Director Andrew Dominik hasn’t made a film since the marvelous western The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, which came out all the way back in 2007. His newest film, previously titled Cogan’s Trade, but now titled Killing Them Softly (wtf?) is set to come out on September 21st, 2012 and we have the first clip from the film, thanks to Bad Ass Digest.
The clip is very basic and doesn’t really contain much of any dialogue, yet it still rocks! Slaine and Sam Shepard are seen (or actually unseen) ruffing up Ray Liotta and the camera moves so effortlessly.
Aside from the odd title change, I think Killing Them Softly is something to keep an eye on.
It also stars Brad Pitt, Max Casella, Richard Jenkins and James Gandolfini.
