Brad Pitt's Cogan's Trade is now called Killing Them Softly
Hot off the heels of Katherine Bigelow changing her Bin Laden movie from KILL BIN LADEN to ZERO DARK THIRTY, Andrew Dominik has changed his New Orleans crime film, COGAN’S TRADE to KILLING THEM SOFTLY. Although I like Bigelow’s change, I can’t say I’m impressed with the title “Killing Them Softly”. It conjures up memories of the Roberta Flack song ‘Killing Me Softly’, which was later made famous by The Fugees in the late 90’s. The movie features Brad Pitt as a a low-life mob enforcer on the hunt for a couple of junkie thieves that stole from the wrong mob game. I liked ‘Cogan’s Trade’, so hopefully they’ll go back to it or come up with something better.
KILLING THEM SOFTLY stars Brad Pitt, Ray Liotta, James Gandolfini, Richard Jenkins, Ben Mendelsohn, Scoot McNairy, Max Casella, Sam Shepard and Bella Heathcote. The Andrew Dominik directed film will hit theaters some time in 2012.
