Michael Fassbender’s latest project is a gritty drama written by one of America’s greatest living novelists and helmed by arguably one of the best directors to never win an Oscar.
The Counselor, written by Cormac McCarthy (No Country For Old Men, The Road) and directed by Ridley Scott (Gladiator, Blade Runner), is a film with an all-star cast attached: Michael Fassbender plays a lawyer who gets in over his head when he decides to pursue a venture in drug trafficking. Brad Pitt co-stars as the man overseeing the deal, with Javier Bardem playing a wealthy acquaintance of Fassbender’s. Penelope Cruz and Cameron Diaz also co-star, as the respective love interests of Fassbender and Bardem.
