Tommy Lee Jones is in talks to co-star and direct the adaptation of Michael Connelly’s novel “The Lincoln Lawyer,” about a Los Angeles lawyer who sets up shop in the back of his Lincoln. McConaughey will play Mickey Haller the hotshot lawyer, and though Jones’s role is unknown as of now, he looks to be playing the Beverly Hills playboy Haller must defend for murder. More on the project after the jump.

According to the Risky Biz Blog, the project is set up at Lakeshore Entertainment and the screenplay was penned by John Roman of “Intolerable Cruelty” and “Nights in Rodanthe” fame. This feature is Jones’s second stab at directing for film after “The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada” in 2005, which was a critical–if not financial–success for Sony Pictures Classics.

The project is still in development, but in the meantime, you can look forward to Jones in “The Company Men” and McConaughey in “Southbound.”

    Three Burials was an EXCELLENT film! I’m glad to hear TLJ is on the way behind the camera again. I’ll watch anything he directs.

    I read the Lincoln Lawyer and all of Mike Connelly’s books. I can’t wait to see this film, however, not much is being done to promote this which I am disappointed.
