Video: First Look at Jamie Sives and Colin Farrell in Danis Tanovic's "Triage"

AWESOME News tonight again; what a great weekend we are having! Thanks to Anya over at Art & Culture Maven blog, we can now see the first footage from Danis Tanovic's "Triage" starring Colin Farrell and Jamie Sives. In the clip you can see an attack scene where the photographers are caught right in the middle of the fighting, then a very intense moment with the fantastic Jamie Sives as the photographer who has had enough. Oh man I cant wait to see this, Colin looks amazing too, just brilliant stuff.
Thanks so much Anya!
Update: Thanks so much to Pete for sending me the video seen below

As a reminder, here is what Jamie Sives had to say about working with Colin Farrell on Triage:

In Triage, Colin and I play photographers. I'm not too sure about the term 'photojournalist.' The photographers who work in war zones don't write anything. They take photos and send them home. These guys have to go where journalists dare not. Many war correspondents, although very brave, can cover most wars from the rooftop of a hotel but the photographers have to get right in there to get the shots. They sometimes work in tandem with a print journalist, but more often than not, they work alone."

"We had an amazing guy called Damir Sagolj as our advisor and he had quite incredible stories on the places he worked and the things he witnessed. I happen to admire serious news journalism. They're committed to providing the world with the truth, and I'd hate to imagine just what greater liberties the powerful people of the world would take if journalists didn't question or expose them."

"Incidentally, I also think some of them make great screenwriters. Some of my favourites like Raymond Chandler and Billy Wilder were journos."
