Tommy Lee Jones has replaced Harrison Ford in Amazon’s The Burial.

Deadline first shared news of Jones‘ casting, though the reason for Ford’s departure from the project is unknown. Ford is currently working on the production of Indiana Jones 5.

Jones will star opposite Jamie Foxx, who is also set to produce the feature. Directed by Maggie Betts, the script is being penned by Dough Wright.

The Burial is based on a true story, first depicted in an article by the New Yorker. After a bankrupt funeral home owner decides to sue a rival businessman over a handshake deal gone wrong, he hires a flamboyant lawyer to handle the case.
