BAFTA nomination for Castlemagner’s Will Collins

Castlemagner native and screenwriter Will Collins is having a wonderful year after being nominated for a BAFTA Award, a few weeks after his script for the hit animated film ‘Wolfwalkers’ was nominated for a Golden Globe. Wolfwalkers was also chosen as one of Time Magazine’s ten best movies of 2020. In 2015 his script for the film ‘Song of the Sea’ received a nomination in the best animated feature category at the Academy Awards, and this year he is hoping to get his hands on the golden statuette. ‘Wolfwalkers’ tells the story of a young apprentice hunter named Robyn and her father as they journey to Ireland to wipe out the last wolf pack, and its stars include Seán Bean, Tommy Tiernan and Jon Kenny. It is currently being shown on the Apple+ steaming service all over the world and is a huge success. The BAFTAs will be broadcast on BBC One on April 11th.
