Andrew Dominik on the set of The Weinstein Company's
2. This is Pitt's second film with Dominik, their first being "The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford" (2007), a methodic Western that was critically praised but dismally attended, grossing just $3.9 million on an estimated budget of $30 million. "Killing Them Softly" also happens to be Dominik's first film since that box office bomb. "You know, it's still labeled a loser. In fact, Dominik couldn't get a job for several years afterward because it got labeled that way after the opening weekend. But then we always knew, 'That one's a fine-wine film. It's gonna age well,' Pitt told Interview magazine.
