2012 is really shaping up to be one of the best years in recent memory. Cogan's Trade is at the top of the list of films with incredible potential. Based on an acclaimed novel by George V. Higgins, it's about Jackie Cogan, a professional enforcer who investigates a heist that went down during a mob-protected poker game.
It will be written and directed by Andrew Dominik (The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, Chopper) and starring Brad Pitt, Javier Bardem, Mark Ruffalo, Sam Rockwell, Casey Affleck, Richard Jenkins, Ray Liotta, James Gandolfini, Vincent Curatola and Scoot McNairy. Now if that director, plot and cast doesn't get you excited, I don't know what will.
