As far as I’m concerned, this story is all about Seven Psychopaths. Martin McDonagh‘s follow-up to one of 2008′s best (In Bruges) has a to-die-for lineup — Colin Farrell, Woody Harrelson, Sam Rockwell, and Christopher Walken — a promising logline (one which involves dog-kidnapping), and a reportedly terrific script. In other words, there’s plenty reason we had this so high on our most anticipated of 2012 list.
Now, BoxOfficeMojo reports that CBS Films will open the comedy on November 2nd — in what appears to be a limited capacity, though one I fully expect to widen in subsequent weeks. Now that we know when to mark the calendars, Seven Psychopaths could easily prove to be one of 2012′s brightest offerings. I dare say it this early!
In the meantime, CBS have also cleared their schedules for the Coen brothers-scripted Gambit and the Bradley Cooper-led The Words. The former of those has our attention for obvious, just-cited reasons (sorry, Michael Hoffman), but it should be nonetheless interesting to see Colin Firth, Cameron Diaz, Alan Rickman, and Stanley Tucci do a heist story together. Color me a little surprised, however, that this one’s hitting on January 11th, 2013. And you know what they say about January…
The Words, a drama (partially) about the dangers of plagiarism, will be hitting on September 21st. Zoe Saldana, Jeremy Irons, and Olivia Wilde also star — for directors Brian Klugman and Lee Sternthal — in the film, which was able to earn our good word at Sundance. Very little else is needed when you want to know if a film’s worth your time.
Which of these are you looking forward to the most?
