Will Forte and Tim Robbins have replaced the previously-cast Ty Burrell and Dennis Quaid in “the Switch”, the “Jackie Brown” precursor from director Dan Schechter.

Based on Elmore Leonard’s book of the same name, the film stars John Hawkes, Yasiin Bey, Jennifer Aniston and Isla Fisher.

Variety says :

Crime drama, which will serve as a prequel to Quentin Tarantino’s “Jackie Brown,” stars Hawkes and Bey as younger versions of Robert De Niro and Samuel L. Jackson’s characters Louis Gara and Ordell Robbie, who also appear in Leonard’s novel “Rum Punch.”
Set 15 years before the events in “Jackie Brown,” story follows career criminals Ordell and Louis as they team up to kidnap Mickey Dawson (Aniston), the wife of a corrupt real estate developer (Robbins). When the husband refuses to pay the ransom for his wife’s return, the ex-cons are forced to reconceive their plan, and the angry housewife uses them to get her revenge.
Forte, who just wrapped the lead role in Alexander Payne’s “Nebraska,” will play Marshall Taylor, a married country club member who harbors a crush on Mickey and spends most of the film in a moral dilemma after witnessing her kidnapping.
