9.  The first original screenplay written by Cormac McCarthy.
========================================================================

=======================================================================
8.  The film was born out of Ridley Scott's failed attempts to bring Cormac McCarthy's novel "Blood Meridian" to the screen. McCarthy and Scott knew each other since then and when McCarthy offered the screenplay for The Counselor (2013) suddenly on the market, Scott didn't hesitate, met with McCarthy and bought the script.

7.  Penélope Cruz was pregnant during filming.

========================================================================

========================================================================
5. On August 20, 2012, Ridley Scott halted production of the film due to his brother Tony Scott's death. He canceled that week's shoot in order to travel to Los Angeles to be with his brother's family. Scott returned to London to resume production on September 3, 2012.

=======================================================================
4.  The film's main Counselor character remains nameless, as do a few other characters with speaking parts: The Blonde, The Diamond Dealer, The Priest, The Wireman, etc. And no one in the film goes by a complete first & last name.
========================================================================

=======================================================================
3.  John Leguizamo has a small part in this movie but his name does not appear in the cast credits at the end of the movie.

=======================================================================
2.  Javier Bardem's wardrobe was largely made up of pieces of Versace.
========================================================================

=======================================================================
1.  Westray's (Brad Pitt) sidewalk death scene was scaled back because it was deemed too violent by the MPAA. The full scene can be seen in the longer Unrated Version.
