Richard Jenkins Dealt Into Wise Guy Card Game

Tuesday, February 8 by

Richard Jenkins, from that one movie with the girl, is joining Brad Pitt and Sam Rockwell in the mob card game movie Cogan’s Trade. The movie appears to be covering vaguely The Sting-like territory, with Pitt as “a professional enforcer who investigates a heist that takes place during a high-stakes poker game held under the protection of the mob.” Jenkins will appear as “a lawyer who relays inside information about the card game.” The Sting connection is cemented by the fact that Variety refers to the movie as a “caper.”

The whole card game is being helmed by Andrew Dominik, who also directed (deep breath) The Assassination of Jesse James By the Coward Robert Ford, which means it will probably be a totally underrated classic for years to come (seriously, Jesse James is better than No Country for Old Men).
