Brad Pitt on Tuesday scotched rumours that his wedding to the other half of Hollywood's hottest couple, Angelina Jolie, would take place in August.

Pitt also said his partner would not join him on the red carpet in Cannes later Tuesday for the premiere of the blood-drenched drama "Killing Them Softly" in which he stars as a hit man.

"She's not here right now. She's prepping for a movie that starts pretty soon," the 48-year-old actor, sporting shaggy blond-tinted hair and a goatee, told reporters after a press screening of Andrew Dominik's movie.

Asked if he planned to act in another film alongside 36-year-old Jolie, he replied: "Actually, I'd love to."

"We actually really, truly have no date" for the wedding that the couple announced in April and which will come after six children and years of unwedded coupledom, he said.

Pitt and Jolie became close on the set of 2005 film "Mr. and Mrs. Smith." They have three biological children together and adopted three others.

"Killing Them Softly" is one of 22 films vying for the festival's coveted Palme d'Or top prize, to be awarded on Sunday.

The film, which got a warm reception at an early press preview, features Pitt as a contract killer working for a mob syndicate run like any major US corporation, complete with brutal cost-cutting to cope with the recession.

The action unfolds just as the subprime mortgage crisis begins to wreak havoc on financial markets at the end of 2008, in the thick of the US presidential election campaign.

The picture reunites Pitt with New Zealand-born Andrew Dominik, who directed him in 2007's "The Assassination of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford", and couples highly stylised violence with a nostalgic American soundtrack.

Pitt as the mob enforcer Jackie Cogan is called in when two bumbling thieves knock over a high-stakes poker game among local gangsters.

His contact with the organisation, a straight-laced squeamish attorney played by Richard Jenkins, passes on the mobsters' orders and later has to inform the killer that his fee for a triple murder has been slashed by a third.

As they haggle, a television broadcasts Obama delivering his acceptance speech in Chicago in which he outlines his vision for a new America.

"America's not a country," a cynical Pitt drawls. "It's a business."
