A new poster has been released for Andrew Dominik's (Chopper, The Assassination of Jesse James) awesome looking mob film, Killing Them Softly. As you can see it features Brad Pitt wielding a shotgun.
The story follows a mob enforcer, played by Pitt, trying to track down three dumbass thieves who ripped off a high stakes card game. Ray Liotta also stars in the movie as the hustler running the poker game; as well as Richard Jenkins, as a lawyer with inside information; James Gandolfini as a washed up alcoholic hit man; and Vincent Curatola plays a middle-aged prison release seeking revenge. Sam Rockwell also has a role in the film.
Dominik is a solid director that tells great stories, I especially like his style of filmmaking. Killing Them Softly looks like it could end up being a classic mob film.
Here is the short synopsis:
Three dumb guys who think they’re smart rob a Mob protected card game, causing the local criminal economy to collapse. Brad Pitt plays the enforcer hired to track them down and restore order.
I've also included the trailer for the film below...
