Reports surfaced on Thursday that Brad and Angie might star in Ridley Scott's next film, The Counselor. The film is based on a script by none other than Cormac McCarthy (remember No Country for Old Men? Yeah, that level of greatness). And it gets even better: You won't believe who else might be on board for this monster project!
Deadline.com has the whole scoop on what may or may not be happening with The Counselor. Yes, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are considering parts in film, along with Michael Fassbender (is he in everything right now? Yes, yes he is!) and Javier Bardem. Wow. Just, wow.
Now here's the gist of the plot: An attorney gives drug dealing a shot, and things do not go well for him. Fassbender would play the attorney, Jolie would play the female lead and Javier Bardem? Yeah, he'd play the villain (of course -- did I already mention No Country for Old Men?).
With production supposedly starting in June, hopefully all of this will get wrapped up soon. Just the very idea of this cast makes me drool: Huge, huge potential for The Counselor. File this away for a while but don't forget it because this time next year, we'll be discussing how awesome the movie was. For now, we'll all have to be content with the buzz about The Counselor, and it's reaching deafening levels...
