Brad Pitt has reportedly signed up to star in 'Cogan's Trade'.

The hunky actor is said to be keen to work alongside Andrew Dominik - who directed 'The Assassination of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford', in which Brad played the titular character - for a second time, and has agreed to work on the filmmaker's new project.

Crime-based comedy 'Cogan's Trade' is to be a film adaptation of the popular George V Higgins novel, which sees mob enforcer Cogan (Pitt) investigating the robbery of a Mafia-run poker game.

With the 'Ocean's Eleven' actor already signed up to appear in the movie, it is also thought his 'Jesse James' co-stars Casey Affleck and Sam Rockwell could also be persuaded to join the line-up.

Oscar-winning star Javier Bardem and Mark Ruffalo are also believed to be in talks to appear in the heist comedy.

Elsewhere, Brad Pitt is also said to be considering a role in the upcoming film adaptation of Mark Greaney novel 'The Gray Man'.
