‘Cogan’s Trade’ Images: Brad Pitt, Tony Soprano & A Goodfella

3 years ago by  

One of my own “most anticipated” films of 2012 is Cogan’s Trade, the new crime thriller from Andrew Dominik, a director whose last film, The Assassination of Jesse James, was a crowd-splitting piece of high-art but slow-burn crime drama cinema.

Dominik is said to be once again putting his own unique spin on typical genre fare with Cogan’s Trade - and while one can only guess as to what that “spin” will be, as you will see from today’s gallery of images, the film will at least have a very familiar lineup of onscreen mobsters.

Cogan’s Trade stars Brad Pitt as Jackie Cogan, a mob enforcer who is dispatched to investigate a heist that was sprung on a mob-protected poker game. Cogan’s investigation brings him down into the underworld and into contact with its various gangsters, thugs, and opposers (cops), as a Jackie, a working man, tries to do his dirty job.

Check out stars like The Sopranos‘ James Gandolfini and Goodfellas‘ Ray Liotta in Cogan’s Trade, with an additional photo showcasing Oscar-nominated actor Richard Jenkins (Let Me In):

At the very least, Cogan’s Trade looks like it will have some good, well-acted crime drama to offer fans of the genre. Should Dominik  happen to go in a more creative and artistic direction with the usual genre tropes…well, I wouldn’t personally be upset about that, but others may want to wait and see a trailer before they commit to seeing this one.

Cogan’s Trade still doesn’t have a specific release date; though fall 2012 is looking like the most likely prospect as of now.

  1. Say what you want about how artsy ‘Assassination of Jesse James’ was that movie had a great cast that was totally underutilized.

  2. No mention of the “True Romance” reunion? Brad Pitt cracked me up in that role and Gandolfini was absolutely brutal in it. I hope this movie turns out as good!

  3. I think this looks cool , I hope its good :)

  4. I cant wait..i love mafia movies..im stiill praying for a sopranos movie..that was the best show ever made for television.

    • The Sopranos may have been a good show but nothing could beat Seinfeld. How about a movie about that?

  5. This might be one of, if not, the biggest movie sleeper of the year. How come no one’s talking about this. Liotta needs a good comeback since the days of GoodFellas and Field of Dreams and the like. However, another good 2012 sleeper is Hunter Killer starring the vastly underrated Gerard Butler plus Sam Worthington in a movie about Iraq. How come nobody’s talking about Lincoln? Steven Spielberg, the best director not named Martin Scorsese or Chris Nolan of this generation, is directing and Daniel Day Lewis is starring.

  6. Boy he looks like Paul Phoenix in this.
