Martin McDonagh Getting His Own Festival Celebrating Him in Siberia

(via The Hollywood Reporter)

Having been a master at dark comedy for some time now, Martin McDonagh, is getting an entire festival in his honor. The writer/director of In Bruges and Seven Psychopaths as well as one of the most accomplished playwrights of our time having written and directed such plays as The Pillowman and A Behanding in Spokane will be honored in, of all places, Perm, Siberia in Russia.

Apparently, McDonagh is a big hit in Siberia and the local theater U Mosta is reportedly the only theater to stage all of his plays. The Martin McDonagh Festival will run from Oct. 7th-10th and feature performances and screenings of his plays and films.

So, you might want to get your plane tickets and passport for this.
