Director Andrew Dominik seems intent on getting the Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford gang back together for his next film, Cogan’s Trade.  Some sleuthing linked Casey Affleck to Trade earlier today; now co-star Sam Rockwell is similarly rumored, while Brad Pitt has signed on to the project in a more official capacity. According to Heat Vision, Pitt will play Jackie Cogan, “a professional enforcer who investigates a heist that takes place during a high stakes poker game under protection of the mob.”

Of course, starring in Jesse James isn’t a contractual necessity.  Mark Ruffalo and Javier Bardem are likewise under consideration for a role in the film.  Hit the jump for a look at where Trade fits into Pitt’s schedule alongside the script for The Gray Man.

With Moneyball and Tree of Life in post-production, Pitt has reportedly not decided on his next project. »
