Legendary filmmaker Ridley Scott and Pulitzer Prize winning author Cormac McCarthy ("No Country for Old Men") have joined forces in the motion picture thriller "The Counselor," starring Michael Fassbender, Javier Bardem, Brad Pitt, Penélope Cruz, and Cameron Diaz. McCarthy, making his screenwriting debut and Scott interweave the author's characteristic wit and dark humor with a nightmarish scenario, in which a respected lawyer's dalliance with an illegal business deal spirals out of control.
