First Look: Brad Pitt As Slick Haired Jackie Cogan in COGAN'S TRADE

Screen Daily has posted what appears to be the first official image of Brad Pitt in Cogan's Trade, the heist caper from Andrew Dominik based on George V. Higgins' novel of the same name that has now wrapped. In the movie Pitt plays Jackie Cogan, "a professional enforcer who investigates a heist that went down during a mob-protected poker game" believed to have been perpetrated by two junkies played by Scoot McNairy and Ben Mendelsohn. Full image after the jump... Described as a more serious 'Ocean's Eleven' and featuring a more sinisterly dark and humorous tone than The Assassination of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford, Dominik's movie co-stars Ray Liotta (the hustler Mark €œMarkie€ Trattman in charge of the game), Richard Jenkins (a lawyer in the know), James Gandolfini (a washed up hitman), Vincent Curatola (as an ex-convict seeking revenge) with additional roles for Sam Shepherd and Bella Heathcote. Sadly since I last wrote about the movie, Sam Rockwell seems to have dropped out. The Weinsteins will release the movie in early 2012. Story via The Playlist.
