Farrell: Script like 'slap in face'

Colin Farrell and Sam Rockwell star in Seven Psychopaths

Colin Farrell says reading the script for Seven Psychopaths was like getting a slap in the face.

The Hollywood star has teamed up with writer-director Martin McDonagh once again following the success of In Bruges.

Colin, 36, said: "Every now and then, writing jumps off the page. This one does that. It slaps you in the face, gives you a kick in the a*** and takes you on a wonderful ride."

He said he was delighted to team-up with Martin - who has directed and written the film - again.

"He has a particular way of stringing words together that has an insane effect on the imagination. There's an emotional core to everything he writes, the humour, the chaos, the violence, the quick-wittedness of dialogue," he said.

"And the characters are inspired by a truth - love of a pet, need to help a friend, the wish that a lover was closer, ambition."

Colin stars in the film alongside Abbie Cornish, Sam Rockwell, Christopher Walken and Woody Harrelson.
