The hot role that actors are lining up for is the villain in The Counselor, the Ridley Scott-directed Cormac McCarthy-written thriller that will star Michael Fassbender. I’m hearing that The Bourne Legacy‘s Jeremy Renner and No Country For Old Men‘s Javier Bardem are among the actors circling. I’ve been hearing Brad Pitt too but unclear if he would be available. This is a most charmed path for a film that was bought at year’s end by producers Nick Wechsler and Steve and Paula Mae Schwartz and is heading for a May production start. Stay tuned.
