A screenwriter (Colin Farrell) struggling for inspiration for his script, ‘Seven Psychopaths’ gets drawn into the dog-kidnapping scam of his oddball friends Billy (Sam Rockwell) and Hans (Christopher Walken). When a psychopathic gangster’s (Woody Harrelson) Shih Tzu goes missing, Marty finds he has all the inspiration he needs, as long as he can live to tell the tale.
From Academy Award winner Martin McDonagh, writer-director of the acclaimed hitman comedy ‘In Bruges,’ the film will be in theaters November 2, 2012.
