Woody Harrelson and Sam Rockwell are reuniting with their Seven Psychopaths director Martin McDonagh for a new crime drama.
The actors will co-star in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, which will feature Frances MCDormand as a distraught mother who wages war on the local police, accusing them of focusing their efforts on hounding and torturing African-Americans instead of solving her daughter's murder, reports Deadline.com.
Further details about Harrelson and Rockwell's roles have yet to be revealed, but filming is due to begin in North Carolina in April (16).
The project, which was also written by MCDonagh, marks the filmmaker's second movie with both Harrelson and Rockwell, who portrayed gangsters in the 2012 crime comedy Seven Psychopaths.

Daniel Radcliffe enjoys partying with his co-stars after coming off stage.
The former 'Harry Potter' star, who will bring Martin Mcdonagh's dark comedy 'The Cripple of Inishmaan' to Broadway in New York City later this month, following a successful run in London, admits he likes to let his hair down after performing in front of an audience.
The 24-year-old actor, who became teetotal in 2010 after his drinking spiralled out of control told the April issue of DuJour magazine: ''I love to hang out after shows. On 'How to Succeed,' we had something called Thursday Night on Broadway, because Thursday we'd have an early show, and after we'd all have a party upstairs in one of the dressing rooms. That's the sort of stuff that makes a show, and this company of 'Cripple,' we're really a close-knit group, we make each other laugh quite a lot so I'm sure I'll be repeating some of those nights.''

Martin McDonagh gleefully plays with both the gang thriller genre and the moviemaking process with this enjoyably absurd action comedy. It's a little self-indulgent, acknowledging how difficult he found it to follow up his acclaimed film In Bruges. But a continual stream of hilariously clever gags make it thoroughly entertaining, and the seriously great actors are so playful that it's infectious.
At the centre, naturally, is an Irish writer named Marty (Farrell), living in Hollywood and struggling to write his next screenplay. He settles on the title Seven Psychopaths, and decides that his lead character will be a nonviolent Buddhist killer. Otherwise he's stuck. Then he discovers that his hyperactive pal Billy (Rockwell) is running a scam with Hans (Walken), kidnapping dogs and claiming the rewards from their owners. This all goes terribly wrong when they grab the beloved shitzu of the mercurial thug Charlie (Harrelson), sending him into a murderous rampage. And as Marty finds himself in the middle of it, his script starts to take shape.
McDonagh is adept at combining freewheeling wackiness with more astute observational comedy. This film isn't as emotionally resonant as In Bruges, but it crackles with the same sharp dialog and offhanded violent silliness. Most of this plays up the amusing shock value of sudden death, although there are moments that are surprisingly touching, mainly due to a wonderfully textured turn from Walken. Rockwell is the other standout as the manic, unpredictable Billy, an enthusiastic mischief-maker. And Harrelson has a great presence as the funny-terrifying Charlie.

Seven Psychopaths, starring Colin Farrell, hits US cinemas tomorrow (October, 12 2012). The Martin Mcdonagh directed film see a struggling screenwriter inadvertently caught up Los Angeles criminal underworld after a gangster’s Shih Tzu is kidnapped. It’s a comedy, unless you didn’t get that by now. We’ve trawled through some Seven Psychopaths reviews, so you don’t have to.
Early indications suggest that the film is really quite good, as it has a healthy rating of 95% on film-score aggregator site Rotten Tomatoes. Empire Magazine says it’s “a funny, dirty and very, very violent comedy that tilts at serious themes (as did In Bruges, but in a different way) and does so with a messy, irreverent, gung-ho energy.” Another review, this time from Entertainment Weekly, praises the film’s script, which was also penned by McDonagh: “An energetically demented psycho-killer comedy set in faux-noir L.A.,” writes Lisa Schwarzbaum. “Seven Psychopaths rollicks along to the unique narrative beat and language stylings of Anglo-Irish writer-director Martin McDonagh, channelling Quentin Tarantino.” High praise indeed!
In fact, most reviews were unanimous in praise for the crime-comedy, which stars Michael Pitt, Colin Farrell and Christopher Walken in an impressive cast. We couldn’t see any negative words about it, apart from the New York Observer calling it “genuinely humor-resistant.” But with its overwhelmingly positive reception, it looks like your cinema tickets for tomorrow night are sorted. U.K viewers will have to wait until December 9, 2012 to see it, though.
Marty is a budding screenwriter in LA with hopes of completing his major screenplay 'Seven Psychopaths' but involuntarily gets mixed up in his friends Hans and Billy's career of dog kidnapping; a way of earning money that involves stealing people's pet pooches and returning them some days later to claim the reward. Billy is an actor and Marty's best friend who tries desperately to keep him safe when he is almost killed after Billy and Hans steal the much-loved Shih Tzu of unhinged gangster, Charlie; a man whose fury and devastation at losing his dog is enough drive to execute whoever he thinks is involved. Hans is religious with a violent past but now recognises non-violence as a better way to live. However, he, Billy and Marty will struggle avoiding violence at the hands of Charlie especially as they choose to ignore their worried and annoyed girlfriends' suggestions to return the dog.
'Seven Psychopaths' is a wonderful crime comedy that spoofs the trend of all the serious gangster movies that have been released this year. Directed, written and produced by the Oscar winning Martin Mcdonagh ('In Bruges', 'Six Shooter'), this star-studded flick is definitely one for dog lovers and gangster film lovers alike. It is scheduled for release in the UK this winter on December 7th 2012.
