The wait is almost over for fans of a sophomore collaboration between Brad Pitt and his 'Assassination Of Jesse James' director Andrew Dominik (it's been five years since that film and we were just celebrating the return of this excellent filmmaker). It's one of our most anticipated films of the year, and now The Weinstein Company has scheduled Dominik's "Cogan's Trade" for a September 21st release date which bodes well for a preview at Venice and the Toronto International Film Festival.

Late last night, the trailer for Whit Stillman's "Damsels In Distress" debuted, and for those who didn't catch it on the festival circuit last year, it was the first time they'd seen any new footage from the "Metropolitan" and "Barcelona" helmer in over a decade. By the time that 'Damsels' is released, nearly fourteen years will have passed since the release of Stillman's third film, "The Last Days Of Disco," a near-Malickian absence. While he's been absent for longer than most, he's far from alone. As we've discussed both last year, and last week, there's plenty of other filmmakers who have been missing in action for some time.

You can keep your Dark Knights and your Prometheuses because there's nothing we're looking forward to in the coming year more than "Cogan's Trade," the long-awaited third film from Australian helmer Andrew Dominik. The director showed an inordinate amount of promise with his debut, "Chopper," which helped bring Eric Bana to the world's attention, but few thought he'd follow it with a masterpiece on the level of "The Assassination Of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford," to this writer's mind one of the two or three best American movies of the 21st century so far.

Comic Crime Caper To Hit Theaters In Early 2012When Harvey Weinstein aggressively goes after something he usually gets it. Case in point. The Weinstein Company honcho has acquired domestic distribution rights to Aussie director Andrew Dominik's follow-up to “The Assassination Of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford” (a picture that won Brad Pitt one of his first major awards; 2007's Best Actor prize in Venice). Thanks to his new bevy of investors, Harvey has dollars and clout and apparently slapped down a $20 million dollar promise for promotion and advertising alone for Dominik's latest, "Cogan's Trade," a pretty weighty pledge for TWC.

Despite Rumors, Reps For Zoe Saldana and Josh Brolin Say The Two Actors Are Not InvolvedNeedless to say, we've been aching for a new film from Andrew Dominik who dropped the masterpiece "The Assassination Of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford" that was bungled by Warner Bros. and pretty much ignored by audiences (for shame). Well, for his next pic it looks like he's getting the Jesse James gang back together. Brad Pitt is already locked in and now, another actor from 'Assassination' is officially on board.
