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, Penélope Cruz, Cameron Diaz, Javier Bardem, and Brad Pitt. 

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 one-time dalliance with an illegal business deal spirals out of control.

"Sexy, complicated, smart, violent. Cool." - Richard Roeper, RichardRoeper.com

"Mr. Scott's seriousness isn't always well served by the scripts he films, but in Mr. McCarthy he has found a partner with convictions about good and evil rather than canned formula." - Manohla Dargis, New York Times

"In its cross-cultural breadth, director Ridley Scott's smart and violent film merits comparison to Steven Soderbergh's "Traffic," but the dialogue delivered by the stellar cast is incomparably McCarthy's." - Joe Williams, St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Natty in suit and tie and fresh from an introduction (to a group of high-schoolers, natch) of his new film I Am David, Feig impresses with an open intelligence, an engaging charisma, and what appears to be a genuine appreciation for where he is in his career and life.
