Brad Furman is directing the pic from an adapted screenplay by John Romano.
The Lincoln Lawyer revolves around moderately successful criminal defense attorney Mickey Haller, who operates out of the backseat of his Lincoln Town Car.
Haller has spent most of his career defending garden-variety criminals, until he lands the case of a lifetime: Representing a Beverly Hills playboy accused of murder. The case, however, turns into a deadly game of survival for Haller.
Lionsgate has not yet set a release date. Furman will begin production in July.
