First Look: Colin Farrell, Brendan Gleeson and In Bruges directed by Martin McDonagh reunite with Banshees of Inisherin

They’ve had great success with their killer comedy In Bruges – now Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson have reunited with writer-director Martin McDonagh for their latest film.

The everal first look image has been released for The Banshees of Inisherin, which was filmed in Inishmore’s Achill and Aran Islands last summer, and will hit theaters this fall.

Movie fans hope the two male leads will have the same on-screen chemistry that they did playing assassins sent to the Belgian city to commit murder. This is the first time the two Dubliners have worked together since that 2008 film.

Set on an island off the west coast of Ireland, the film tells the story of two lifelong friends, Padraic (Farrell) and Colm (Gleeson), who feel stuck when Colm suddenly decides intend to end their friendship.

With the support of his sister Siobhan (Kerry Condon), who, along with local police son Dominic (Barry Keoghan) have their own fears in the small island community, Padraic is confused and devastated as he tries to resume their relationship. But when Colm issues a shocking ultimatum, events begin to escalate.

The first images of the film have been released ahead of the film’s world premiere at the Venice Film Festival next month. The flashy festival is seen as an early launchpad for awards season.

This is McDonagh’s first time filming in Ireland, although many of his plays have been made here. The director’s final film, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, won an Oscar for its main stars Frances McDormand and Sam Rockwell.

McDonagh has revealed he wants to bring his two leading men back together for what he describes as “a breakup story” about their friendship.

“The pendulum swings wide with Brendan,” Farrell told Vanity Fair while working with his co-star again. “From the gentleness he can have to the divine rage he can unleash if need be. He was always digging deep, always asking the big questions.”

The film was shot on location on Achill Island in Co Mayo and Inishmore’s Aran Island during last summer, with the dramatic western landscape looming large in the film’s first stills.
