Release Date for Andrew Dominik‘s KILLING THEM SOFTLY Starring Brad Pitt Moved Again

Adapted from George V. Higgins' 1974 novel Cogan's Trade, Killing Them Softly also stars Ray Liotta and James Gandolfini. The film garnered positive praise at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival and is scheduled to hit theaters this October.
Set in New Orleans, Louisiana, Killing Them Softly follows professional enforcer, Jackie Cogan (Pitt), who investigates a heist that occurs during a high stakes, mob-protected, poker game.
Killing Them Softly stars Brad Pitt (Troy), Scoot McNairy (Monsters), Ben Mendelsohn (Animal Kingdom), Ray Liotta (Goodfellas), Richard Jenkins (The Visitor), with James Gandolfini (The Sopranos) and Sam Shepard (Blackthorn) among others.
Although already delayed once this year, and recently scheduled to premiere in theaters on October 16th, The Weinstein Company has now moved the film's release date to November 30th, 2012. This change is apparently in an effort to avoid competition with Paramount's Paranormal Activity 4 and another crime thriller Alex Cross starring Tyler Perry.
