The most prominent film star to come out as gay in Ireland is the actor, who starred in films such as I Love Lucy and A Christmas Carol.
The film’s producer, Stephen Lees, said the film had not received positive reviews and that a new film in the franchise was a possibility.
But he said he believed it would be a good time for a new gay character in the world of the film, which has not yet been released.
The actor, best known for his roles in the films of Peter Weir, the first gay man in Hollywood and the last openly gay man to play a leading role in the film industry, was at the Dublin Film Festival today.
The movie, based on a true story, is the second in a trilogy of films that Lees is developing.
