After working with the Disney-owned studio on his Oscar-nominated Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, Martin McDonagh is teaming up with Searchlight Pictures (formerly Fox Searchlight) for his next project that will also reportedly reunite the 49-year-old manager with In Bruges stars Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson, according to Deadline.

The project, where McDonagh direct and will write, will be set on a remote isle and will accompany when one ends their relationship that will have consequences for the both of 48, two lifelong friends who find themselves at a standstill.

The film is reportedly aiming for a budget of about $20 million and is set to start shooting this summer and the funding having come from CAA Media Finance and Film4.

Farrell and Gleeson’s first time working with the Irish manager came in 2008’s dark comedy In Bruges, which also marked his directorial debut, where the two starred as hitmen that are hiding in the titular Belgian city after the prior botches a job. The latter is told by their manager to kill Farrell’s Ray, but upon learning he’s suicidal from the consequences of the botched hit, he chooses to help keep his friend alive and the two must face their vicious boss, portrayed by Ralph Fiennes (No Time to Die).

In Bruges was a significant success for the manager globally, scoring rave reviews from critics and audiences and bringing in a solid $34.5 million at the box office on a budget of $15 million. It would go on to be nominated for Best Original Screenplay in Best Picture and the 2009 Oscars — Musical or Comedy and two Best Actor nods at the Golden Globes, with Farrell taking home a statue for his performance.

McDonagh would return four years later with the critically-lauded dark comedy crime thriller Seven Psychopaths, once again starring Farrell who led an ensemble cast that featured the likes of Sam Rockwell (Three Billboards), Christopher Walken (Wedding Crashers) and Woody Harrelson (Venom). Though not nominated for any Oscars or Globes, the film was another hit with critics and audiences alike, grossing over $33 million on an estimated $15 million budget.

His most recent effort, Three Billboards, saw him reunite with Rockwell and Harrelson and was led by Frances McDormand (Fargo) and once again was a critical and commercial smash, grossing over $160 million at the global box office and earning six Oscar nominations, including Best Picture. Rockwell and mcDormand both took home Oscars for their performances while McDonagh took home Golden Globes for Best Motion Picture — Drama and Best Original Screenplay.


25 Things You Missed From The Sonic Movie

If you are like us, chances are you grew up dropping on one of two sides of an epic playground feud. Super Mario Bros. or Sonic the Hedgehog.

If that battle started to involve the discussion of films, for the longest while, Mario won by default. The plumbers, at least had a big budget Hollywood film under their tool belts, because while the Super Mario movie was what one would call great by any stretch of the imagination.

Well now, Sonic has finally stepped up to the plate. And it’s really not too shabby. It’s got a great deal of heart, some bonkers acting from Jim Carrey what we saw in lots of details and Easter eggs, and that 1 trailer for lovers of the blur to sink their teeth into.

And there is a ton of things in this movie. So much in fact that people could catch them all. Luckily, we were able to spot quite a few that you might have missed. So we’re of course going to breakdown a few of those easter eggs in this movie.

This video is going to be just absolutely chalked full of spoilers. So I would recommend that you go check it out before watching this movie. All good? Cool.

Let’s get right into it!

  1. 4:55 "Quickest thing on Earth"? I believe the correct phrase is "fastest thing alive". And 300 MPH is definitely faster than any existing animal by a lot.

    The cheetah – the fastest land animal – can run at 75 MPH, and only in short bursts of about 30 seconds at most. Movie Sonic can run at 300 MPH comfortably, for much longer than 30 seconds. Meaning his limits are likely even further beyond this, such as when he goes into bullet-time.

    The peregrine falcon can’t even measure up. Its top speed is 242 MPH, and only when diving.

    In short, he’s still easily faster than that Bugatti hyper car. And much more maneuverable at high speeds as well.

  2. You forgot the Hill Top Zone reference from when he played ping pong. And also the "winged ring" that appears on his white headband.

  3. Picked up that the bed was a car, failed to notice the design of the car. Its the same design as the checkpoints from the games, this video missed quite a bit

  4. Well the race car bed is based off of the comics where sonic had a race car bed, the dog in the movie is named Ozzie the same name as Sonic’s dog in the comics

  5. The scene with Robotnik says he’ll be home by Christmas, you can hear the Robotnik theme from The Adventures of Sonic The hedgehog cartoon.

  6. Every time they talked about "The Mushroom planet" I thought it was a knock at Nintendo and the Super Mario Bro’s. As most of the time the Bro’s are saving Princess Peach and the Mushroom Kingdom.

  7. I can’t help but assume that the 300mph bit is a reference to Hot Wheels: World Race, and the AcceleRacers sequels: vehicles need to reach AT LEAST a speed of 300mph in order to enter either Highway 35, or the Racing Realms.

  8. What about when Sonic gets hit he drops his rings, scrambles to pick them up, even a single one. Or when he bounces on eggmans hover jet multiple times?? :B

  9. I like to believe that they were using San Francisco as a reference to Sonic Adventure 2. I looked it up, apparently SEGA based the level, City Escape, off of the real life city that is San Francisco.

  10. Sonic’s music from the games is peppered throughout the movie. It is most recognizable close to the end when the gang is back in Green Hills repainting the house.

  11. On the rooftop scene in San Fran, when all of the bullets & missles freeze, Sonic looks at his wrist while he taps his foot impatiently. This could be a reference to his idle animation in the classic games where he does the exact same thing.

  12. I like how Screen Rant have released countless articles (well a couple) willing Birds of Prey to our perform Sonic at the Box Office but still want to capitalise off of it. Integrity right there from Screen Rant
