Discussing the sequel with Total magazine, McConaughey said, "Wouldn't you think that the sequel would be getting written right now for me to do the next one? [McConaughey's character, Mickey Haller, appears in four novels]. I'm like, 'Hurry up, everybody!' " He explained, "It is getting written right now but it should be on more of a fast track. Let's get this on, man."

As for the plot details, the Texan teased, "It's actually a mix of two. I won't reveal what those are, but it's a mix of two." He added, "I got good reviews on The Lincoln Lawyer. There's a lot of times that critics have written the review before they've seen the frickin' movie. They've written the review on me before they've seen it - maybe the critic doesn't like me."

Speaking about the 2011 critics' darling thriller, McConaughey claimed that the he didn't see the movie as a way to prove his comeback. "It didn't feel like a big return or revolution," he stated. "I mean, I understand how it could have been perceived as that, and that movie got well reviewed."
