When a project with Matthew McConaughey is announced, it immediately comes to mind that the film will be some lame chick flick and a reason to showcase him shirtless. If I remember, his lead role in THE LINCOLN LAWYER did feature the actor shirtless but what a damn thrilling film with an equally fine performance it was. So with television network ABC currently putting together a series based on Michael Connelly’s creation, Lionsgate have also announced a sequel.
The character Mickey Haller appears in a total of four novels from author Michael Connelly. He is dubbed the ‘Lincoln Lawyer’ due to running his budget law firm from the back of his Lincoln Town car. It would be great to see McConaughey return as Haller for another thrilling encounter as the role gave him his best work in years.
