Farrell leads an all-star cast, joined by the brilliant likes of Sam Rockwell, Woody Harrelson, Christopher Walken, Abbie Cornish, Olga Kurylenko, Harry Dean Stanton, and Tom Waits, and now the awesome first trailer has debuted online.
“An alcoholic screenwriter (Colin Farrell) struggling to write a serial-killer script gets more real-life inspiration than he can handle when a dognapping scheme gone awry brings a galaxy of crazies to his doorstep. A top-notch cult-movie cast — including Christopher Walken, Sam Rockwell, Woody Harrelson, Tom Waits, Harry Dean Stanton-anchors this wacky, blood-spattered commentary on the psycho-killer thriller from the writer-director of In Bruges.”
The Oscar-winning McDonagh is directing from his own script, and has produced the film alongside BAFTA nominees, Peter Czernin and Graham Broadbent (In Bruges, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel).
Seven Psychopaths will debut at TIFF next month, and will then be heading for a 12th October in the US, followed by a 7th December release here in the UK. Given the awards and nominations that seem to follow McDonagh nicely, I’d say an awards campaign wouldn’t be entirely out of the question here. Either way, we’re looking at a brilliant film, and we can’t wait for it to hit the big screen.
