THE COUNSELOR is an upcoming thriller film co-produced and directed by Ridley Scott, from a screenplay by Pulitzer Prize winning author Cormac McCarthy (No Country for Old Men). McCarthy, making his screenwriting debut and Scott interweave the author’s characteristic wit and dark humor with a nightmarish scenario, in which a respected lawyer’s dalliance with an illegal business deal spirals out of control.
Michael Fassbender played a lawyer who finds himself in over his head when he gets involved in drug trafficking. Brad Pitt, Cameron Diaz, Penélope Cruz, and Javier Bardem head up the rest of the supporting cast.
