13 years after 'In Bruges' lit up cinema screens, the writer and director will be reuniting the two main cast for what is sure to be another darkly humorous title.
Filmmaker and playwright Martin McDonagh has will be working with Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson in his next feature film. The last time all three worked on a project together was 2008's 'In Bruges'.
Entitled 'The Banshees of Inisherin', the two Irish stars are attached as the lead roles of two men living on a remote island who have been the best of friends all of their lives. However, the pair's friendship begins to sour, and one of them wishes to end their friendship and leave the island.
The most recent movie which springs to mind, which is also about two men living on a remote part of the world, is 'The Lighthouse' starring Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson. Given that this is a McDonagh production however, we reckon there probably won't be any weird octopus scenes on the horizon, and instead will be a dark comedy showcasing the natural ability the two actors have at bouncing off one another.
According to sources, the movie was originally planned to be a stage production. However, McDonagh said it "isn't any good", and shelved the title. Presumedly he has reworked the storyline enough to deem it worthy of a movie?
'In Bruges' was martin McDonagh's very first feature film, and since then he has gone from strength to strength in Hollywood. He recruited Colin Farrell once again for his 2012 film 'Seven Psychopaths' before winning a Best Picture Golden Globe for 'Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri' with Frances McDormand.
Earlier this week, Colin Farrell's next movie role confirmed him to be teaming up with another previous co-star. He and Rachel Weisz, who appear in Yorgos Lanthimos's 'The Lobster', will star in 'Love Child'. The actor's next role will see him play Penguin in 'The Batman'.
Meanwhile, Brendan Gleeson will next appear in a Shakespearean adaptation 'The Tragedy of Macbeth' opposite Frances McDormand and Denzel Washington, as King Duncan.
