Ridley Scott’s “The Counselor” has to be one of the most star-studded projects set to hit theaters in 2013. Scott (Alien, Gladiator) will be directing the adaptation of the novel by author Cormack McCarthy. McCarthy has had one of his novels previously adapted into a movie…. a little flick called “No Country for Old Men”. If “The Counselor” is a high-quality type of film like “No Country for Old Men” (it won the 2007 Oscar for Best Picture), than movie fans across the world should be in for a treat. The story centers around a lawyer who finds himself in over his head when he gets involved in drug trafficking. “The Counselor” is set to hit theaters November 15th 2013.
The only thing more exciting than the McCarthy novel and plot is the all-star cast set to star in “The Counselor”. The film will feature Brad Pitt, Javier Bardem, Penelope Cruz, Cameron Diaz, and one of The Audio Dope’s favorite new-comers, Michael Fassbender (Inglourious Basterds, Hunger). As you can see in the pics below, all of the actors seem to be playing some pretty wacky and wild characters. I can’t wait to hear the accent Pitt uses for his character (dude has amazing vocal range) and I can’t wait to see the story behind Bardem’s freaky-looking hair. Enjoy the pics!
