Tommy Lee in talks to star/direct The Lincoln Lawyer

Tommy Lee Jones is in talks to direct and star in Matthew McConaughey’s The Lincoln Lawyer.

 

Based on Michael Connolly’s 2005 bestseller, the project follows the story of low-level criminal defence attorney Mickey Haller (McConaughey), who finds himself looking after a Beverly Hills playboy accused of murder.

 

It is not yet known who Jones would play in the film, which is being penned by John Romano (The Beast, Monk).
