February 1, 2012

Ridley Scott is in talks to direct Pulitzer Prize-winning author Cormac McCarthy‘s first spec original drama “The Counselor” reports Deadline.

The story follows a respected lawyer who thinks he can dip a toe into the drug business without getting pulled in, a decision he tries his best to survive.

No Country For Old Men” and “The Road” are among the films made from McCarthy’s books

Scott has been talking directly to McCarthy and it’s likely that he will sign on using his production company.

If he signs then Scott will make this his next film once he’s wrapped post-production on “Prometheus“. The project takes priority over several films on his plate.

No studio has picked up the rights to distribute the film yet

Nick Wechsler, Steve and Paula Mae Schwartz will produce.
