If you loved Martin McDonagh’s In Bruges as much as I did, I’ll assume your heart will do the same little dance as mine when you read this news. First, a small aside; Mister McDonagh, please put your hot self in one of your movies because, DUDE! You are like a more kickass version of Sting, all steely blue eyes and intensity.
Back to business. So, clever boy that he is, McDonagh is assembling the cast for his next film, Seven Psychopaths and he’s rounding up actual psychopaths. How can it go wrong?
I mean, really, just throw these guys in a room and imagine what would happen. Black.comedy.gold. Reuniting In Bruges producers, Tessa Ross, Graham Broadbent and Peter Czernin, Seven Psychopaths follows a screenwriter (Farrell) who gets caught up in his friends’ (Walken, Rockwell, Rourke) hair-brained, dognapping scheme. Real life dog lover and champion, Rourke plays a gangster whose own dog disappears, causing “things to take a turn for the worse.” Just this little bit of information has my heart all aflutter and I cannot wait to see who rounds out the seven (Bring back Ralph Fiennes!).
Seven Psychopaths is up for sale at Cannes. Me, I’m going to go sit and wait by the theater right now.
