MUMBAI: Angelina Jolie is in negotiations to star in director Ridley Scott‘s upcoming narco-thriller The Counselor.

The 36-year-old actress will most likely play a small role in the upcoming film just a few weeks after her partner Brad Pitt was said to have a discussion for another small role in the same film, it is understood.

It is possible for Jolie to join Scott‘s project as she will not begin filming her next film Maleficent until late June or early July. Scott himself has scheduled a June start for the film.

The Counselor, which is described as No Country for Old Men on steroids, follows a respected lawyer who thinks he can dip a toe in to the drug business without getting sucked down.

It is said that Michael Fassbender is being tapped to star in the male lead.
