Lakeshore Entertainment has announced that Matthew McConaughey will star in their upcoming adaptation of The Lincoln Lawyer. Based on Michael Connolly's 2005 novel of the same name, The Lincoln Lawyer is a legal thriller that 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. It looks like the screenplay was written by John Romano, of The Third Miracle and Nights in Rodanthe previously, although no director is attached to this just yet. We'll let you know when we know more about this.
