A few "spy" pics of superstar Brad Pitt in costume on the set of director Andrew Dominik's latest movie, Cogan's Trade, leaked out just as the movie went into production in early March. Now, just as its been announced that the production has wrapped, the first official image of Pitt has been released.
Dominik, who directed Pitt in the critically acclaimed, but financially unsuccessful, 2007 Western The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, also wrote the screenplay for Cogan's Trade. The movie is based on the 1974 book of the same name by the late author George V. Higgins and centers around a mob enforcer (Pitt) who is tasked with investigating the robbery of a high-stakes poker game. Pitt is joined by his Jesse James co-star, Casey Affleck, as well as by an eclectic mix of actor's actors and tough-guy actors, including Sam Rockwell, Mark Ruffalo, Sam Shepard, Richard Jenkins, James Gandolfini and Ray Liotta. Cogan's Trade is tentatively slated to open March 3, 2012
