Exclusive - Garrett Hedlund and Michael Pena Cast in John Michael McDonagh's War on Everyone
War on Everyone to be the director's next

Writer/Director John Michael McDonagh scored a big success in 2011 with his first film The Guard and looks set to repeat it with new comedy Calvary, in cinemas next week. But the filmmaker already has his sights set on his next project.

McDonagh has been talking about the script for War on Everyone for a few years now, mentioning it back when we interviewed him for The Guardand it seems it's finally coming to fruition. The story is said to be about 'two confrontational, totally corrupt cops in Alabama' and we've got the scoop on who will be playing them.

In our recent interview for Calvary, McDonagh said: "The next movie looks like it might go with Michael Pena and Garrett Hedlund about two corrupt cops in Texas." Confirming that it would indeed be War on Everyone, he goes on to talk about the stage that the film is at:

"They’re already attached to it, it’s just trying to get the financing you want to make the movie you want. I think we need about $8-10 million. Let’s say Calvary is a success, that’ll be a help. If Michael and Garrett have a film coming out that’s a success that’ll help and that will all get us the money hopefully to put the pieces together and add a few supporting actors that add financial value. So if we can get that it will probably happen in October/November 2014."

Expect more news on the film very soon. Pena is currently out with his Cesar Chavez movie and is the lead in a Mark Neveldine exorcism movie, Hedlund has a thriller with Mark Wahlberg from the writer of The Departed.

Calvary is in cinemas from the 11th of April 2014. Read our full interview with John Michael McDonagh here.
