Los Angeles: Brad Pitt will play a mobster in the comedic crime story "Cogan`s Trade," a project that reteams him with Andrew Dominik, his director of "The Assassination of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford."

Pitt`s character, Jackie Cogan, is a professional enforcer who investigates a heist that takes place during a high stakes poker game under protection of the mob.

Sources say Dominik is seeking to reunite some of his "Jesse James" actors for the independently financed ensemble movie, including Sam Rockwell and Casey Affleck. Also on the list are Mark Ruffalo and Javier Bardem.
