The team of Brad Pitt and Andrew Dominik, who previously worked together on the exceptional Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, will be collaborating again on a crime drama called Cogan’s Trade. Brad Pitt just confirmed his role in the film where he was previously only in negotiations. Jesse James co-star Casey Affleck will also take a role in the film.

The film is based on the novel of the same name by George V Higgins and it:

…tracks the career of Jackie Coogan in a gangland version of law and order. For Cogan is an enforcer; and when the Mob’s rules get broken, he gets hired to ply his trade murder. Cogan is called in when a high-stake card game, under the protection of the Mob, is heisted. Expertly, with a ruthless businessman’s efficiency, a shrewd sense of other people’s weaknesses, and a style as cold as his stare, Cogan moves with reliable precision to restore the status quo as ill-conceived capers and double-dealing shenanigans erupt into high-voltage violence.

The film also has a list of very attractive names surrounding the project, including Josh Brolin, Zoe Saldana, Sam Rockwell, Bill Murray, Javier Bardem and Mark Ruffalo. The film could begin shooting as early as March in New Orleans, the book is set in Boston but Affleck had suggested that the events of the film would alter geographically.

This sounds like a great film for the Jesse James guys to regroup with and could definitely be one to look forward to in the next year or so.
