'Killing Them Softly' with Brad Pitt Gets a Very Slick Minimalist Poster
We've already gotten a first look at the adaptation of Cogan's Trade from director Andrew Dominik, which is a bit of a reunion for the collaborators from The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford as it stars Brad Pitt, Casey Affleck and Sam Rockwell. Now the film is going by the title Killing Them Softly (Dominik said "Cogan's Trade kind of sounds like a Clint Eastwood title to me from 1972."), and a slick new poster straight out of the Cannes Film Festival (see all of Alex's coverage right here) has shown up. It doesn't need any star power to help, and the minimalist poster isn't even in color. Look!
Here's the first poster for Andrew Dominik's Killing Them Softly from Moviefone:
Killing Them Softly, based on George V. Higgins' crime novel Cogan's Trade, follows Jackie Cogan (Brad Pitt), an enforcer who investigates a heist that takes place during a high stakes poker game perpetrated by two junkies played by Scoot McNairy (Monsters) and Ben Mendelsohn (Animal Kingdom). Andrew Dominik both writes and directs the film which also features Casey Affleck, Sam Rockwell, Richard Jenkins (Let Me In), James Gandolfini ("The Sopranos"), Ray Liotta (GoodFellas) and more. The film premieres at the Cannes Film Festival this month, and will hit theaters on September 21st later this fall. Interested?
