The dark comedy feature is considered to be a quintessential Sundance film for its philosophy and originality.

A darkly comic tale of two hitmen whose views on life and death get skewed when they come to the titular city, "In Bruges" has been selected to kick off next year's Sundance Film Festival, slated to be held on January 17, the organizers have announced.

"In many ways 'In Bruges' is a quintessential Sundance film - it's brutal, philosophical, funny and totally original," Festival director Geoffrey Gilmore remarked.

"There is a purity to these characters, what with their humor and how they view the world. Yes, they bring death to people, but they're not black-and-white" said Colin Farrell who plays the character of Ray, one of the two hitmen.

The movie, a production of Focus Features, marks the full-length feature directorial and writing debut of Martin McDonagh, who is known more as an award-winning playwrights. Cast as the leading actors are Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson with Ralph Fiennes, Clemence Poesy, and Jeremie Renier co-starring.
