Hot off the back of last year’s love-or-hate-it blockbuster Prometheus, director Ridley Scott has reteamed with Michael Fassbender in a modern crime tale, The Counsellor. There are very few hints as to what the plot might be both on the internet and in the teaser but here’s what we do know:
- It has an all-star cast that includes Brad Pitt, Javier Bardem, Penelope Cruz and Cameron Diaz.
- It features an original script from novelist Cormac McCarthy, who brought up 2007′s Oscar winning No Country For Old Men.
- According to Deadline, it concerns “a respected lawyer who thinks he can dip a toe in to the drug business without getting sucked down. It is a bad decision and he tries his best to survive it and get out of a desperate situation.”
We’ve been disappointed by Ridley Scott in the past but after this trailer, you can consider our interest piqued…
The Counsellor will be released 15 November
