I am perfectly normal says 'dark' director of 'Psychopaths'

'In Bruges' filmmaker Martin McDonagh has insisted he is perfectly normal – despite the dark subject matter he conjures up.

The director's new film 'Seven Psychopaths' is a gruesome black comedy full of damaged characters and graphic violence.

But McDonagh said at the film's London premiere: "I'm really nice. I'm normal, because I get all the s*** out there and let other people deal with it."

The director enlisted Irish star Colin Farrell, who he worked with on 'In Bruges', to play a boozy writer in the film.

US star Sam Rockwell plays an out-of-work actor who kidnaps dogs then returns them to their owners to receive the reward money. Rockwell said of McDonagh: "He's a genius. He's a beautiful, amazing writer."
