Check Out Brad Pitt As A Mob Enforcer In Killing Them Softly

Submitted by on August 6, 2012 – 10:04 am2 Comments

Brad Pitt casts aside his golden boy image to play mob enforcer Jackie Cogan in the upcoming Killing Them Softly. Check out the trailer below:

The film is helmed by Andrew Dominik, who was behind the brilliant and epic The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, also starring Pitt as an unhinged  but deep killer. That pedigree tells me this film is definitely in good hands- although that last film did benefit greatly from the cinematographer of the legendary Roger Deakins.

Dominik also seems to have gangster movie royalty in the movie, also featuring Sopranos alums James Gandolfini, Vincent Curatola, and Max Casella, not to mention Ray Liotta (Henry Hill!).

Pitt does drop the title phrase in the trailer, but don’t expect any soulful Roberta Flack tunes; the preview does, however, offer a chilling montage set to Johnny Cash‘s “When the Man Comes Around.”

What do you think of the first look of Killing Them Softly?
