Sam Rockwell has joined Andrew Dominik's crime caper Cogan's Trade, which is set to star Brad Pitt. The screenplay is being adapted from George V. Higgins' novel of the same name by Dominik himself.

Pitt will play a cop investigating a high stakes poker game held under the protection of mobsters. Quite a few other big name cast members have been banded about for this upcoming ensemble, including Josh Brolin, Bill Murray, Casey Affleck, Zoe Saldana, and Mark Ruffalo. At this time, only Pitt and Rockwell have been confirmed, though it is unclear which of the many characters Sam may end up playing.

Sam Rockwell and Brad Pitt last appeared together on screen in Andrew Dominik's The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford.
