They are also serving as  exec producers along with Joel Gotler and Lakeshore's Gary Lucchesi and Tom Rosenberg.

Here is what Lionsgate’s Vice Chairman Michael Burns said in an interview with CNBC:
"'The Lincoln Lawyer' was a very successful movie for us (rought in $58 million domestically) and we're developing that with ABC. We're going to do a sequel on Lincoln Lawyer as well."
Matthew McConaughey starred in the film as  “a criminal defense attorney who does business from the back of a chauffeured Lincoln. The films protagonist Michael "Mickey" Haller is a character in five different novels by Connelly.

What are your thoughts on this news? I liked the first film and am interested in seeing a sequel more than the TV series. There are already enough lawyer related dramas on TV.
