"In Bruges" stars Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson reunite with writer-director Martin McDonagh for their latest project, "The Banshees Of Inisherin".
Set against the backdrop of the Irish Civil War in 1923, the new dark comedy sees two friends whose friendship comes to an abrupt halt.
The contented Pádraic (Farrell) is confused when his grumpy pal Colm (Gleeson) decides he doesn't want to continue to be friends with him anymore.
"I just don’t like you no more," he declares of the "boring" Pádraic and his miniature donkey.

UPDATE, Refresh for latest…: The Venice Film Festival has revealed a robust lineup for the 79th edition which runs from August 31-September 10 on the Lido. Scroll down for the full list of Competition titles which include new works from such directors as Darren Aronofsky, Alejandro G Inarritu, Todd Field, Andrew Dominik, Luca Guadagnino, Alice Diop, Joanna Hogg, Martin McDonagh, Jafar Panahi and Florian Zeller.

The Oscar-winning writer-director of "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri" tells Vanity Fair, "I wanted to tell a breakup story. This is about things getting inexorably worse from a simple, sad starting point."

McDonagh says, "I wanted to make something that someone who likes 'In Bruges' would go with, but that could be a little more, at least at the outset, odder or weirder—and definitely something different."
"The Banshees Of Inisherin", which also stars Barry Keoghan and Kerry Condon, will premiere at the Venice Film Festival before coming to TIFF next month. It will be released in theatres on October 21.
