Though Martin McDonagh's In Bruges failed to set the box office on fire it won the Irish director a hard core following of intensely loyal fans, the film becoming something of a cult sensation. And so when word came out that he was back to work on an action comedy revolving around dog-napping people took notice. And when he assembled a cast of Colin Farrell, Sam Rockwell, Christopher Walken and Woody Harrelson ... well, all signs pointed towards gold.
Written and Directed by Oscar®-winner Martin McDonagh , the comedy Seven Psychopaths follows a struggling screenwriter (Colin Farrell) who inadvertently becomesentangled in the Los Angeles criminal underworld after his oddball friends (Christopher Walken and Sam Rockwell) kidnap a gangster's (Woody Harrelson) beloved Shih Tzu. Co-starring Abbie Cornish, Tom Waits, Olga Kurylenko and Zeljko Ivanek.
With the film soon to premiere in Toronto the first trailer has arrived online. And it is simply fabulous, thanks in no small part to a seemingly rejuvanated Christopher Walken. I simply can't remember the last time I saw Walken having this much fun and the idea of him opposite Tom Waits is utterly brilliant. Check it out below.
