While the production of his film “The Banshees of Inisherin” is underway, Martin McDonagh already has a future project on the go and the first actors announced to his cast are dreaming.
Martin McDonagh: a distinguished artist
Writer and director, Martin McDonagh puts everyone in agreement in 2018 with 3 Billboards: The Vengeance Panels, worn by the brilliant Frances McDormand. If you are not familiar with the director’s work – initially successful playwright -, know that we also owe him 7 Psychopaths or Good kisses from Bruges.
From 2022, you will also be able to find the filmmaker in dark rooms with The Banshees of Inisherin, a dramedy again starring Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson, unforgettable hitman duo in Good Kisses from Bruges.
Our colleagues from Deadline report that Martin McDonagh is currently working on a new project. According to them, the script of the work is already finished and several production companies are trying to recover it ! Even more, three actors – and not the least – are quite willing to lend their features to the protagonists of the upcoming film.
A slew of big names
Martin McDonagh should first find an actor already present in the cast of 3 Billboards and of 7 Psychopaths. This is the talented Sam Rockwell, who lent his features to the Dixon complex, racist and homophobic cop alongside Frances McDormand. A long-awaited reunion, therefore, which may be worth a new Oscar for Best Supporting Actor to the American actor? In all likelihood, the famous Oscar Isaacs (Inside Llewyn Davis, Dune) – recently seen in the HBO series Scenes from a Marriage – and Christopher Walken (Dead Zone) will also star in Martin McDonagh’s feature film. For the record, this will be the second collaboration of Walken with the writer-director. The actor who is no longer presented thus played a role in 7 Psychopaths.
For the moment, no details are known about the plot of the feature film. hallway noises attest to the high quality of the script, which would not be surprising in view of the filmmaker’s previous works!
