Novelist Cormac McCarthy has become very respected in the film world of late, with The Road and the Academy Award winning, No Country For Old Men. He has now sidestepped the middle medium with a screenplay called The Counselor. The thriller has Michael Fassbender attached and Ridley Scott directing.
Twitch are reporting that Jeremy Renner and Javier Bardem are competing for a role, while Natalie is in talks about the lead female role.
Maybe there is confusion from the real interest in Ridley Scott’s Gucci, but I’m sad to report that Natalie is NOT in talks for The Counselor. Would have been great to see her in a thriller and working with Fassbender, but alas.
