Shakespeare suggested we 'kill all the lawyers.' Tommy Lee Jones is doing his part by bailing out on 'The Lincoln Lawyer,' which he had been slated to direct and play second banana to Matthew McConaughey in an adaptation of Michael Connelly's hit novel.

McConaughey is to play the lead as Mickey Haller, a criminal attorney who is working out of the back seat of his car, chauffeured by Jones, who was to portray a client who is working off the lawyer's fees. The attorney is okay with handling run-of-the-mill bad buys until he scores a career-making case: defending a Beverly Hills playboy accused of murder.
