'Counselor' suspends production after Scott death
Ridley Scott directing vehicle shutting down production for the week
Scott Free drama "The Counselor" will shut down production for the rest of the week due to the death of Tony Scott.
Brother Ridley Scott is directing the project, which stars Brad Pitt and Michael Fassbender. Shooting got under way this summer in London with a script by Cormac McCarthy about a lawyer who attempts to get into the drug business. Additional cast includes Cameron Diaz, Javier Bardem, Penelope Cruz and Rosie Perez.
Scott jumped off a bridge midday Sunday to his death; ABC News later reported that he had inoperable brain cancer.
Twentieth Century Fox will distribute "The Counselor" with Ridley Scott, Steve Schwartz, Nick Wechsler and Paula Mae Schwartz producing for Scott Free and Chockstone Pictures.
