The mystery voice on our climate change video is none other than Jeremy Irons.  Showing his support, Mr. Irons stated:

“It’s time to recognise the devastating impact that climate change is already having on people living in poverty. We must make it clear to our leaders that they have to act now and deliver a global deal that supports developing countries in their efforts to cope and adapt. I encourage you to join Oxfam Ireland’s campaign today and together, we can send a strong and clear message that now is the time for action on climate change.”

A possible upcoming film project for Jeremy Irons that of Reconstruction of Warriors, based on the book of the same name by E.R. Mayhew, about pioneering New Zealand plastic surgeon, Archibald McIndoe, who worked for the Royal Air Force during World War II. He greatly improved the treatment and rehabilitation of badly burned Spitfire pilots.

All of the details are not confirmed about the project but, according to various sites on the Internet, a screenplay has been written by Ireland-based writer Steven Goldsmith. Goldsmith was hired by Kevin Byron Murphy of Titian Red Pictures. The movie would be shot in Budapest, Hungary and in Ireland.

Likely director for the project is Lajos Koltai, a cinematographer and director who frequently works with Istvan Szabo. Lajos Koltai was the cinematographer for Jeremy’s movie Being Julia.
