Diaz Replaces Jolie In Scott’s “Counselor”

Cameron Diaz has joined the cast of Ridley Scott’s “The Counselor” in the role previously targeted by Angelina Jolie says Twitchfilm.

Cormac McCarthy’s script centers on an attorney (Michael Fassbender), a good man in need of money, who decides to dabble in the cocaine trade.

He teams up with a rich acquaintance (Javier Bardem) for a new business that also brings in a shady type (Brad Pitt). Things don’t go as planned.

Diaz’s role is that of Malkina, the horny Argentinean woman who has hooked up with Bardem’s character. Nick Wechsler and Paula Mae Schwartz will produce and shooting is set to begin shortly.
