Sleek-haired Pitt goes the gangster way in new film

London: Hollywood superstar Brad Pitt is into the gangster mode these days with sleeked-back black hair and shades for his new film `Cogan`s Trade`.

The 47-year-old actor, who is playing a mob enforcer investigating a heist during a high stakes poker game, looked as sharp as ever on the sets in New Orleans, reported a daily.

Shooting began last week and sources say the star is happy to be back in New Orleans, where he and partner Angelina Jolie share a house in the French Quarter.

Pitt smiled and waved at fans as he turned up on the first morning and was in high spirits.

"Brad arrived on the set bright and early. He was in a great mood and sipped a coffee while chatting with the cast and the crew," said a source on the set.

Jolie, who is working on her directorial debut in Eastern Europe, is planning to join him, along with their sizeable brood, in a few days.
