Found: Charlie Costello’s Shih Tzu – Bonny – From SEVEN PSYCHOPATHS
Case solved. I have Costello’s Shih Tzu.
The La Brea Tar Pits of Southern California are a long way from St. Louis, MO. You can imagine my surprise when Bonny arrived on the front porch in a little pet carrier. This girl has seen better times – and on the Red Carpet! The canine star of CBS Films’ SEVEN PSYCHOPATHS attended the film’s Midnight Madness screening at the Toronto International Film Festival in September.
Costello’s “I NEED YOUR HELP PLEASE” plea fell on deaf ears once my pups, Dutch and Sally, saw there was a new pooch on the scene and gave Bonny the once-over sniff. I tried telling them she was not a chew toy.
Rest assured Charlie Costello – Bonny will be here. *Cough* Stockholm Syndrome *Cough*. Waiting and resting comfortably. Guess the Man and Dog massages you mentioned over on Twitter for Columbus Day will just have to wait. https://twitter.com/PsychoCostello
Before you see the film next weekend – and you’ll really want to as it has one of the best final standoffs on film - check out this behind the scenes video with director Martin McDonagh and stars Colin Farrell, Christopher Walken, Sam Rockwell, Abbie Cornish and the great Woody Harrelson. I’m a huge fan of IN BRUGES, another of McDonagh’s films. Starring Farrell and Brendan Gleeson, the movie scored a BAFTA award and saw an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Screenplay.
Written and Directed by Oscar®-winner Martin McDonagh, the edgy, clever comedy SEVEN PSYCHOPATHS follows a struggling screenwriter (Colin Farrell) who inadvertently becomes entangled in the Los Angeles criminal underworld after his oddball friends (Christopher Walken and Sam Rockwell) kidnap a gangster’s (Woody Harrelson) beloved Shih Tzu. Co-starring Abbie Cornish, Tom Waits, Olga Kurylenko, Gabourey Sidibe and Zeljko Ivanek, the film hits theaters October 12th.
