Sticking to the music

Posted by · 5:54 pm · October 30th, 2008

Way back in April, in my very first post for InContention as it happens, I reported that Marketa Irglova — the delightful star of “Once” and the woman responsible for the best speech of this year’s Oscar ceremony — was in talks to further her acting career by appearing in “Darkness,” a new horror film from Czech veteran Juraj Herz.

Sadly, it’s not to be. Irglova has backed out of the project in order to tour with her personal and professional partner (and, of course, “Once” co-star) Glen Hansard. I shouldn’t complain, since I can’t wait to see them in concert, but it would’ve been interesting to see her on screen again. Here’s hoping something else comes up.

    I saw them open for Damien Rice back in December of 2006. If you ever get the chance to see either act, do it immediately.

    And, of course, I hope to see at least one of them on screen again sometime.
