Film Adaptation of Cogan's Trade to be Set in New Orleans

Cogan's Trade by George V. Higgins
More information about the book

Last month we reported that Brad Pitt had signed on to play mob enforcer Jackie Cogan in a film adaptation of George V. Higgins' 1974 crime novel Cogan's Trade. The film was widely expected to be set in Boston (the setting for the book), but now Scene Louisiana is reporting that Pitt and company will shoot the film in New Orleans (where the actor maintains a residence).

Andrew Dominik will direct his own screenplay adaptation, with location filming expected to begin next March. Pitt's co-stars haven't yet been announced, but the article states the ensemble cast may include Casey Affleck, Josh Brolin, Javier Bardem, Bill Murray, Mark Ruffalo, Sam Rockwell and Zoe Saldana.
