Cormac McCarthy Sells First Screenplay ‘The Counselor’

You would have imagined that a writer with the stature of one Cormac McCarthy would have sold a handful of screenplays at this point in his career. However, until now, that was far from the case.

The Wrap is reporting that McCarthy has sold his first script, a spec script entitled The Counselor. The script was picked up by Nick Wechsler and Steve and Paula Mae Schwartz, the producers behind the adaptation of McCarthy’s The Road.

The film will take place in the contemporary Southwest and follows a man who gets entangled in the drug business, which of course leads to disastrous events unfolding in his life.

Personally, I can’t wait to check this sucker out. McCarthy is such a brilliant writer, that one would have to imagine that his talent will make for one hell of a film screenplay. The premise sounds so damn good that it has the makings of something insanely interesting.

What do you think?
