Ridley Scott’s new thriller, The Counsellor, arrives in US cinemas this Friday, but here in the UK we will have to wait a few weeks to see what Scott has put together after Prometheus.
However, to keep our interest high, a new collection of images (the last one is very bizarre) and a behind the scenes featurette featuring interviews with cast, crew and Scot himself, have all been released. Check out the images and featurette below.
Ridley Scott directs the film, which is written by Cormac McCarthy. Now here’s the jaw dropping cast: Brad Pitt, Javier Bardem, Michael Fassbender, Cameron Diaz, Penelope Cruz, John Leguizamo, Rosie Perez, Natalie Dormer, Dean Norris, Goran Visnjic and Bruno Ganz.
The Counsellor is due for release on 15th November 2013.
It is the story of a lawyer, the Counselor, a man who is so seduced by the desire to get rich, to impress his fiancee Laura, that he becomes involved in a drug-smuggling venture that quickly takes him way out of his depth. His contacts in this are the mysterious and probably corrupt Reiner and the seductive Malkina, so exotic her pets of choice are two cheetahs. As the action crosses the Mexican border, things become darker, more violent and more sexually disturbing than the Counselor has ever imagined.
