Will Forte and Tim Robbins have joined the cast of writer/director Dan Schechter’s The Switch, based on the 1978 novel by Elmore Leonard.
Variety are reporting that the pair will be replacing the outgoing Ty Burrell and Dennis Quaid in a prequel of sorts to Quentin Tarantino’s Jackie Brown.
A synopsis for The Switch reads: “Ordell Robbie and Louis Gara have lots in common—time in the same slammer, convictions for grand theft auto, and a plan for a big score. They’re going to snatch the wife of a Detroit developer and collect some easy ransom money. They don’t figure on a bum of a husband who has a secret mistress and no desire to get his wife back. Or on his crazy, beautiful broad of a housewife who’s going to join Ordell and Louis in the slickest, saviest crime of all.”
