Martin-McDonagh -Colin-Farrell-Seven-Psychopaths-interview-slice

One of the best films I saw at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival was writer-director Martin McDonagh‘s (In Bruges) dark comedy Seven PsychopathsThe film centers on a screenwriter (Colin Farrell) suffering writer’s block, who then gets drawn into the mischief of his two dog-napping friends (Sam Rockwell and Christopher Walken) after they kidnap a pooch belonging to a psychotic gangster (Woody Harrelson).  For more on the film that also stars Tom Waits, Zeljko Ivanek, Abbie Cornish, and Olga Kurylenko, here’s Matt’s review, seven clips, and all our previous coverage.

The day after the world premiere I sat down with McDonagh and Farrell for an exclusive interview.  We talked about what it was like to premiere in Toronto, how controlling is McDonagh with the dialogue and did anything change on set, deleted scenes, and what will it take for McDonagh to make a movie every year.  Hit the jump to watch.

Finally, Seven Psychopaths opens October 12, don’t miss it.

Martin McDonagh and Colin Farrell:

  • What was it like to premiere at TIFF and hear the audience loving the movie
  • Does the script change a lot on set and how controlling is McDonagh with the actors when they’re delivering their dialogue
  • Were there a lot of deleted scenes and will they be on the eventual Blu-ray.  McDonagh says there were at least 30 minutes of deleted scenes
  • What will it take to get McDonagh to make a movie every year
