Ian Bailey says he'll fully co-operate with a review into the murder of Sophie Toscan du Plantier.
The new Garda inquiry comes over 25 years after the French filmmaker was beaten to death near Schull in West Cork.
Mr Bailey was arrested twice but never charged - although he was convicted in his absence in Paris.
He plans to work with officers in their review, in the hopes it clears his name.
"I would hope they'll be able to discover who was the murderer... and an acknowledgement that it wasn't me."
New witness statements and improvements in DNA testing are understood to have prompted a cold case review into the murder
