In preparation for its October release, a new international poster for the crime comedy "Killing Them Softly" has been unveiled.

The Andrew Dominik film is adapted from a George V. Higgins novel and is set in New Orleans. The story follows professional enforcer Jackie Cogan ( Brad Pitt) who investigates a heist that occurs doing a high stakes, mob-protected, poker game.

Also joining Brad in the cast are James Gandolfini, Sam Rockwell, Richard Jenkins, Bella Heathcote, Vincent Curatola, Ray Liotta, Scoot McNairy, Ben Mendelsohn and Linara Washington.

MTV recently spoke with up and coming actor McNairy, who plays one of the thieves in the movie, about how the movie relates to today's audience though it was based on a book written and set in the 1970s.

He said, "It's definitely got a political backdrop in the book, and [Andrew Dominik] has obviously modernized it and brought it up to speed with the McCain-Obama times and the Bush administration and all that. In the book, it's set in Boston. We made it in anywhere in industrial America. It's not specific as to where we are. There's an Australian in the movie with an Australian accent. I have a Boston accent. I think Brad's got more of a Chicago accent. It's a whole group of different people in this industrial world."
