Bella Heathcote Joins Brad Pitt In Cogan’s Trade

Deadline says that Australian actress Bella Heathcote has signed on for a supporting role in Cogan’s Trade. This would knock the actress out of the running for the lead role in Snow White & The Huntsman. Bella is currently filming Andrew Niccol's Now which stars Justin Timberlake, Amanda Seyfried, Cillian Murphy, Alex Pettyfer and Olivia Wilde.

HeatVision first reported on the project which has Brad Pitt attached in the lead role of Jackie Cogan. The film is based on the novel by George V. Higgins and will be directed by Andrew Dominik. The story centers on Jackie Cogan, a professional enforcer who investigates a heist that takes place during a high stakes poker game under protection of the mob.

Brad Pitt teamed up with director Andrew Dominik previously on excellent western drama The Assassination of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford. Other names that had been attached or interested include Sam Rockwell, Casey Affleck, Mark Ruffalo and Javier Bardem.
