Will Forte And Tim Robbins Switch Places With Ty Burrell And Dennis Quaid For THE SWITCH!!
The Kidd here...
No, this isn't one of those body-swapping flicks, as we certainly don't need any more of those (still have a soft spot for Fred Savage and Judge Reinhold in VICE VERSA though). This is Dan Schechter's as-yet-untilted adaptation of Elmore Leonard's novel The Switch, which showcases the early days of Louis Gara and Ordell Robbie, characters originated by Robert De Niro and Samuel L. Jackson in Quentin Tarantino's JACKIE BROWN, now set to be played by John Hawkes and Yaslin Bey.
This time, 15 years before the events of JACKIE BROWN/Rum Punch, Ordell and Louis kidnap the wife of a shady real estate developer. The wife is set to be played by Jennifer Aniston, which normally would be a cringe-worthy thought, but perhaps she's turned things around a bit after grabbing hold of the juicy material in HORRIBLE BOSSES. Robbins is now lined up to play the developer after Quaid recently dropped off the project, according to Variety. When her husband refuses to pay up for her release, plans change, and it's Aniston now turning the tables on her spouse with the help of Louis and Ordell.
As for Forte's participation, he'll be playing a wed country club member with a thing for Aniston who battles through his own moral quandary after seeing her get taken, replacing the departed Burrell.
