To be honest, I don’t even care what Seven Psychopaths is about. I mean, yes, I care. But it’s Martin McDonagh, I am sure it will be wry and brilliant, and of course I will see it. But it’s not so much the exact plot points I’m interested in as the bizarre characters that seem to inhabit the film, played by a cast of manic weirdos whose presence alone is enough to make me want to shell out $14 on a movie ticket. But from what I’ve cared to gather, the film is a dark comedy that has something to do with the kidnapping of a mobster’s shih tzu, a struggling screenwriter, but most importantly, Tom Waits stroking a pet rabbit.
Woody Harrelson replaces Mickey Rourke in Seven Psychopaths
Martin McDonagh’s In Bruges follow-up Seven Psychopaths has already got a cast to die for, but that ensemble just got even better with the announcement that Woody Harrelson and Tom Waits have signed on, with Olga Kurylenko also in negotiations.
The new trio will join existing stars Colin Farrell, Christopher Walken and Sam Rockwell to tell the story of a Hollywood screenwriter (Farrell) who becomes embroiled in a scheme cooked up by his friends (Walken and Rockwell) to dognap the beloved pet of a vicious gangster.
