Tommy Lee Jones to steer THE LINCOLN LAWYER?

Oscar-winning actor Tommy Lee Jones is in discussions to co-star in and direct the film version of Michael Connelly’s THE LINCOLN LAWYER.

“Haller is a Lincoln Lawyer, a criminal defense attorney who operates out of the
back seat of his Lincoln Town Car, traveling between the far-flung courthouses
of Los Angeles to defend clients of every kind. Bikers, con artists, drunk
drivers, drug dealers — they’re all on Mickey Haller’s client list. For him, the
law is rarely about guilt or innocence — it’s about negotiation and
manipulation. Sometimes it’s even about justice.”

Matthew McConaughey has already signed on to play the Mickey.

Jones previously directed The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada.
