Brad Pitt's latest movie Killing Them Softly is about to hit the cinemas.
It's directed by New Zealand born director Andrew Dominik, best known for his film Chopper, and despite a modest $15 million budget Mr Dominik still managed to attract some big names to the film, like Pitt, Ray Liotta and James Gandolfini.
Mr Dominik says he knew he wanted Pitt for the movie right from the start.
“Brad seemed like an obvious fit.”
Despite the stars Mr Dominik says his first attempt to get funding fell over.
“Hollywood is a place where people get screwed over so regularly that if you try to do people a favour they smell a rat and outsmart themselves."
The movie is a screwball comedy mixed with drama and plenty of violence.
It opens in New Zealand cinemas on October 18.
