Penelope Cruz: 'The Counselor' with Javier Bardem?

Penelope Cruz is in talks to co-star with hubby Javier Bardem in Ridley Scott‘s new film, The Counselor.

The film “centers on an attorney (Michael 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 (Brad Pitt). Things don’t go as planned, in what is described as a dialogue-heavy, violent and racy script,” THR reports.

No official offers have been made to Penelope, but if the deal goes through, she will be playing Michael’s love interest.

Brad‘s fiancee Angelina Jolie was also considered for the part of the love interest, but it remains unclear if this will conflict with her filming schedule for Maleficent.
