Double trouble: Brad Pitt and his partner Angeline Jolie look set to land roles in The Counselor

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie look set to make movie magic together again, with the pair linked to roles in the upcoming Ridley Scott thriller The Counselor [sic].

The Hollywood super couple first sizzled on screen in Mr & Mrs Smith, with sparks first flying during the filming of the action film.

And it seems Brad and Angie are ready to recreate the chemistry once again in The Counselor, with Deadline.com reporting that both are being lined up for parts.

The site first reported in February that Ridley Scott was keen on securing either Brad Pitt or Javier Bardem to play alongside Michael Fassbender in the movie.

Now it looks like both are set to land roles in the blockbuster – with rumours also circulating that Brad’s long-term partner Angelina Jolie is also in line for a lead role, however this appears less certain. It now looks more likely that the Tomb Raider star may be in line for a smaller part.

Black Swan star Natalie Portman is another big name star who is being linked to a role in the thriller.

The movie follows the story of a respected lawyer played by Fassbender, who thinks he can dabble in the drug world without being caught up in it – but soon realises he’s in over his head.

Shooting is expected to start in June around Europe.
