Angelina Jolie Attached to Ridley Scott's 'The Counselor'

Angelina Jolie is in talks to play a small role in the upcoming Ridley Scott-directed film The Counselor.

The 36-year-old actress would star opposite Michael Fassbender, who is already set to play the lead role in the flick based on the Cormac McCarthy novel of the same name, according to Vulture.

The film follows “a lawyer (Fassbender) who wants to get just a little bit involved in the drug business. He then discovers that there’s no such thing as a little bit involved in the drug business.”

Twentieth Century Fox is currently in discussions to distribute and co-finance the flick.

FYI: Angie‘s partner Brad Pitt is also in talks for a minor role in the film as well!

# 8

cr jp fan from last thread

I read Natalie Portman is also circling The Counselor. There are two female roles in it: Malkina and Laura. Since Laura, the counselor’s girlfriend is younger than the counselor, most likely Natalie Portman will play Laura. Malkina is a femme fatale type role which Angie is the expert. If Angie plays Malkina, I hope Brad plays Reiner, the villain role, Reiner and Malkina are lovers in the film.
sounds fantastic!

Hyperventilating right now!
My two favorite actors in a movie together! Michael is so hot~
I hope Jolie will be in the movie!
I can’t wait!

According to Variety, Ellen Fanning will start another movie in June. Looks like Maleficent won’t be able to begin in June.

I hope she does it.

@fyi: Elle fanning was never really attached to maleficent. She was just rumored for the role. She’s too young for the part and when Disney announce the release date they said nothing about Elle.

If all the actors they mentioned before and now are indeed in the movie, that would be an amazing cast: Brad, Angie, Fassbender, Portman, Javier Bardem

Elle Fanning going with ‘God Help the Girl’
Olly Alexander also in talks for Stuart Murdoch musical
By Jeff Sneider

Following a long casting search that spanned the globe, “Super 8″ star Elle Fanning and “Enter the Void” thesp Olly Alexander are in negotiations to topline “God Help the Girl,” a Glasgow-set musical written and directed by Stuart Murdoch, the lead singer of Belle and Sebastian.

Barry Mendel is producing through his Barry Mendel Prods. banner. Carole Sheridan of Glasgow-based Singer Films is also producing with Chris Curling and Phil Robertson of London-based Zephyr Films.

Project began in late 2003 when Murdoch started writing a few songs that had a ‘girl group’ sound. The songs led to the concept album “God Help the Girl,” which was released in 2009 as a precursor to the film. Catherine Ireton sang the ‘part’ of Eve, the pic’s main character, who has yet to be cast.

Alexander will play James, a cynical guitarist who accompanies Eve’s singing and becomes a mentor to Cass (Fanning), an American teen who tags alongside the duo as she learns to play the guitar.

Producers raised more than $100,000 in financing on Kickstarter, and London-based sales agent HanWay Films will handle international sales when it begins shopping the project at Cannes. Production is skedded to start in Glasgow in June, just weeks before Fanning shoots Disney’s “Maleficent” with Angelina Jolie.

Fanning, who was last seen in Cameron Crowe’s “We Bought a Zoo,” recently wrapped Sally Potter’s “Bomb,” which co-stars Annette Bening and Christina Hendricks.

Alexander is an up-and-coming Brit thesp who currently stars opposite Greta Gerwig in the indie “The Dish & the Spoon,” which he and Gerwig both had a hand in writing. His other feature credits include Jane Campion’s “Bright Star,” Gaspar Noe’s “Enter the Void” and the 20th Century Fox comedy “Gulliver’s Travels.”

WME reps Alexander and Fanning, who is also repped by One Talent Management.

I guess I was incorrect. the article says Elle fannings new project will start weeks before she starts filming maleficent with Jolie.

If so, that’s wonderful news for Angie, but wasn’t Brad’s name also attached to the project? So many stories going around, I don’t know what to believe until it’s established as fact.

@briseis, from the last angie thread.

I know, Dancing With the Stars is one of my favorite shows and wouldn’t want her stinking it up either. ;)

@fyi: It doesn’t say maleficent won’t be shooting in June . I think Elle is too young but I guess they can work with the movie magic.

I can’t wait to see if Brad and Angelina would reteam in The Counselor. Fassbender is a good actor but still not a move star yet. His name is not a draw.

@A Lurker:

Agree. I hope they are sign up for this movie.

Great news!!!!

I’d love to see Brad and Angelina in the same movie.

I see Sherri Shepard was voted off DWTS tonight. Another person who is always passing snide remarks about Angie on the View. Glad to see karma coming back to bite her, lol.

Media Wh@re MANiston @ 04/10/2012 at 10:56 pm

Is nice to see the people Brad worked with also works with Angie and vice versa.

Just because a movie has a start date does not mean every person acting in the movie has to be there on that day.
I would love Angelina to do this movie but her name is always added to articles of stars thinking about doing a movie.
