For about ten years from the mid-’90s to the mid-’00s, author John Grisham was a ubiquitous presence in Hollywood. 1993 saw the releases of The Firm and The Client, both based on bestselling Grisham books, and adaptations like A Time to Kill, The Rainmaker, and Runaway Jury soon followed. In recent years, however, his popularity has waned. Aside from the new NBC series The Firm, which debuted in January, it’s been about eight years since we’ve seen any of Grisham’s novels come to life.
But legal thrillers have never completely gone out of fashion, and Grisham could be heading back to the big screen again soon with the help of Mark Wahlberg. The Fighter star is in early talks for The Partner, based on Grisham’s book of the same title. More details after the jump.
