‘Killing Them Softly’ moved back

Weinstein Co. shifts release date to Nov. 30

The Weinstein Co. has shifted the U.S. opening of Andrew Dominik’s drama “Killing Them Softly” back six weeks to Nov. 30 to make it more visible as a possible awards contender.

“Softly” premiered in May at the Cannes Film Festival. TWC had originally set the release for Sept. 21, then moved it this summer to Oct. 21.

Brad Pitt stars as a professional enforcer investigating a heist that occurs during a mob-protected poker game. Film, based on the George V. Higgins novel “Cogan’s Trade” while in development, also features Scoot McNairy, Ben Mendelsohn, Ray Liotta, Richard Jenkins, James Gandolfini and Vincent Curatola.

LD Entertainment has also set a Nov. 30 opening for Marcus Dunstan’s horror suspenser “The Collection.”
