An exclusive bit of news has come out of Cannes Film Festival relating to Terry Loane's upcoming movie. The filmmaker has announced that he already has Ciaran Hinds pegged for Northern Irish drama 'Sisters' while Oscar-winner Tilda Swinton is firmly in his sights.

The movie is being billed as "Dead Poet's Society" meets "Sister Act" according to the Hollywood Reporter.

"Sisters" is set in the 1960s, in West Belfast. It tells the tale of an Irish mother, feminist, activist and nun who lands at a school and changes thousands of deprived kids' lives around with her skills as a teacher.

Loane's past credits include "MickeyBoo & Me" and "Goal 2".
