Writer and director Martin McDonagh’s In Bruges was one of the finest films of 2008, and I am so excited about his next film, Seven Psychopaths. With a cast to die for and a plot which guarantees the same sort of brilliance witnessed in In Bruges, I have no doubt Seven Psychopaths will be amazing.
While we still await a release date for the film, or even a trailer, we do now have the very first poster to share with you and you can check it out at the bottom of this post. The poster was spotted at CinemaCon, which begins in Las Vegas tomorrow. The poster has a slightly Usual Suspects feel to it, and shows off its great cast in fine style.
Written and directed by Martin McDonagh, Seven Psychopaths’ superb cast includes Colin Farrell, Woody Harrelson, Abbie Cornish, Christopher Walken, Sam Rockwell, Olga Kurylenko and Tom Waits.
Farrell plays a screenwriter who struggles to find the handle on his script, called Seven Psychopaths. He gets drawn into the dog-napping escapades of his friends (played by Rockwell and Walken). Once the beloved Shih Tzu owned by a psychopathic gangster (Harrelson) goes missing, the screenwriter finds himself fueled with all the drama he needs for his screenplay, if he can stay alive long enough to write it all down.
