Tommy Lee Jones to Direct Matthew McConaughey in "Lincoln Lawyer"

Posted: October 14th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Tommy Lee Jones to Direct Matthew McConaughey in "Lincoln Lawyer"Submit Comment
Tommy Lee Jones is in negotiations to direct and star in "The Lincoln Lawyer," based on the 2005 best-seller by Michael Connelly, which centers on Mickey Haller (Matthew McConaughey), a wheeler-dealer Los Angeles lawyer who operates out of the back of his Lincoln.

Haller is content with a career defending garden-variety criminals until he lands the case of a lifetime: defending a Beverly Hills playboy accused of murder. John Romano (Intolerable Cruelty, Nights in Rodanthe) penned the screenplay.

Jones will likely play the second male lead, which is a playboy character. In the book, he is described as somewhat younger than Jones, but the part could be adjusted to accommodate an older interpretation.

im not the biggest fan of McConaughey, but glad to see him not playing a character where hes either a stoner dude, surfer dude, or in a sh*t romantic comedy i.e every film hes done since a time to kill

McConaughey would have OWNED as the lead in Titanic. Those goofy ass lines were made for his voice.

"I guess I'm just a tumbleweed blowin' in the wind."

"On the bed, um, THE COUCH!"

That sh*t would have SUNG with his voice I tell you!

So... let me see if I got this straight...
McConaughey is playing the old lawyer... Jones is playing the young playboy?

...hum, intriguing...

They're gonna need a looot of prosthetics!

so wait, a movie where McConaughey has to have his shirt on for it's entirety? how will he know how to act if his pecs aren't getting in the way?

he was good in Tropic Thunder and We Are Marshall...as long as he keeps his clothes on and Tommy Lee Jones does likewise it sounds ok...who knows these days

Sounds terrible, wont even download it. After watching the Expendables trailer, all other movies look like sh*t.

I personally like Matthew McConaughey in "Frailty" and "13 Conversations About One Thing"

I'm not too sure about this film, though. I think it's a little early to judge, though.
