20th Century Fox is hoping to move on The Counselor, which will be directed by Ridley Scott if he can secure the casting he wants, which includes Michael Fassbender, Jeremy Renner, and Natalie Portman.

Angelina Jolie is eyeing a small role in the film, which was written as an original script by legendary author Cormac McCarthy. The story follows a lawyer who is looking to get into the drug trade.

Ridley Scott hopes to have The Counselor in front of cameras by June, giving Angelina Jolie enough time to shoot her few scenes before headlining Maleficent for Walt Disney Pictures.
