 Woody-Harrelson-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 Woody Harrelson for an exclusive interview.  We talked about collaborating with Martin McDonagh and did he change any of the script, how he landed the role, how it was originally going to be played by Mickey Rourke, his desire to write more and direct a play in NYC, and he talked a little about The Hunger Games sequel Catching Fire.  Hit the jump to watch.

Woody Harrelson:

  • Does he like Superman
  • Talks about how he got the role and how it was originally going to be Mickey Rourke
  • What was it like to collaborate with Martin McDonagh and did he change any of the script
  • What is he looking to do in the future.  Talks about how he co-wrote and directed a play in NYC
