Brad Pitt is “Killing Them Softly”

The last time we saw Brad Pitt on the big screen was in “Moneyball,” where he played Oakland A’s manager Billy Beane. That role nabbed Pitt his third Oscar nomination of his acting career.

Pitt returns to the big screen Nov. 30, with “Killing Them Softly” a story about Jackie Cogan, a professional enforcer who investigates a heist that went down during a mob driven poker game.

Directing will be Andrew Dominik who is no stranger to Brad Pitt. “The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford” saw the director and actor duo at work, and the critics responded well. Dominik is fairly new when it comes to directing, with only one other movie that he has worked on called “Chopper” which was also critically acclaimed.

Pitt on the other hand is a veteran actor that seems to be surging in the industry. Over the last decade or so Pitt has given us superb performances in movies such as, Moneyball, Inglourious Basterds, Fight Club, Snatch, Burn After Reading, and many more. Pitt has challenged himself, and has wisely pared up with unique directors that put him in unique situations on screen.

“Killing Them Softly” has a strong male cast along with Pitt that includes, James Gandolfini (Sopranos) Ray Liotta (GoodFellas) and Richard Jenkins who stars in just about everything.

The film is already getting positive buzz, and will likely be another big time hit for Brad Pitt and company.
