Colin Farrell one of the “Seven Psychopaths”
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Colin Farrell has always been funny. It just took the industry a while to figure out how to use his dark sense of humor.
Seriously, even when Farrell was supposed to be serious in films like “Tigerland,” “Hart’s War” or Malick’s “The New World,” there’s an air of flippancy that always gives his character an edge. But for true examples of Farrell’s demented sense of humor, check out the trailer for “Horrible Bosses” that hit the internet earlier this week (I’ve posted it below). Then rent “Daredevil,” “Intermission,” and Martin McDonagh’s hilarious “In Bruges.” You’ll be laughing for days.
So it pleases us to no end that Farrell and McDonagh plan to reunite for “Seven Psychopaths,” where, according to Variety, he’ll play “a screenwriter who runs into a block and ends up getting involved in his friends’ dog-kidnapping scheme.”
It’s notable because the “friends” in question include Sam Rockwell, Christopher Walken and Mickey Rourke. Um, sign us up.
No word on when “Psychopaths,” or who the other three psychopaths will be, but so far, this one sounds like something to watch.
