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.

Filming Begins In Louisiana In MarchOf all the projects announced in 2010 -- "The Dark Knight Rises," the untitled Terence Malick, "Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son" -- none excited us quite as much as "Cogan's Trade." The long-awaited return of Andrew Dominik -- who made a scorching debut with "Chopper" before returning with one of the best, if not the best, film of the decade in "The Assassination of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford" -- is an adaptation of the pulp crime novel by George V. Higgins (the author of "The Friends Of Eddie Coyle,)" about a mob enforcer trying to track down the thieves who ripped off a high stakes card game.

Newcomer Bella Heathcote is having a good week. Less than a day after it was revealed that the actress was among the frontrunners to land the plum, titular role in "Snow White & The Huntsman" (more on that in a second) now comes word that she will be appearing in two very high-profile upcoming projects.

Casey Affleck, Javier Bardem, Sam Rockwell, Mark Ruffalo All Circling, Pitt Could Also Star In 'The Gray Man' We're not going to lie, we're a little aroused right now. One of The Playlist's favorite films of recent years (and this writer's very favorite of the last decade), "The Assassination Of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford," saw Australian director Andrew Dominik come on leaps and bounds from his excellent debut "Chopper," and produce a lyrical, profound, beautifully-acted, eye-meltingly beautiful Western for the ages. Unfortunately, audiences stayed away from the nearly-three hour film in droves, and it's taken some time for Andrew Dominik to get another project going.
