Seven Psychopaths Loses Rourke, Gains Harrelson and Waits
Just yesterday, Moviefone broke the news that Mickey Rourke had parted ways with In Bruges director Martin McDonagh and his next film Seven Psychopaths. “Parted ways” might be putting a nicer gloss on what happened, as Rourke called the director a “jerkoff,” later saying, “He can go play with himself.”
With the unpleasantness out of the way, there’s also some good news: The Hollywood Reporter says Woody Harrelson will replace Rourke as the movie’s main antagonist, a gangster whose dog is stolen by Sam Rockwell and Christopher Walken, who play the friends of Colin Farrell’s struggling screenwriter.
Singer and sometimes actor Tom Waits and Olga Kurylenko (Quantum of Solace) have also been added as “shady underworld characters.” Filming began this week, but no release date has been announced.
