A couple of things;
Firstly, we've heard from Mark Baker regarding "The Patriot." He spent two weeks in pre-production training Mel Gibson and Heath Ledger to fire and reload quickly. (Eric H., we know you've got a pic to share!)
Joe Hinson, of course, might be so good as to post some more on his "Patriotic" duties.
Regarding "Bade the Wild Geese Go" ... thanks for passing it along, Clabert. I assume it was posted to 18th century reenactor lists in the hope of garnering some enthusiastic participation & the various actors' names added for further appeal. However, there is no such production underway & the Film Board in County Donegal has heard nothing regarding it. Perhaps there are hopes for such a production in the future & the waters of reenactor enthusiasm were being tested.
However, there may be a project on the Irish Patriot/Wild Geese Exile, Hugh O'Neill (16th/early 17th century) in the future. Tyrone Productions (Riverdance) is interested in such a production though nothing is finalized.
You can read a bit about Patriot Hugh O'Neill at the site below.
