Sam Rockwell For Cogan’s Trade
Sam Rockwell is the latest actor to join the cast of Andrew Dominik’s Cogan’s Trade. It’ll mark the second collaboration of the pair after the excellent The Assassination Of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford which already has Assassination alumnus Brad Pitt on board.
The story is an adaptation of George V Higgins crime novel in which an enforcer for the mob has to investigate a heist at a high-stakes poker game. There’s no word as yet on what role Rockwell will play in the movie. It’s an ensemble cast and there’s rumours that Casey Affleck (Robert Ford himself no less) could also be on join the cast. Could this be a cast reunion for 2011?
Regardless, it’s good to see Rockwell working with Dominik again and it’ll be interesting to see how Dominik follows the assured film making he displayed in Assassination. No details on filming as yet but we’ll keep you posted.
