For years, we have been waiting for director Andrew Dominik’s follow up to his 2007 movie The Assassination of Jesse James and it looks like the wait is about to be over. We have a new clip from his upcoming crime drama Killing Them Softly (via IGN) and star Brad Pitt explains exactly what the title of the film is all about.
After directing the underrated The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, Andrew Dominik is making his long-awaited return behind the camera with Cogan’s Trade. The crime drama, based on George V. Higgins‘ novel, centers on about a mob enforcer (Brad Pitt) investigating a heist during a mob-protected poker game.
The story is based on the life of Solomon Northup, a free, married and educated black man living in 1853 New York who was lured by a job offer in Washington D.C. only to be kidnapped by two unscrupulous slave hunters and sold into slavery.

Moneyball taps into the the real life conundrum of the Oakland A’s circa 2001, an underfunded baseball team plagued by their inability to win a single playoff series. Enters general manager Billy Beane (Brad Pitt) who revolutionizes the game by using computer-generated analysis.
Pitt will take on the role of a former CIA-operative-turned-ultimate-assassin who finds himself fighting special force teams across Europe to save the life of his handler and his handler’s family after they become the targets of a multinational corporation.
Brad Pitt is considered a pretty boy and therefore does not get the great respect that he deserves. Easily one of the best actors of his generation, Pitt is often seen more as a movie star than as an actor — but that is selling this quite remarkable actor far too short. I am here this week to set the record, as it were, straight. Here are his 10 best performances.
