Hitman Comedy To launch Sundance Film Festival

The 2008 Sundance Film Festival will open on Jan 17 in Park City, featuring Playwright Martin McDonagh's first feature: "In Bruges."

The BBC has this report about the announcement. Here are excerpts:

In Bruges stars Brendan Gleeson and Colin Farrell as two Irish assassins sent to the Belgian city by employer Ralph Fiennes after bungling a job.

"In many ways In Bruges is a quintessential Sundance film," said festival director Geoffrey Gilmore.
"It's brutal, philosophical, funny, and totally original, he continued, describing 37-year-old McDonagh as "a masterful storyteller."
Run by Robert Redford's Sundance Institute, the annual event is America's leading showcase for low-budget, independent and specialty movies.
