Higgins novel plays write into Dominik's style. The novel is ripe with suspenseful stakes, heavy tension, corrosive humor and dialogue that jumps off the page. Dominik has penned the screenplay himself and based off his work on both his previous two films, the man knows his way with words and adapting from a novel.
Today's news informs us that Sam Rockwell has also signed on to play a undisclosed role. Rockwell is a invisible actor. The guy has nailed everything he's done to the wall with the utmost precision. Having him sign on to Andrew Dominik's latest is a sure treat. But that is not all, also rumored to have roles in "Cogan's Trade" are Casey Affleck, Javier Bardem, Josh Brolin, Mark Ruffalo, Bill Murray and Zoe Saldana. No definite report has surfaced on the six names mentioned, but here's to hoping that the rumors are true.
"Cogan's Trade" was originally slated to begin shooting this month in New Orleans, but it appears the shooting date is closer to March now. The salty crime drama should be hitting theaters come 2012, but might take as long as 2013 depending on how this film is shopped around by Inferno Entertainment. The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford took a long time to finally see a release and hopefully the same won't happen this time.
