Hollywood star Angelina Jolie is in talks to star in director Ridley Scott's upcoming narco-thriller 'The Counselor' .

The 36-year-old actress is entering a negotiation to take a small role in the upcoming film just a few weeks after her partner Brad Pitt was said to have a discussion for another small part in the film, reported Ace Showbiz.

Details of what character Jolie is eyeing to play are still unclear. It is possible for Jolie to join Scott's project as she will not begin filming her latest film, "Maleficent", until late June or early July. Scott himself has scheduled a June start date for his new movie.

"The Counselor", which is described as " 'No Country for Old Men' on steroids", follows a respected lawyer who thinks he can dip a toe in to the drug business without getting sucked down. Michael Fassbender, who also worked with Scott in upcoming "Prometheus", has been tapped to star as the male lead.
