'Seven Psychopaths': Colin Farrell Dognapping Film Gets Pickup

Colin Farrell gave his funniest and most heralded performance in the 2008, Martin McDonaugh-directed comedy, "In Bruges," a black comedy that earned him a Golden Globe. So it only makes sense that the two would team up once again.

According to Deadline, Farrell will star in "Seven Psychopaths," playing a screenwriter with writer's block. Friends with scheming dognappers, played by (the amazingly cast) Sam Rockwell and Christopher Walken, he gets caught up in the theft of a gangster's precious Shih Tzu.

Yes, this is real. And The Hollywood Reporter adds that Mickey Rourke and Tom Waits are also in talks for roles, adding to the insanity of the cast.

CBS films is in talks to put up the cash for this promising bizarro comedy, which would be the next in an impressive run of eclectic parts for Farrell. This summer alone, he starred as Jason Bateman's fat, balding boss in "Horrible Bosses," as well as the sardonic vampire in the remake of "Fright Night."
