'In Bruges' Director and Colin Farrell Round Up 'Seven Psychopaths'
The two collaborated on the dark action comedy In Bruges along with Brendon Gleeson, but now writer/director Martin McDonagh and actor Colin Farrell are teaming up again for another black comedy. Variety reports the two will team-up for Seven Psychopaths, and if an In Bruges reunion isn't a sweet enough deal for you, maybe the other cast members will change your mind. Joining Farrell in the film will be Christopher Walken, Sam Rockwell and Mickey Rourke. The project is currently being shopped around at Cannes (see Alex's coverage here) like almost all other films with news this week.
The story follows a screenwriter (Farrell) struggling for inspiration for his script, "Seven Psychopaths," who gets drawn into the dog kidnapping schemes of his oddball friends (Rockwell and Walken). Things take a turn for the worse when a gangster's (Rourke) mutt goes missing. Sounds like it's definitely in the same vein as In Bruges with the mix of crime and twisted comedy. The project is also comes from the producers of In Bruges, so for fans of the 2008 film, this should pretty much be a bingo. Sound good?
