We just showed you some images from Cogan’s Trade, Andrew Dominik‘s long-awaited follow-up to The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford. Now we’ve got a release date for the film, which will hit theaters on September 21. Given the movie’s pedigree, that suggests the film will premiere either at the Toronto or Venice Film Festival before landing in US theaters.

Cogan’s Trade features Brad Pitt as the title character, a mob enforcer who is on the trail of a couple junkies (Scoot McNairy and Ben Mendelsohn) who robbed a mob-backed card game. Richard Jenkins, Ray Liotta, James Gandolfini,  and Sam Shepard are all in the cast as well. Read More »

It just so happens each has a bit of news involving the long standing champion in the battle of apathetic filmmaking, the sequel. Sequel Bits won’t be a daily occurrence (like the week old Superhero Bits) but sometimes, when there’s some interesting sequel news that might not deserve its own article, it’s easiest just to round it up. So, after the jump read about:

  • How John Lasseter directed scenes from Cars 2 on an iPad
  • The Weinstein Company setting release dates for Scary Movie 5 and Halloween 3D
  • Tyrese Gibson‘s hilarious notion Steven Spielberg would direct a Transformers 4
