Joe Murtagh is a London born Irish writer. He comes from a family of carpenters and labourers, though it's been said that Joe himself "couldn't hammer a nail straight", and after some site experience, he would wholeheartedly agree. So he's making a good go of writing.
Joe's first feature film, CALM WITH HORSES (adapted from the short story of the same name by Colin Barrett) is currently in production (DMC Film / Element Pictures / Film 4) with Nick Rowland directing & Cosmo Jarvis and Barry Keoghan starring. He is currently developing a number of features, including DEVIL'S RIVER (Inflammable Films / Creative England) and DREADFUL NED (DMC Film).
For television Joe is developing a TV series called WITCHFINDER (Clerkenwell Films) and an original drama series called RIOT GIRLS (Eleven Film). He has recently written an episode of Mika Watkins' TV Series ORIGIN (Youtube Red/Left Bank Pictures). Joe is a 2016 Screen International Star of Tomorrow.
