Get ready to see some very good-looking people doing some very bad things.

The Counselor, directed by Ridley Scott (Prometheus), stars Michael Fassbender as a respected lawyer who gets involved in an illegal business deal that careens out of control.

Penélope Cruz plays his love interest, while her real-life husband, Javier Bardem, Brad Pitt and Cameron Diaz play shady characters.

One thing's for sure: There will be blood. Renowned author Cormac McCarthy (No Country for Old Men), known for his darkly comic, violent prose, wrote the script, his first original screenplay.



The movie is due out Oct. 25.
