Irish Jam: According to the The Hollywood Reporter, Eddie Griffin is set to play the leading man in Irish Jam, a quirky feature about an Irish village that pawns the local pub to save itself from a takeover. When the villagers find that their hometown is up for sale, they set up a poetry contest offering the local pub as a prize as a way to raise money. It comes as quite a surprise when a rapper/con man (Griffin) from Los Angeles wins.

Due to go into production in May, "Irish" is being directed and written by John Eyre.
