From Oscar®-winning writer and director Martin McDonagh comes a star-studded, blood-drenched, black comedy. Marty (Farrell) is a struggling writer who dreams of finishing his screenplay Seven Psychopaths and all he needs is a little focus and inspiration. Billy (Rockwell) is Martys best friend, an unemployed actor and part time dog thief, who wants to help Marty by any means necessary. Hans (Walken) is Billys partner in crime, a religious man with a violent past. Charlie (Harrelson) is the psycho-pathetic gangster whose beloved dog Billy and Hans have just stolen. Charlie is unpredictable, extremely violent and wouldnt think twice about killing anyone or anything associated with the theft. Marty is going to get all the focus and inspiration he needs, just as long as he lives to tell the tale.
The film was produced by Martin McDonagh, Graham Broadbent (In Bruges) and Peter Czernin (The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel). Its executive producer is Tessa Ross (127 Hours).
