Marisa Tomei looking to join Connelly’s THE LINCOLN LAWYER.

Oscar winner Marisa Tomei is in final discussions to join the film version of Michael Connelly’s THE LINCOLN LAWYER.

TLL was published in 2005 and is about Mickey Haller, a criminal defense attorney that works out of his Lincoln Town car. He typically handles low level stuff like con artists, drunk drivers and drug dealers. He soon finds himself in the middle of a huge case that appeals to his long dormant sense of justice.

Tomei would play Maggie McPherson, a prosecuting attorney and ex-wife of Mickey.

Matthew McConaughey is playing Mickey.
