Ridley Scott's 'The Counselor' is going with an impressionistic ad campaign so far.

When we last left Ridley Scott's 'Prometheus,' the film had grossed a weak $126 million domestically but a slightly more promising $400 million worldwide.

But there's hope for a sequel yet as star Noomi Rapace has reported that the script is being worked on right now.

We've said it before, and we'll say it again. TV continues to become more and more of a medium that Hollywood's biggest directors can find an outlet.
