Ridley Scott Drafts Brad Pitt And Javier Bardem For 'The Counselor', With Fox Circling

Deadline:
Back in February, Deadline revealed that Ridley Scott was aiming high for a nemesis to play alongside Michael Fassbender in The Counselor, with Brad Pitt and Javier Bardem on the wish list. I’m told now that Scott is on the verge of getting both actors into the movie. There are rumors swirling that Angelina Jolie is in discussions to play the female lead but that is less solidified. They’re all in talks for a film that starts production late June. Fox is negotiating to distribute, which was expected because of Scott Free’s first look deal that gave the studio first crack at the package.

All I know is that it looks like this is going to have a lot of big names in it....it will be a while before it comes out but it's still a movie to keep track of.

I sometimes get worried when a cast is too big with popular names, so I hope they slow it down. The story can get lost among the Hollywood elite or the elite might just raise the expectations of the movie too high above what the movie really is. Although, so far Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are the only really big box-office names around this project.
