Two clips from “In Bruges” writer-director Martin McDonagh’s upcoming heist satire, “Seven Psychopaths,” the Midnight movie audience winner in Toronto, confirm that the ensemble cast has some reckless chemistry. In “Seven Psychopaths,” Colin Farrell plays a disgruntled screenwriter, whose inane friends get him involved in a dognapping racket. When they accidentally steal a dog from an intimidating gangster (Woody Harrelson) the group finds themselves in hot water.
The first clip features Christopher Walken, Colin Farrell, and Sam Rockwell discussing the implications of the small Shih Tzu they’ve stolen; the second clip shows Farrell and Rockwell consulting Tom Waits, who is holding a bunny. The film was well-reviewed out of Toronto; it’s hilarious; Rockwell, against formidable competition, steals the movie. CBS Films should see some business when “Seven Psychopaths” opens October 12.
