Marisa Tomie is set to star opposite Matthew McConaughey in the Michael Connelly (an author my dad has read the shit out of) novel, The Lincoln Lawyer.
At first this was set to be directed by none other than Tommy Lee Jones as he would co star also. Sweet. But then he left over 'creative differences'. I.E. he wasn't thrilled with the script. Good enough reason for me.
The legal thriller centers on low-level criminal defense attorney Mickey Haller (McConaughey) who finds himself representing a wealthy client with ties to a previous murder case Haller handled. Tomie's character is his ex-wife, prosecuting attorney Maggie McPherson.
I've always said, that if McConaughey spent as much time maneging his acting career and trying to break ground, as he does looking "sexy" and wooing chicks in his very plentiful romantic comedies and magazine covers, he'd be ballin' son! But I guess, theirs' gotta be the brainless square-jaw cliche' in Hollywood though.
Tomie on the other hand, has carved herself out a nice spot in Tinseltown's history books with her roles and performances. I love following her stuff, watching her do her thing, scoop awards and noms and enjoy the lines just dripping out of her mouth. This woman, is the reason I'm seeing this. Of course, we have director yet, so we'll have to see who steps in. But, with these names attached to star, we should see someone of prestige, no?
Keeping you posted on this.
