Marisa Tomei in Talks for The Lincoln Lawyer


Marisa Tomei is in talks to join Matthew McConaughey in the legal thriller The Lincoln Lawyer. She would play McConaughey’s ex-wife, prosecuting attorney Maggie McPherson.

The film centers on low-level criminal defense attorney Mickey Haller who finds himself representing a wealthy client with ties to a previous murder case Haller handled.

The project is based on a Michael Connolly best-seller that was published in 2005 by Little, Brown.
