While he may be knees deep in PROMETHEUS at this point, Ridley Scott is not looking to slow his pace.
He recently chatted up Empire and revealed that his upcoming film, THE COUNSELOR, will shoot later this year, in June to be exact, just one week after his upcoming sci-fi epic PROMETHEUS hits theaters.
Those who may not remember, the film is penned by Cormac McCarthy, and is set to star Michael Fassbender, with names like Brad Pitt and Natalie Portman also looking to join the project. The film will follow an attorney, looking to make some quick cash following his proposal to his girlfriend. Toss in $20 million worth of cocaine and you have a launch pad for what is one of the bleakest scripts this writer has ever had the chance to read. It’s not a happy film, not in the least, but it's one of the best scripts I’ve read in some time, and it will make for one hell of a PROMETHEUS follow-up.
