So out of nowhere, it seems like Ridley Scott has a new movie coming out! With a baller cast consisting of, Michael Fassbender, Brad Pitt, Javier Bardem, Penélope Cruz, Cameron Diaz and John Leguizamo. Color me interested.
Catch the teaser after the jump.
The movie itself?
It’s described as, This intense drug thriller tells the story of an attorney (Fassbender), a good man in need of money who decides to dabble in the cocaine trade. The story heats up when he teams up with a rich acquaintance (Bardem) for the new business that also brings in a shady type (Pitt). Of course, things don’t go as planned. The Counselor is directed by the legendary English filmmaker Ridley Scott, of Prometheus, Robin Hood, Body of Lies, American Gangster, A Good Year and Kingdom of Heaven most recently. The screenplay was written by author Cormac McCarthy, the writer behind No Country for Old Men and The Road.
And for a director who describes himself as one who tells stories about the characters, and not to get lost in the settings, this certainly fits the bill. Other than that? Sounds like FOX will drop this one in theatres on October 25th. Interested?
