Michael Fassbender, Cameron Diaz and Javier Bardem star in new pics from The Counselor
Anticipation is building for Ridley Scott’s adaptation of Cormac McCarthy’s ‘The Counselor’. Given the author and the subject matter, we can only assume the film will be pretty dark and depressing, but it looks like Javier Bardem is going to provide a lively spark for the movie and will probably steal the show. We have a handful of new pics from the upcoming film, showing off its star-studded cast. THE COUNSELOR stars: Michael Fassbender, Javier Bardem, Brad Pitt, Cameron Diaz, Penelope Cruz, Natalie Dormer, Goran Visnjic, Dean Norris, John Leguizamo and Rosie Perez. The Ridley Scott directed film hits theaters on October 25th, 2013.
The official Amazon synopsis for Cormac McCarthy’s ‘The Counselor’: On the eve of becoming a married man, the Counselor makes a risky entrée into the drug trade—and gambles that the consequences won’t catch up to him. Along the gritty terrain of the Texas–Mexico border, a respected and recently engaged lawyer throws his stakes into a cocaine trade worth millions. His hope is that it will be a one-time deal and that, afterward, he can settle into life with his beloved fiancée. But instead, the Counselor finds himself mired in a brutal and dangerous game—one that threatens to destroy everything and everyone he loves. Deft, shocking, and unforgettable, McCarthy is at his finest in this gripping tale about risk, consequence, and the treacherous balance between the two.
