‘Seven Psychopaths’ to be Quite the Ensemble

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 18th, 2011

Martin McDonagh’s new film is turning into a veritable powerhouse of acting. Woody Harrelson (Zombieland), Tom Waits (The Book of Eli), and Olga Kurylenko (Quantum of Solace) have just been signed to join Colin Farrell (Fright Night), Sam Rockwell (Moon) and Christopher Walken (everything) in Seven Psychopaths, a story of dog-napping, drama, and lack of motivation.

The story centers around a struggling screenwriter (Farrell) who has a script in mind but can’t flesh it out on paper. Trying to find inspiration, he joins two of his friends (Rockwell and Walken) in their dog-napping schemes. However, when the Shih Tzu of an insane mobster (Harrelson) goes missing, Farrell’s character finds all the inspiration he needs – while running for his life.

The film is written and directed by Martin McDonagh, who’s been off the books since 2008’s In Bruges. Graham Broadbent and Peter Czernin (both of In Bruges) will produce, along with Tessa Ross’ (Slumdog Millionaire) executive production know-how.

Mickey Rourke, just free of Immortals, has been rumored to have a role in the film. However, he never closed a deal and so will not be appearing.

Movie Quotes

Ben Gates:
The past is filled with incredible mysteries. The clues to solving them are all around, hidden in plain sight. But this story begins with the most famous assassination in history. Abraham Lincoln's killer, John Wilkes Booth, kept a diary. A diary that was found the night Booth was killed, with 18 pages missing. Concealed in those pages is the key to something much, much bigger. A conspiracy that crosses the globe, and a discovery that the world isn't ready to believe.
