Ben Wheatley and Cillian Murphy on 'Free Fire'

Scannain recently interviewed director Ben Wheatley and actor Cillian Murphy at the Dublin International Film Festival about their new black comedy thriller Free Fire.

1978 – Boston, Massachusetts. Justine (Brie Larson) has brokered a meeting between two IRA men (Cillian Murphy and Michael Smiley) and gang led by two men (Armie Hammer and Sharlto Copley) who are selling them a stash of guns. Everything seems to be going smoothly — until shots are fired during the handover and pandemonium ensues.

Over the course of filming they fired 6,000 rounds of ammunition. See the official trailer here.

The film goes on general release in Ireland on 31 March 2017, and in the US on 21 April.
