 Comment on 'The Switch' Adaptation Adds Tim Robbins, Will Forte

"The Switch" adaptation by director and writer Dan Schechter has added Tim Robbins and Will Forte who are replacing Ty Burrell and Dennis Quaid, reports Variety.

Adapted from the 1978 novel written by Elmore Leonard, the film also has John Hawkes, Yasiin Bey (a.k.a. Mos Def), Jennifer Aniston and Isla Fisher on board.

The crime drama and prequel to "Jackie Brown" stars Hawkes and Bey as young Louis Gara and Ordell Robbie respectively - characters played in "Jackie Brown" Robert De Niro and Samuel L. Jackson.

The story takes place fifteen years prior to "Jackie Brown" and follows Ordell and Louis as they join forces to kidnap Aniston's Mickey Dawson character who's the wife of Robbins, a corrupt real estate developer.

However, when the hubby chooses not to pay the ransom demand, the ex-cons are left to reconceive their plan as an angry wife uses them to plot her revenge against her husband. 

Forte will play a married member of a country club called Marshall Taylor who has the hots for Mickey and witnesses her kidnapping. 

Ellen Goldsmith-Vein and Lee Stollman of The Gotham Group produce alongside Michael Siegel and Elmore Leonard with production starting sometime in February this year.
