In Bruges

According to Deadline, Woody Harrelson and Sam Rockwell will lend their twin shit-eating grins to the better-be-aptly-named drama Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, starring Frances McDormand and written and directed by Martin McDonagh (In Bruges). The film is believed to be about a 50-year-old woman (McDormand) whose daughter is murdered and who then “goes to war with the police in her hometown” because she thinks they are more interested in persecuting black people than getting justice. Filming will begin next month in North Carolina, where they also have billboards and racism. And although McDonagh’s last film, Seven Psychopaths, was a marginal step down from the terrific In Bruges, he’s still one of the most talented filmmakers in the business. Pairing him with this cast for a story about heated social issues can, presumably, only lead to glorious cinematic diatribes laced with four-letter words—and probably a good movie.
