Mrs Browns Boys is bringing out a film, Mrs Brown D’Movie!

by Anna Howell

Fans of the hit BBC comedy, Mrs Browns Boys, will be pleased to know that the shows main star, and creator, Brendan O’Carroll has confirmed that there will be a film version of the show made next year!

Mrs Browns Boys took the country by storm when it hit our BBC screens back in 2011 after it had enjoyed a successful series of six thirty-minute episodes on Irish network, RTÉ

Mrs Browns Boys tells the story of an Irish family headed by a strong, foul mouthed matriarch, Mrs Brown, filmed live on stage in front of an audience with often many mistakes or slip ups being left in for extra giggles!

O’Carroll stars as the now iconic Irish housewife, Mrs Brown, with a supporting cast of mainly friends and family – Mrs Brown’s daughter Cathy is played by O’Carroll’s real life wife, Jennifer Gibney, Mrs Browns best friend and neighbour, Winnie is played by O’Carroll’s real life sister, Eilish O’Carroll. Family friend Buster Brady is played by O’Carroll’s son, Danny O’Carroll and his best friend Paddy Houlihan plays Mrs Brown’s son Dermot. Mrs Brown’s daughters in law are played by O’Carroll’s daughter Fiona O’Carroll (Maria) and real life daughter-in-law, Danny’s wife Amanda Woods (Betty). Mrs Brown’s religious son, Trevor is played by O’Carroll’s real life son-in-law, Fiona’s husband Martin Delany and finally Winnie’s daughter, Sharon, is played by O’Carroll’s real life sister-in-law, Jennifer’s sister Fiona Gibney and the boy who plays Mrs Brown’s grandson Bono is played by O’Carroll’s real life grandson Jamie O’Carroll – got all that?

The show is one of the most successful sitcoms in recent times, earning it the 2012 BAFTA award for Best Situation Comedy, and most recently the National Television Award for best Situation Comedy during last week’s prestigious ceremony.

And now it seems that the O’Carroll family are ready to take the hugely popular show to the big screen!

According to Brendan O’Carroll the film is beyond the planning stages and is actually due to commence filming this September!

He told Digital Spy: “It’s called Mrs Brown D’Movie, and it should be released in June of next year to compete with the World Cup.

“Once we’ve finished that, there may be a possibility of a fourth television series.”

Do you think Mrs Browns Boys will suit a film? Or do you think that its current situation, filming in front of a live audience, is part of what makes the show so magical?
