Icon Film Distribution is pleased to confirm the UK and Irish cinema release of John Michael McDonagh’s WAR ON EVERYONE this September.
Award-winning British writer-director McDonagh crosses the globe for his much-anticipated third film, a jet-black action comedy starring Alexander Skarsgård, Michael Peña and Theo James.
In Albuquerque, New Mexico, Terry Monroe (Skarsgård) and Bob Bolaño (Peña) are two corrupt cops who set out to blackmail and frame every criminal unfortunate enough to cross their path. Things take a sinister turn, however, when they try to intimidate someone who is more dangerous than they are. Or is he?
Known for his distinctively witty sensibility and confrontational humour, McDonagh previously wrote and directed the acclaimed drama Calvary, starring Brendan Gleeson, and offbeat comedy The Guard, also starring Gleeson alongside Don Cheadle, which became a worldwide sleeper hit.
WAR ON EVERYONE stars Alexander Skarsgård, Michael Peña and Theo James. Joining in supporting roles are Tessa Thompson, Malcolm Barrett, Caleb Landry Jones, Paul Reiser, Stephanie Sigman and David Wilmot .
WAR ON EVERYONE will be released nationwide in the UK and Ireland on September 30, 2016
