Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are officially engaged, and word has it they might end up working together on a future project as well.
Deadline is reporting that if negotiations pan out, Pitt could star in Ridley Scott's "The Counselor" with his long-time lady love being a rumored potential contender for the female lead.
The real-life partners and parents have not acted together since 2005’s action adventure “Mr. and Mrs. Smith,” where they became friends on-set.
Oscar winner Javier Bardem is also reportedly close to signing on for the thriller.
Shooting is expected to begin this June.
The film - which also stars Michael Fassbender - is about an attorney who finds himself drawn to the seedy underworld of drug-dealing and related crime.
Pitt would play West Ray, a role for which Scott had originally considered Jeremy Renner, according to reports.
