Film and literature heavyweights collide as Oscar-winning director Ridley Scott has teamed up with Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Cormac McCarthy – of No Country for Old Men, The Road, Blood Meridian and Border Trilogy fame – for The Counselor. Directed and co-produced by Scott from an original screenplay by McCarthy, the film stars Michael Fassbender as a lawyer who ultimately ends up in way over his head when he becomes involved in drug trafficking.
