News from all over the Web today is that Angelina Jolie is in talks to take a small part in The Counselor, Ridley Scott’s upcoming adaptation of Cormac McCarthy’s screenplay. The source for all this speculation appears to have been Vulture:
Insiders tell us that Ridley Scott’s planned Cormac McCarthy narco-thriller, The Counselor, is rapidly heating up, so much so that Twentieth Century Fox is now in active discussions to distribute and possibly co-finance the movie — provided Scott gets the white-hot cast he’s seeking.
For instance, on top of Michael Fassbender, who has previously been confirmed to star (which would mark his second collaboration with Scott following this summer’s Prometheus), a Fox insider tells us that Angelina Jolie is in talks with Scott to take a small part.
More relevant at this point, of course, may be the fact that Twentieth Century Fox might be involved.
