The one with the bunny

The first trailer from Seven psychopaths, a new movie by Irish filmmaker Martin McDonagh (remember In Bruges) in which Tom Waits stars alongside Woody Harrelson, Colin Farrell and Christopher Walken:

The film - a black comedy - is set to be released on October 12, 2012 in both the US and the UK.

From Wikipedia:

Marty (Farrell) is a struggling writer who dreams of finishing his screenplay, "Seven Psychopaths." Billy (Rockwell) is Marty’s best friend, an unemployed actor and part time dog thief, who wants to help Marty by any means necessary. All he needs is a little focus and inspiration.
Hans (Walken) is Billy’s partner in crime: a religious man with a violent past. Charlie (Harrelson) is the psychotic gangster whose beloved dog Billy and Hans have just stolen. Charlie is unpredictable and extremely violent and wouldn’t think twice about killing anyone or anything associated with the theft. Marty is going to get all the focus and inspiration he needs, just as long as he lives to tell the tale.
(I have no further details about the role of Tom Waits, apart from the fact he plays the part of Zacharia who holds a bunny...)

Looks good

Obviously this is just another tiny cameo role for Tom. However, looks like a great ensemble movie, so I'm definitely going to check it out

Great cast. Definitely looking forward to this.

While I'm very excited about this, it bears clarification that Martin McDonagh is a playwright, who has made a film. A few years ago there was talk of him collaborating with Tom, and Tom's other long time collaborator Robert Wilson.

Not to say that McDonagh is less or more of a talent for being a playwright rather than a filmmaker, I just wanted to clarify the issue.
