Colin Farrell has a new interview with Flicks and Bits, along with Sam Rockwell, talking about their new movie ‘Seven Psychopaths’. The director of ‘Seven Psychopaths’ is the same director that worked with Farrell on ‘In Bruges’, so Farrell admits that there was definitely a kind of shorthand between them. He says, “When we were shooting ‘In Bruges’ Martin alluded to this script ‘Seven Psychopaths’ by letting me know that ‘In Bruges’ was actually a rehearsal to see if he liked shooting movies, that he had a real script that he wanted to shoot – which was much better than ‘In Bruges,’ and that was this one. So before I even read ‘Seven Psychopaths’ I was….he’s just a brilliant writer, let’s just call a spade a spade (laughs). It being the second film I’ve done with him, there’s definitely a shorthand, which is nice to experience.”
He also talks about his experience reading the Seven Psychopaths script, saying it absolutely jumped off the page. He says, “With the ’Seven Psychopaths’ script, every now and then you read something and it just jumps of the page, and ’Seven Psychopaths’ does that….and then it slaps you across the face, it gets you by the back of the head and slams you into a table, then it gives you a kick in the arse – it really takes you on a wonderful ride (laughs). I was delighted to be working with Martin again. I loved the script for ‘Seven Psychopaths.”
Seven Psychopaths also co-stars Christopher Walken and is getting very strong reviews ahead of its wide release in theaters.
