Cameron Diaz could be the latest Hollywood superstar to seek The Counselor…
The 39-year-old half-Cuban American actress is reportedly in final negotiations to star in director Ridley Scott’s The Counselor.
Should Diaz sign on the dotted line, she will join an all-star cast that includes Michael Fassbender, Brad Pitt, Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz.
Based on the original script by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Cormac McCarthy, the film centers on a respected lawyer (Fassbender) who thinks he can dip a toe into the drug business without getting sucked down, which proves to be a life-threatening decision.
In what’s considered a strong supporting role, Diaz would play Malkina.
Diaz—who shined bright at Monday night’s Met Ball—most recently starred in Bad Teacher, and will appear in the upcoming ensemble comedy What To Expect When You’re Expecting.
