The film stars Ben Barnes as Neil McCormick, Robert Sheehan as Ivan McCormick, and Martin McCann as Irish singer Bono. It marked Pete Postlethwaite's final film role.
The film was shot in Northern Ireland and was funded by Northern Ireland Screen and was released by Paramount Pictures (the distributor of U2's film Rattle and Hum) in the United Kingdom on 1 April 2011. Sony Music Entertainment released the movie's soundtrack worldwide. The European premiere was held in the Savoy Cinema in Dublin.
