Penelope Cruz may join Ridley Scott’s The Counselor


Penelope Cruz is in talks to star in “The Counselor”, Ridley Scott’s film version of the Cormac McCarthy novel.

Michael Fassbender, Brad Pitt, Javier Bardem (Cruz’s real life husband) and Angelina Jolie will star in the film, the story of ” an attorney (Fassbender), a good man in need of money, who decides to dabble in the cocaine trade. He teams up with a rich acquaintance (Bardem) for a new business that also brings in a shady type (Pitt). Things don’t go as planned, in what is described as a dialogue-heavy, violent and racy script.”

THR says “Vanilla Sky” actress Cruz is in talks to play Fassbender’s love interest.
