Brangelina to co-star in film again

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are reportedly both in talks to appear in Ridley Scott's new film The Counselor.

This would be the first time they have starred on screen together since they met playing a husband and wife spy team in Mr And Mrs Smith in 2005, when Brad was married to Jennifer Aniston. The couple have since confessed falling in love with each other on set.

Michael Fassbender is already signed up to star in The Counselor as a respected lawyer who dabbles in drug dealing. Deadline has reported that Brad is now on the verge of signing up for a supporting role as Westray, "a business associate of the Counselor", while Angelina is rumoured to be in discussions to play the female lead.

Javier Bardem was among those thought to have been in talks to play the film's villain, and the Oscar-winning actor was spotted having dinner with Ridley at 34 in London's Mayfair earlier this week, along with wife Penelope Cruz, sparking reports he is about to officially sign up to the role.

The film, written by The Road's Cormac McCarthy, has been described as "No Country For Old Men on steroids".
