John Michael McDonagh's Calvary follow-up War on Everyone stars shooting - see the first pic

From The Guard to Calvary, writer/director John Michael McDonagh has been turning heads ever since his feature debut with Brendan Gleeson as a rather... unusual cop in the back arse of Ireland.

Now he's heading across the pond for his first Yankee production, a film called War on Everyone which is about two corrupt cops who get more than they bargained with they cross the path of a dangerous criminal. Back when we spoke to McDonagh for Calvary in 2014, he seemed pretty sure the film was going to start shooting later that year with Garrett Hedlund and Michael Pena set to star.

Well he was a third right, with the shoot in New Mexico only kicking off now and the onscreen team of Pena and Swedish star Alexander Skarsgard. Honestly, he's a better addition than the much younger Hedlund, and with better acting chops.Other folks along for the ride include Tessa Thompson, Caleb Landry Jones, Paul Reiser and Irish actor David Wilmot. Here's what McDonagh had to say at the start of production, in his own unique style:

"It gives me great pleasure to declareWar on Everyonewith my fellow combatants, Michael Peña and Alexander Skarsgård. We look forward to the battles ahead, and we will go on with a spirit that fears nothing. That’s Homer, by the way."

The production has also released the first still of its two anti-heroes, which might give you an idea of character dynamic as well.

McDonagh is known for his short shoots so this could easily be finished with post-production a few months and creeping towards release by late 2015. More as we get it.
