Tommy Lee Jones Says Goodbye to Matthew McConaughey and "The Lincoln Lawyer!" 


Tommy Lee Jones was supposed to direct and co-star with Matthew McConaughey in "The Lincoln Lawyer," but he has left production of the adaptation of the Michael Connelly novel.

The reason? Chalk it up to the good, old "creative difference" excuse.

Apparently, Jones and Lakeshore Entertainment disagreed over the script written by John Romano.

Lakeshore is reportedly looking for another director to begin production next spring.

Meanwhile, Jones is in post-production on HBO's "The Sunset Limited" based on a Cormac McCarthy play that Jones directed. Variety is also saying Jones is readying an adaptation of Ernest Hemingway's "Islands in the Stream." On the bigscreen, Jones most recently wrapped the John Wells-directed "The Company Men" with Ben Affleck and Kevin Costner.
