Abbie Cornish has praised her co-star Colin Farrell's work ethic on the set of Seven Psychopaths.

The 36-year-old actor is reuniting with In Bruges director Martin McDonagh for the crime-based comedy and co-star Abbie Cornish explained that Farrell was “totally in the moment” while shooting the movie.

Speaking to, Cornish said: ''Colin Farrell is an awesome actor to work with, he's constantly experimenting and nothing is ever the same.

"Colin, he's totally in the moment. He stretches himself as an actor and he goes the whole nine yards whatever scene it is, you can tell that he's totally invested. His energy level is really high. He's such a lovely, charismatic, caring guy.

''I think that energy on set is such a nice thing to have around, and him being the lead character on Seven Psychopaths, it kind of drives the whole film.''

The movie, which tells the story of struggling writer Marty (Farrell), who dreams of finishing his screenplay entitled Seven Psychopaths, also stars Sam Rockwell, Christopher Walken and Woody Harrelson.
