In Bruges director Martin McDonagh starts production on new film in April

Despite having only two feature films to his name, Martin McDonagh is already a director that cinephiles eagerly await new material from. His debut, IN BRUGES, brought audiences some terrific dialogue wrapped inside of a twisted, comedic tale. While his follow-up, SEVEN PSYCHOPATHS, didn't exactly make the same waves, the flick still has its audience. So what's next for McDonagh? THREE BILLBOARDS OUTSIDE EBBING, MISSOURI.

McDonagh had previously stated that "It’s about a 50-year-old woman whose daughter is murdered, and she goes to war with the police in her home town because she thinks they are more interested in torturing black people than getting justice.” Last year, it was reported that Frances McDormand was in talks to play the lead. While that has yet to be confirmed, you'd be hard-pressed to find a better leading lady for the type of material McDonagh is capable of writing.

Given that the film is gearing up to shoot soon, we should hear more about the cast within the coming weeks. I felt SEVEN PSYCHOPATHS was a bit of a mixed bag, but it had moments of brilliance. IN BRUGES, on the other hand, is about as good a directorial debut as you could ask for. Great actors delivering great dialogue. As long as McDonagh continues to deliver on that front, I'm sure we're in good hands.

THREE BILLBOARDS OUTSIDE EBBING, MISSOURI will shoot this spring.

Sounds good but I don't think he's right for the material based on that brief synopsis. This sounds more of a gritty crime drama in the vein of Gone Baby Gone or Mystic River and although Marty is good, he fares better with sort of comedic crime. Not gritty Sleepers type crime drama.

In Bruges is one of my favorite movies of all time, and Seven Psychopaths, while it does have a few flaws, is criminally underrated in my opinion. Can't wait for this one.

Not a "white wash" whiner but...

A movie about a woman who goes to war with corupt, racist cops after the death of her daughter sounds like a missed opportunity to cast an older, African American, female actress. It's a PC trifecta! Granted, I know nothing about the plot of the movie but in the current Hollywood climate of race issues, that description isn't doing it any favors.

It actually works Its about a woman who feels the Cops are too busy being racist towards the Black community that they neglect real crimes. Case in point, this womans daughters murder. It works. You have to imagine, all the times the Cops in NY stop and frisk blacks and latinos, real crimes have to be getting neglected some where.
