Colin Farrell officially has a run for his money in regards to most attractive on the Seven Psycopaths set, thanks to the inclusion of Australia’s Abbie Cornish (Limitless, Bright Star) in the film. She’ll play Farrell’s character Marty’s girlfriend, Kaya.
The news comes from Grey Munford, VP of Communications at CBS Films (the company producing the film), via his Twitter account:
“Yes, Abbie Cornish is in Seven Psychopaths. She’s playing Kaya, Marty’s (Colin Farrell) girlfriend.http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1931533/“
Psychopaths marks the sophomore film of Martin McDonagh, who announced his presence with authority thanks to In Bruges, a delightfully dark crime caper starring Farrell and Brendan Gleeson.
This time around, McDonagh’s telling the tale of a screenwriter (Farrell) and his haphazard involvement in a dog-napping attempt that goes wrong. He proceeds to meet a handful of people who are, let’s say, crazy?
Woody Harrelson, Christopher Walken, Sam Rockwell, Tom Waits and Olga Kurylenko also star. Mickey Rourke had been sought after for a role, then he called McDonagh a “jerkoff” who could “go play with himself.” Harrelson replaced Rourke in a role as a crazy gangster not too long after that.

Are you looking forward to McDonagh’s next?
