Vulture is reporting that Ridley Scott’s THE COUNSELOR, based on a script penned by author Cormac McCarthy currently speeding its way towards a June start date, just got a whole lot bigger. The outlet reveals that Angelina Jolie is eying a role (albeit a small one) in the upcoming film.
Jolie's upcoming MALEFICENT is to shoot in July, so her role in THE COUNSELOR is likely to be a supportive one, probably opposite Michael Fassbender as his fiancee. Names like Jeremy Renner, Brad Pitt and Javier Bardem have been attached to the film but so far Fassy remains the only confirmed cast member.
I can’t wait for this film. I’ve read a bit of the script, and it’s an absolute crackerjack piece of writing. Unless the ending is totally botched, it will be something of a gem for the canon of Ridley Scott. Toss in a killer cast, and this is going to be something really special.
