Sam Rockwell signs on for Cogan's Trade with Brad Pitt

01.05.2011

The potentially all-star cast of COGAN'S TRADE just got even all-stari-ier with the addition of Sam Rockwell to the mix, joining the ensemble headlined by Brad Pitt.

The Andrew Dominik-directed film focuses on a heist that takes place during a high stakes poker game run by the mob, and the rest of the cast is rumored to include Josh Brolin, Javier Bardem, Bill Murray, Mark Ruffalo, Zoe Saldana and Domink, Rockwell and Pitt's ASSASSINATION OF JESSE JAMES cohort Casey Affleck, though none are officially confirmed as of yet.

Rockwell is currently also signed onto Jonah Hill's comedy THE SITTER, will appears in COWBOYS AND ALIENS and is looking for an Oscar in Hillary Swank's CONVICTION as a wrongly imprisoned man.

COGAN is shaping up to be a project to watch, and let's hope that cast becomes more than just a wishlist.

Extra Tidbit: Bill Murray? Excellent.

This is the first news I've seen of this movie...

...WOW. I love Sam Rockwell. He was great in Moon, he was great in The Green Mile, heck, he was even great in Charlie's F***ing Angels! Of course I'm going to see all the movies he's about to shoot. :P

Based off the premise, I would love to see the cast come together.

Rockwell is great in anything and I can't wait to see Conviction (would love to see him get nominated). Rockwell was fantastic in the movie The Winning Season. A great underrated movie with a great performance from Rockwell.

I'll watch anything Andrew Dominik does. He could direct a sequel to BABY'S DAY OUT and I'd watch it.

Generic Heist, Awesome Cast

I hope with this director and this cast it's a better movie than it sounds on paper!
