CBS Films has released a trailer for Seven Psychopaths, the comedy written and directed by Martin McDonagh. He wrote what I consider to be one of the tightly scripted films in recent years on In Bruges, and he was Oscar-nominated for his writing work on that film. Here’s he’s got Colin Farrell back as a struggling screenwriter who inadvertently becomes entangled in the Los Angeles criminal underworld after his oddball friends (Christopher Walken and Sam Rockwell) kidnap a gangster’s (Woody Harrelson) beloved Shih Tzu. Abbie Cornish, Tom Waits, Olga Kurylenko and Zeljko Ivanek also star. The pic premieres at Toronto in the Midnight Madness section on September 7.
