Brad Pitt will shoot Cogan's Trade in New Orleans
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
Brad Pitt is heading back to New Orleans this coming March to shoot his upcoming film COGAN’S TRADE directed by Andrew Dominik. The film has been described as a “mobster comedy” where Brad Pitt will play Jackie Cogan who is an enforcer looking into a robbery that takes place during a high stakes poker game where the mob is involved. COGAN’S TRADE is also supposed to star: Casey Affleck, Josh Brolin, Javier Bardem, Bill Murray, Mark Ruffalo, Sam Rockwell and Zoe Saldana but not all of these stars are confirmed. COGAN’S TRADE is set for a release sometime in 2012.
We all know how much Brad Pitt loves New Orleans but he hasn’t been back to film there since his 2008 film THE CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON, so I’m sure he’s excited to be back in town. Plus he’s going to be collaborating with Andrew Dominik again who he worked with on THE ASSASSINATION OF JESSE JAMES BY THE COWARD ROBERT FORD, which is an awesome movie so I have high hopes for COGAN’S TRADE.
