According to The Wrap, Scott Free Productions, the company co-founded by brothers Tony and Ridley Scott, will shut down production of The Counselor this week after Tony Scott’s apparent suicide on Sunday. Ridley Scott is directing the project from a script by novelist Cormac McCarthy. The film, which stars Brad Pitt and Michael Fassbender, examines a lawyer (Fassbender) who decides to dabble in the drug trade along the Mexican border. Cameron Diaz, Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz all have parts as well.
The Counselor is currently filming in London, but Ridley Scott has reportedly flown from London to Los Angeles after his brother’s death. Though born and raised in England, Tony lived in Beverly Hills. Tony Scott’s body was recovered late Sunday after police received a 911 call that someone had jumped into the Los Angeles Harbor from the Vincent Thomas Bridge near San Pedro.
In addition to directing, the Scott brothers produced dozens of projects under the Scott Free banner. Tony Scott had a number of projects at various stages of development, but it remains to be seen what will happen with most of them. Fox will distribute The Counselor, as it has so many of the Scott brothers’ projects.
Tons of scans from last year’s worldwide promotion tour for Bad Teacher have been added to the gallery. These include covers and editorials from various magazines from The USA, The UK, Italy, Germany, Russia, Spain and many other countries.

According to E! Online, The Expendables 2 director Simon West has his eye on some of Hollywood’s hottest butt-kicking leading ladies if he decides to make a third flick in the action film franchise. “I like the idea of the Expenda-Belles where it’s seven or eight women mercenaries,” West told us at last night’s Hollywood premiere of The Expendables 2. “It would be Angelina Jolie, Cameron Diaz, Mila Jovovich, the list goes on,” he said, adding, “Helen Mirren, Jamie Lee Curtis would be great.”
Expendables 2 star Terry Crews also has some gorgeous gals in mind. “I love Kate Beckinsale in Total Recall,” Crews said. “I would love to see Charlize Theron. She would be a sweet badass just doing some crazy stuff!” West says the gang of femme fatales wouldn’t put the franchise’s male action stars out of a job. “No, it would be running parallel,” he said of the plot. “They would meet up and then they would fight and they would join up and save each other.”
What do you think of the idea of having Cami in this kinds of project again? Is it a match made in heaven or a bit too much like what she did in the Charlie’s Angels franchise?
I have added Blu-ray captures of Cameron’s performance as Christina Pagniacci in Any Given Sunday to our photo gallery. She starred opposite Al Pacino, James Woods and Dennis Quaid in director Oliver Stone’s 1999-drama. While not one of my favorite movies, Cameron delivers a great performance as the tough Christina and certainly holds her own against Pacino and the others. This update means two milestones for our photo gallery: We now have over 70,000 pictures and screen captures from all of Cameron’s feature film roles! I have also added a press interview for Any Given Sunday to our video archive as well as updated the film page with new information.
Cameron Diaz’s latest project is all about looking and feeling good. HarperCollins announced Wednesday that the star of Charlie’s Angels, ‘There’s Something About Mary and other films has an agreement with the publisher for a book on health and wellness. Diaz’s book is currently untitled and scheduled for publication in the fall of 2013.
According to HarperCollins, the book will offer advice to young women about health, fitness, nutrition and general well-being. The publisher says Diaz hopes to “engage and empower” women. Diaz, who turns 40 later this month, has spoken often about the importance of health and fitness and her desire to share advice.

Some sad news regarding the release of Gambit was released a couple of days ago: Michael Hoffman’s remake of the 1966 caper comedy has now been pushed to an unspecified date in Winter 2013. Cameron Diaz and Colin Firth star as partners in a con to sell a fake Monet painting, and the film has a script by Joel and Ethan Coen. CBS Films initially slated the pic for a January 2013 release before most recently shifting it to October 2012. Now they appear to have changed their minds, and we’ll likely see Gambit drop in January or February of 2013. I don’t really know what this tells us about the movie itself, but I’m still very excited to see Cameron in this kind of film again.
