‘The Night of the Daniels’ is set to be released on October 28th.

Wee Daniel is stepping into a new role this spooky season, a long way away from the sandy shores of the Lah De Dah.

The short film which will be shared on Youtube is set in the Donegal town of Dungloe, not far from Daniel’s native village of Kincasslagh, and will see Daniel step in to save the day when the town comes under attack.

Following the viral success of his Down At The Lah De Dah music video this time last year, Daniel has teamed up with makers Shaun Duggan and Ciaran McCann of Re-Act Productions for the new film, RTÉ reports. Over the summer, the production company were looking for extras in the areas of Dungloe and Gweedore to be part of the project.

The Donegal News revealed earlier this year that O’Donnell will have to save Dungloe when it comes under attack this Halloween.

McCann told the publication that the video will be a “huge steppingstone” for Re-Act Productions and that working with someone of Daniel O’Donnell’s calibre is a “massive opportunity”.
