Producers are on the search for a boy who can pass as 13-years-old to play the titular role.

Described as a "feel-good, foul-mouthed fairy-tale", the film sees a "trainwreck" new mum wind up on a road trip with a young boy who is on the run from his conman father.

The film will be directed by Emer Reynolds, who made the acclaimed space documentary The Farthest and the Phil Lynott-focused Songs for While I'm Away.

Reynolds' first non-documentary feature film, Mully will shoot from June to August in Ireland.

No previous acting experience is required when applying to play the title character.

Reynolds' said about the casting call: "The search begins for Mully. Incredible part for a young male actor - playing 13 year old Mully opposite the peerless Olivia Colman.

"Look forward to meeting you!"
