Martin McDonagh's next film

Neither In Bruges or Seven Psychopaths feature any prominent female characters — a fact screenwriter, playwright, and director Martin McDonagh is well aware of. There’s a reason why in Seven Psychopaths Hans (Christopher Walken) tells Marty (Colin Farrell), a struggling screenwriter, the following: “Your women characters are awful. None of them have anything to say for themselves. And most of them get either shot or stabbed to death within five minutes. And the ones that don’t probably will later on.”

But while McDonagh’s female characters are far from “awful,” especially on the stage, it’s still interesting to hear he’s making his next feature about a woman. Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri stars Frances McDormand, and Seven Psychopaths stars Sam Rockwell and Woody Harrelson have just been cast to star alongside her.

John Hillcoat interview

John Hillcoat is drawn to extreme worlds. How his characters embrace, reject or accept their brutal environments is a running idea throughout much of the director’s work. The filmmaker’s latest picture, Triple 9, is definitely a John Hillcoat film, filled with pain and violence. He’s never one to shy away from reality. In fact, he fights for it.

After the jump, read our John Hillcoat interview.

triple 9 clips

On paper, Triple 9 sounds like familiar territory, another story of corrupt cops butting heads with police officers and crooks alike. But if you place John Hillcoat in the director’s chair, I’m suddenly very interested. And if you then place Casey Affleck, Woody HarrelsonChiwetel Ejiofor, Kate Winslet, Anthony Mackie, Norman Reedus, Gal Gadot, and Aaron Paul in front of the camera, you’ve just sold a ticket.

A new batch of Triple 9 clips have arrived on the the heels of those very intense trailers and posters, just in case you need some additional convincing that a crime film with that line-up deserves to be on your radar. Whether it’s ultimately good or bad remains to be seen, but there’s no way this movie is boring.

The answer is Triple 9, a gritty crime thriller that lands in theaters next weekend. The Black List script by Matt Cook centers on a group of corrupt officers blackmailed by the mob into pulling off an insane heist. They decide the only way to pull it off is to kill one of their own, but suffice it to say things don’t go as planned.
