A few days ago, it was revealed that Angelina Jolie had met Ridley Scott about a small role in the upcoming The Counselor, and now it appears her longtime squeeze Brad Pitt may also be up for a role, while Javier Bardem is also circling a part too, according to Deadline.
In the film, Michael Fassbender will portray a lawyer who gets in over his head when he tries his hand at drug trafficking. No details have been given for Brad Pitt or Javier Bardem’s roles, but they may play villains. Deals aren’t yet in place for either of the actors, or indeed Jolie, but if it all comes together, it’ll certainly be quite a cast.
Ridley Scott is directing from a screenplay by Cormac McCarthy. Scott hopes to shoot this summer, once he’s completed promotional work on Prometheus.
