Fox has released a new batch of images from director Ridley Scott’s upcoming thriller The Counselor. The film centers around a young lawyer (Michael Fassbender) who finds himself in over his head when he teams with a drug dealer to sell $20 million in narcotics. The screenplay is written by Pulitzer Prize winning novelist Cormac McCarthy (No Country for Old Men, The Road) and marks his first original screenplay.
A lot to like here, Fassbender in a leading role surrounded by an impressive supporting cast and director Ridley Scott. Scott has been shaky lately but is a talented filmmaker and hopefully he can regain his footing here.
The supporting cast includes Brad Pitt, Penelope Cruz, Javier Bardem, Cameron Diaz, Dean Norris, Rosie Perez, John Leguizamo, Natalie Dormer and Goran Visnjic.
