Heads Up: The Assassination Of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford

Apparently the production has been troubled - it was supposed to be out at the end of September...2006! - but now Brad Pitt is supposedly overseeing the final editting. Still looks cool to me though, and with 3:10 To Yuma and PT Anderson's There Will Be Blood also coming out before the end of the year, the dark & gritty Western is looking at a major comeback, a possible fulfillment of Unforgiven's promise 15 years ago.

The cast is great; you only get to really see Brad Pitt, Casey Affleck, and Sam Rockwell in the trailer, but they're joined by Mary-Louise Parker and Zooey Deschanel, as well as great character actors like Sam Shepard, Ted Levine, Michael Parks, Jeremy Renner & Garret Dillahunt.
