said her lines and I was just looking around me and everything went silent with everyone staring at me. There was a whole page I didn’t know about.”

He revealed: “I’m having a great time – I get to jump on helicopters and ride motorbikes and say medical stuff.”
On Paddy’s in the boot:
“What we’re doing now is we’re going to take it and do a stage play version of it. We’re going to start in Ireland with it.”

Eoin plays Doc in the flick, which also stars Milla Jovovich along with Orange is the New Black star Ruby Rose and Ali Larter.

While he’s based in LA at the moment, Eoin (32) is hoping to return to Ireland with fellow actor Kevin Ryan to put on a play of their new short film Paddy’s in the Boot.
“We’re going to do a stage version of it during the summer, we’re looking at theatres now,” Kevin said. “The reason we want to do it is because our characters in this are really fascinating and we’re not finished with them yet.”
The pair worked together on the final Resident Evil movie. “Milla is awesome, she has a wicked sense of humour. The movie is very fast paced and it’s very gritty. I get a lot of action scenes, I’ve a lot of scenes in it with Ali Larter and Milla. I struggled to keep up with her sometimes.”
Although his first novel, Kingdom of Scars was a success, Eoin admitted he’s not sure if it will ever get the big screen treatment.
“I don’t know if it will ever be made into a movie. I’ve adapted a book called Here Are The Young Men into a film, a guy called Rob Doyle wrote it so I’ve decided to do that first.”
The Dublin native worked alongside fellow Irish actor Kevin Ryan for Paddy’s In The Boot and the pair have plans to bring the flick to the stage. “We made this story into a short but we’re actually going to be making it into a play.”
