27. "Cogan's Trade"
In theaters: 2012 TBD
Director: Andrew Dominik
Cast: Brad Pitt, James Gandolfini, Richard Jenkins, Ray Liotta, Sam Shepard, Scoot McNairy
Lowdown: Jackie Cogan (Pitt) is a scout for a hit man who finds himself caught up in a investigation into a robbery of the mob he works for.
Drew McWeeny says: Are you kidding? The last time Dominik and Pitt worked together, they made 2007's "The Assassination Of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford." And this is based on a George Higgins novel, the same guy who wrote the novel that inspired "The Friends Of Eddie Coyle," one of the great crime films of the '70s. With that cast in place, the expectation is that we're going to get something explosive.
