Oscar-winner Frances McDormand (‘Fargo,’ ‘This Must Be the Place,’ ‘Moonrise Kingdom’) is set to take the lead in ‘Three Billboards Outside Of Ebbing, Missouri,’ the next directorial effort from ‘In Bruges’ and ‘Seven Psychopaths’ writer-director Martin McDonagh.

Talking to The Guardian, McDonagh teased the plot. “It’s about a 50-year-old woman whose daughter is murdered and she goes to war with the police in her home town, because she thinks they are more interested in torturing black people than getting justice.”

McDonagh is aiming to shoot the film early next year, when he finishes up on his latest play, ‘Hangmen,’ telling the story of England’s second best-known executioner on the day that the British government announces it has abolished capital punishment.
