In 2007 one of the greatest cinematic adventures of the millenium was released in the shape of The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford. Not only did it possess one of the greatest titles ever devised but it was a gut-wrenching portrayal of America’s most celebrated outlaw and the demise that ultimately met him.
Of course not many people ended up watching it, but have no fear because the great cinematic team behind this celluloid behemoth are back together again. The film’s director Andrew Dominik and titular star Brad Pitt have reconvened to make Killing Them Softly with footage for the piece premiering at the Cannes film festival over the last few days.
And now it’s also time for a first teaser poster which you can devour below.
Killing Them Softly is adapted from the novel Cogan’s Trade by George V. Higgins and tells the tale of Jackie Cogan, a professional enforcer who investigates a heist that went down during a mob-protected poker game.
