Ladies and Gentlemen, I warn you I may get a little fanboy up in here. Because the first trailer for Cormac McCarthy’s The Counselor, based on his screenplay, has arrived.
While this is McCarthy’s first screenplay, many of his books have been adapted into major films, the most notable being 2007’s No Country For Old Men, which snared the Academy Award for Best Picture.
Tommy Lee Jones and Samuel L. Jackson also appeared in a HBO production of McCarthy’s The Sunset Limited, a brilliant novel in dramatic form.
But The Counselor represents a huge leap into the film world for McCarthy, and with Ridley Scott directing a cast that includes Michael Fassbender, Brad Pitt, Javier Bardem, Penélope Cruz and Cameron Diaz, methinks this film is going to be very, very special.
