No Lincoln Lawyer for Tommy Lee Jones


Variety says that Tommy Lee Jones has dropped out of The Lincoln Lawyer, which he had been set to direct and co-star in with Matthew McConaughey.

Vareity says Jones has left the project over creative differences on the script, which is an adaptation of the Michael Connelly novel.

Lakeshore Entertainment, which has a script by John Romano, will look to lock in another director in hopes of beginning production next spring.
