CBS Films Looks to Co-Finance and Distribute SEVEN PSYCHOPATHS Starring Colin Farrell, Sam Rockwell, and Christopher Walken; First Synopsis Released

The next feature from In Bruges writer/director Martin McDonagh looks like it may have found financing. CBS Films is in negotiations to co-finance and distribute the action comedy Seven Psychopaths, which will be the writer/director’s first feature since his 2008 debut. The film reunites McDonagh with In Bruges star Colin Farrell who is set to play a struggling screenwriter looking for inspiration. He gets roped into a dog kidnapping scheme by his friends, but the three get more than they bargained for when they kidnap a psychopathic gangster’s beloved Shih Tzu. Sam Rockwell and Christopher Walken are signed on to star as Farrell’s oddball friends.

We previously reported that Mickey Rourke had joined the cast (presumably as the eccentric gangster), but the press release from CBS Films doesn’t mention the actor. In Bruges is a black comedy gem, so it’s fantastic news to hear that McDonagh’s follow-up (with a terrific cast in tow) is well on its way. Production on Seven Psychopaths is set to begin this fall in L.A. Hit the jump to read the full synopsis for the flick.

Here’s the official synopsis for Seven Psychopaths:

Marty (Colin Farrell) a screenwriter struggling for inspiration for his script, ‘Seven Psychopaths’, gets unwittingly drawn into the dangerous dog kidnapping schemes of his oddball friends Billy (Sam Rockwell) and Hans (Christopher Walken).  And once the beloved Shih Tzu of the psychopathic gangster Charlie goes missing, Marty finds he’s going to get all the inspiration he needs, as long as he can live to tell the tale…
