Brad Pitt Has Ice Running Through His Veins as Jackie Cogan ... and If You Like Tony Soprano, You're Gonna Love This Movie!
The Weinstein Co. has released the 1st trailer for Andrew Dominik's "Killing Them Softly," formerly known as "Cogan's Trade," a totally bad ass crime flick starring Brad Pitt as "professional enforcer" Jackie Cogan.
The film also stars Ray Liotta from "Goodfellas" and James Gandolfini ... yes, Tony Soprano himself ... as New York Mickey, a cold blooded hitman. Richard Jenkins, who is always excellent, is in it, too, and so are Scott McNairy from Monsters and Ben Mendelsohn from The Dark Knight Rises. !
"Killing Them Softly" is based on George V. Higgins' crime novel "Cogan's Trade" and follows Brad Pitt's character Jackie Cogan, who is an enforcer investigating a heist that takes place during a high stakes poker game perpetrated by two junkies played by McNairy and Mendelsohn. Andrew Dominik (you may know some of his other work like Chopper or Assassination of Jesse James) both writes & directs the film which also features Casey Affleck and Sam Rockwell. The film first premiered at the Cannes Film Festival and it hits theatres on October 19th.
