It may be months off yet, but Sundance is already getting its ducks in order--starting with the opening night movie.
This year's Sundance Film Festival will kick off the festivities with In Bruges, a comedy by Tony-nominated irish playwright Martin McDonagh, starring Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson as flubbing hitmen and Ralph Fiennes as their boss. In Bruges is McDonagh's feature film directing debut.
The 2008 Sundance Film Festival will take place in Park City, Utah, from January 17 to 27.
