Angelina Jolie is in negotiations to take a small role in Ridley Scott‘s narco-thriller The Counselor. Scott’s follow-up to Prometheus stars Michael Fassbender as a respected lawyer who thinks he can dip his toe in the drug business without getting sucked down. The script, written by No Country for Old Men author Cormac McCarthy, has been described as No Country “on steroids”. As we previously reported, Jeremy Renner, Javier Bardem, Natalie Portman, Bradley Cooper, and Brad Pitt are also circling roles in the film, although Pitt is considering a small part due to his busy schedule.
Vulture currently has no details on who Jolie would play, but there might be room in her schedule to make a brief appearance in Scott’s movie. The Counselor starts filming in June, and Jolie isn’t scheduled to don a pair of horns to play the title role in the Sleeping Beauty re-imagining Maleficent until late June or early July. As we reported yesterday, Maleficent is slated for release on March 14, 2014.
