The Banshees of Inisheer (D: Martin McDonagh) S: Colin Farrell, Brendan Gleeson

EXCLUSIVE UPDATE: Iíve heard from sources that Martin McDonagh has a title ready for his next movie, the one heíll shoot this summer with In Bruges stars Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson in the lead roles. The film is titled The Banshees of Inisheer.

PREVIOUS EXCLUSIVE, 8:07 AM: Martin McDonaghís untitled next film that he set up for world rights at Searchlight Pictures will re-team him with his In Bruges stars Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson, sources said.

The film is set on a remote Irish isle, and they will play two lifelong friends who find themselves at an impasse when one abruptly ends their relationship with alarming consequences for both of them. It will shoot this summer. Film4 is financing in a deal put together by CAA Media Finance.

The writer-director teamed with those actors and Ralph Fiennes in the McDonagh-scripted 2008 black comedy In Bruges, in which Farrell played a hitman who botches a job and is brought to the picturesque city in Belgium to enjoy himself before he is bumped off by a colleague (Gleeson). Turns out the hitman is suicidal because of the botched hit ó a child was killed ó and when his buddy halts his suicide attempt and refuses to bump him off, both of the assassins are targeted by their vicious boss (Fiennes). The pic was a big breakout directorial debut for McDonagh.

McDonagh directed his previous film for Searchlight, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, which won Oscars for Frances McDormand and Sam Rockwell.

Blueprint Pictures is backing The Banshees of Inisheer as producer, with Graham Broadbent, Peter Czernin and McDonagh producing, and Diarmuid McKeown, Ben Knight, Daniel Battsek and Ollie Madden the exec producers.

Oscar-winning writer and director Martin McDonagh is reuniting his In Bruges dream team of Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson for his new film The Banshees of Inisherin.

The film is due to begin filming in August in Galway and tells the story of a pair of lifelong friends on a remote Irish island who find themselves at an awkward time in their relationship when one of them no longer wants to be friends.

However, in true McDonagh fashion, there will be dark and hilarious consequences to the decision.

This movie has been over 25 years in the making. It was originally supposed to be the third instalment in a series of plays McDonagh dubbed the “Aran Islands Trilogy,” which began with The Cripple of Inishmaan and was followed years later by The Lieutenant of Inishmor. In fact, the idea for The Banshees of Inisheer was conceived in 1994, before any of his other plays had even hit the stage.

In a 2016 interview with The New Yorker, McDonagh revealed that he wrote seven plays in 1994 and all of them were produced except Banshee. When asked why, he said it wasn’t “any good".

He has clearly changed his opinion of the work and is now set to give the story the big screen treatment and he is no doubt hoping Farrell and Gleeson can once again work their magic.

I didnít love In Bruges quite as much as others here but I thought Farrell and Gleeson worked really well together. Iím also a fan of both of them in general so Iíll definitely check this out.

Martin McDonagh has not made a less than very good movie yet, so this will of course be added to my watchlist.
